“While Resident Evil Village is being developed specifically for next-generation consoles and PC, we’re looking into delivering the experience on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well,” he said.
“We’re looking into it, but we can’t make any promises. However, we will do out best in creating a top-tier survival horror experience on current-generation consoles.
“Hopefully [we’ll] be able to able to share some more good information, but it’s really exciting, right? So keep tuned for more information on this front.”
Resident Evil Village, which is scheduled for release on next-gen consoles and PC in 2021, was announced during a PS5 event in June. It takes place several years after the events of Resident Evil 7 and retains a first-person perspective.
Players once again take on the role of Ethan Winters, who’s now living peacefully with his wife Mia, but that ordinary life is shattered by Chris Redfield, who helped Ethan in the previous game.
During its TGS presentation, Capcom said the village plays a central role in the game, so much so that it can be considered “another main character”.
Director Morimasa Sato also said in a new ‘making of’ video (above): “We thought a lot about making a game that you can make your own approach to, where you could figure out your own solutions to the problems you face.
“This is something we decided to do a lot more with this game, so you have a lot more freedom than in Resident Evil 7. We want players to experiment, to figure out things that work for them. We want everyone to think of Resident Evil Village as a horror movie that you can play.”
