Capcom to bring 3 more Resident Evil games to modern consoles in 2016
Capcom today announced some welcome news for fans of their long-running survival horror series. On the official Capcom-Unity page, blogger and employee Harrison confirmed that Resident Evil 4-6 will be making their way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year.
Check out the announcement below courtesy of the Capcom Unity blog post:
“In March 1996, the world was introduced to the first Resident Evil game, which helped shape survival horror as we know it and has since brought you some of the most loved games of all time. You’ve been able to play through the origins stories that started everything with the recent releases of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0, and we’ve confirmed that a remake of Resident Evil 2 is on the way. Since then, the series and story have evolved to amp up the action and introduce new epic gaming moments with Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6. If you haven’t had a chance to play these yet or if you’ve been wanting to play them on your current consoles, we’ve got good news for you. Starting with Resident Evil 6 on March 29, all three games will be available for PS4 and Xbox One for an MSRP of only $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.99 each.”

Between this and the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake that’s been in the works since last year, Capcom certainly seems to be putting the Resident Evil series front and center in 2016. Do you think this means we might hear word of Resident Evil 7 at this year’s E3 event in Los Angeles? I certainly hope so, so long as it’s a bit better than the past few numbered entries in the series. Be sure to sound off in the comments section and let us know what you think.
