Resident Evil 8: PS4 and Xbox One versions were canceled due to development problems
Updated: Jun 24
Resident Evil 8 Village was officially announced last week. The title will come to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. However, there are still doubts about whether current consoles will receive it, doubts that could have been resolved with a report.
One of the biggest announcements that came out during the last PS5 presentation was Resident Evil 8. The title nicknamed Resident Evil Village was an open secret, but it was finally confirmed to the world with a fantastic trailer.
The vast majority of rumors and leaks that had been discussed in recent months about the game have turned out to be true. The doubts have given way to resounding affirmations, both in locations, characters, and details such as the plot and the new additions.
Therefore, everything that can be heard at this point could also be true and is that, according to a report, Resident Evil 8 was an intergenerational title that would be available in both next-gen and current consoles. However, Capcom ended up ruling this out.
One of the best-known associated filters of the saga, Dusk Golem, and who, as we say, was right in many of his revelations months ago, has commented that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Resident Evil 8 Village had to be canceled due to various problems in development.
In a thread on Twitter, it is commented that the numerous load times in the current generation, the breadth of the village, and the mechanics focused on exploration made immersion and its development very expensive on PS4 and Xbox One. Therefore, Capcom would have ruled out releasing a version for these consoles.
If this is confirmed, it would be concluded that Resident Evil 8 is a completely created game for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. If you want to know all the details about the game, don't miss the article that talks about the inventory, gameplay and detail that is repeated in the trailer.
