Capcom’s next entry into the Resident Evil franchise is Resident Evil Village which is due out next year. Development on the game is not going too well apparently, as it’s having some issues running on a particular next-gen console.
The PlayStation 5 is perhaps one of the most complicated consoles for developers. Even seasons developers like Capcom apparently have tough times with it. For Resident Evil Village, it seems like it’s more than a taxing task for the developer to make the game run on the PlayStation 5.
Resident Evil community leaker Dusk Golem revealed a few behind-the-scenes details about development on the next game. He says that work on the Xbox Series X and PC versions of the game are working well. However, the PlayStation 5 is having issues running the game.
Currently, the developers are apparently wondering whether or not they should downgrade the game on the PlayStation 5. If that does happen, it might be a big issue with fans who play on the console. Obviously, players should take this rumor with a grain of salt as it is yet to be verified.
What is the game about
Not much has been revealed about Resident Evil Village yet. Capcom has only revealed cinematic trailers for the upcoming entry in the horror franchise. Based on what we’ve seen so far, the next game will dive into cult territory. Capcom itself has said that it will be a big departure to what fans have been used to.
The trailers also tease that the game will be the end of the line for the series mainstay, Chris Redfield. Fans are concerned that it might mean that it would be the death of the popular character, but we’ll have to wait and see what Capcom means by this.
There’s no exact release date for the game yet, but Capcom says that it will release next year. Capcom is also apparently thinking about putting the game on current-gen platforms, but they’ve yet to make any concrete plans on it. Hopefully, they do so as there will be some fans who’ll prefer to play on those consoles.
Resident Evil Village looks to be an exciting game for the next console of generations. If a seasoned veteran like Capcom is having issues with it, then there might be other developers struggling with the platform as well. For now, fans are still waiting for some gameplay footage for the game.
