Capcom has always been happy to re-release the early entries in the Resident Evil franchise on any new platform that comes along, but they’re clearly taking it to a new level with their latest announcement. Over on the Capcom-Unity blog, the publisher has just confirmed that they plan to bring Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 to the PS4 and Xbox One this year.
All three games will be priced at $19.99 apiece, and Resident Evil 6 will launch first, on March 29. It’ll be followed by Resident Evil 5 this Summer, and Resident Evil 4 in the Fall. And for fans to buy their games from a brick-and-mortar retailer, Capcom plans to stock store shelves with a physical game disc for each title.
It’s a good time to be a fan of the Resident Evil franchise as nearly the entire series has received, or is in line to receive, a re-release on the PS4 and Xbox One. Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 are currently available on the current-generation consoles, while a full Resident Evil 2 remake is set to launch next year.
