At its recent Tokyo Game Show 2022 presentation, Capcom officially announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake will also head to PS4 in addition to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. However, no Xbox One version was announced. In addition to that, Capcom also confirmed a new Resident Evil Showcase set to take place in October.
The Resident Evil 4 remake was announced earlier this year, billed as a full ground-up remake of the original 2005 survival horror game. The remake will place more emphasis on the horror elements than in the original, focusing on atmospheric tension and a darker setting. It’s scheduled to launch on 24 March 2023 for consoles and PC.

Capcom originally announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake would be exclusive to current generation consoles as well as PC, but today announced at Tokyo Game Show that it will also be releasing on PS4. Sadly, the company didn’t announce an Xbox One version which is a bit strange. That said, players who haven’t been able to get their hands on a PS5 yet will be able to enjoy the remake when it releases next year.
While the game did appear briefly at Capcom’s recent presentation, the company stated that fans can look forward to seeing more of the game at a planned Resident Evil Showcase set for next month, though no specific date was given. These showcases revolve around the future of the Resident Evil franchise and might shed some light on other projects, be it film, television or video games currently in development related to the series.
Capcom has been remaking several of its Resident Evil classics over the past few years, including Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. The original game launched in 2005 for GameCube before finding its way to other platforms like PS2 and PC. It’s widely regarded as one of the best video games of all time.
