Resident Evil Village was to be released over several generations, but has only been announced for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X during the last PlayStation showcase.
The rumor was broadcast by a reliable initiate, Dusk Golem (alias Aesthetic Gamer), who had disclosed the initial flow of information on the game long before its official revelation.
According to Dusk Golem, Capcom tried to put the game on PS4 and Xbox One alongside PC and new generation machines.
However, the Japanese label had to abandon because the next title of the franchise will focus on exploration through the heart of the village, which aims to be completely transparent thanks to the speed of the SSD.
Based on the information collected by the initiate, the PS4 and Xbox One versions encountered pop-in, long texture loads and loading times, which was unacceptable for Capcom.
“The game makes you travel through most of the village and has had a lot of loading areas,” he added, “there is greater concentration on exploration.”
Thanks to the removal of current generation platforms, Resident Evil Village We say now that there is “no load at all”, even if we do not know how it will work on PC configurations without SSD and if there will have a difference between PS5 and Xbox Series X, because the PlayStation SSD will be about twice as fast.
The next Resident Evil The game arrives in 2021 but still does not have an appropriate release date.
