Well, we know the fact that the new Resident Evil game, Resident Evil Village could have skipped the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One entirely if the companies wanted to. Because we have new and better consoles now.
And with the new gameplay videos and trailers, we were able to see the fact that the game works just as smoothly and well as it works on next-gen consoles and modern PCs. However, producer Tsuyoshi Kanda explained that the company was not planning to release this game on last-gen consoles. They made this decision in July when the game got announced.
Kanda explained “We developed Village as a game for next-gen hardware, but in order to make it accessible to more players, we went through a lot of trial and error to somehow provide a comparable experience on last-gen hardware. In the end, we were able to deliver a high-quality product for last-gen hardware as well. That being said, if the quality hadn’t been sufficient, I don’t think we would have released it.” while talking to IGN.
Director Morimasa Sato added “If there was a big difference in graphical quality or framerate, it would not have been something we could deliver to players, so we did our best to make sure it would be satisfying on any platform,”
And according to the gameplay footage and demos we have so far, the company really did a great job porting the game on last-gen consoles.
