Sony Playstation 5:
Fair marks four years since the launch of Resident Evil 7 on PS4, PC and Xbox One and its proposition has proven to be still valid today. So much that Capcom will work on relaunching the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S with a new generation version that takes advantage of technical and performance improvements of both consoles.
This has been assured Twilight Golem, the well-known insider who leaked all the details of Resident Evil 8: Village even before its official announcement. This user ensures “100%” that the previous installment of the horror saga receives a “next generation patch” like many other games from the previous generation receive. He wonders, yes, why Capcom didn’t say any of that at this week’s Resident Evil showcase and whose summary you can read in Spanish here.
I know virtual reality was at one point, I don’t know the current state. To do VR, they need a consistent performance for motion sickness, I guess to see. There are other things that are 100% happening that for some reason weren’t mentioned here, like the RE7 Next-Gen patch. https://t.co/1zNHti0k0x— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@ AestheticGamer1) January 21, 2021
Resident Evil 8: Village could have a VR version
Another detail that Dusk Golem assured is that Capcom reportedly worked on a VR version of Resident Evil 8: Village like Resident Evil 7. He hasn’t confirmed that this will happen, but he does know that it has been investigated at some point in development; currently admits not knowing his “current state” and that this version would require extensive work against vertigo. In addition to the VR version of the new game and the next-gen patch for the previous one, Dusk Golem says there are “other things” confirmed that weren’t said at the Resident Evil Showcase.
This week we also learned that Resident Evil 4 Remake will have relaunched its development thus delaying its launch. This game is not yet confirmed by Capcom, but it seems like a logical move and an open secret. However, he does not appear in Resident Evil Showcase and some sources point to disagreements in the creative vision of the project between Capcom and the developers, which would have affected the launch plans.
