Resident Evil, Capcom's classic survival-horror action game, has been a paradigm of horror in both video games and film entertainment. Many gamers who played through some of the older Resident Evil titles consider most of them to be classics while many of those fans have been clamoring for remakes and remasters over the years since these games were released. Unsurprisingly, Capcom recently announced that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 will all be seeing a remastered edition on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Resident Evil 6 will be the first of the trio to be released in its remastered edition, which is to come out on March 29. Capcom has stated that Resident Evil 5 will follow-up after Resident Evil 6, releasing sometime this summer. Resident Evil 4, widely considered to be the best entry in the series, will be remastered and released sometime in the fall season of this year. Capcom has also confirmed that all of the post-launch DLC will be a part of these re-releases. Each game will be available for $19.99 digitally, with physical copies being made available in America.
On March 22, it will have been 20 years since the first Resident Evil was released. It was expected that Capcom might actually announce a brand new title, possibly Resident Evil 7, to commemorate the past 20 years for the series. Although that announcement is still possible, it would seem that Capcom would have their hands full with remastering Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6, as well as the full Resident Evil 2 remake that was confirmed last year.
With this announcement, however, as well as the HD remaster of Resident Evil Zero and the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom is quickly running out of games to re-release so the possibility of seeing a brand new installment in the main series is ever-growing.
