Resident Evil 4 Remake Coming to PS4, Showcase in October 2022
Capcom has long made official the work on Resident Evil 4 Remake, although directly from the Tokyo Game Show the publisher has now confirmed that the game will also be released on PS4.
In fact, during the live broadcast this afternoon, the producer of the game Yoshiaki Hirabayashi announced that the remake of the classic horror game will also be released on PlayStation 4. Initially, the title was planned as an exclusive next-gen console for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, but it seems that Capcom has changed its mind.
Hirabayashi also pointed out that the development of the game is only on the PlayStation 4, but not on the Xbox One, as far as the older generation platforms are concerned.
Speaking of announcements, Capcom also revealed that in October it will hold a new Resident Evil Showcase in which it will provide news and updates on its games in development from the horror series. To be precise, next month we can expect news on Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, Resident Evil 4, and “more”.

The game will feature a third-person camera and is a total re-imagine. Other than that, the developers want to keep the identity of the classic RE4. They want to make sure that it retains the feeling of fear and loneliness of the first game and continues to include exciting battles.
When this Resident Evil Showcase will be held still remains a mystery, but we await confirmation of the date and time of the event for the next few weeks.
Recall that Resident Evil 4 Remake will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series on March 24, 2023. The remake appears to introduce some fundamental changes to the original game and may even have ties to Resident Evil Village.
