Why Resident Evil 8 Isn’t Coming for Current-Gen Consoles

Famous insider Aesthetic Gamer spoke on his twitter about the reason why RE8 isn’t launching for current gen hardware.

He said :

” Okay, I got some clarification on why they made RE8 next-gen only, When it was cross-gen previously. With the updated graphic fidelity overhaul they’re doing , the way RE8 was designed lead to past-gen consoles having a lot of pop-in/long texture loads/load times.

That’s because the game has you travelling through most of the Village and had a lot of load zones. Because there’s a bigger focus on exploration this would lead to the last-gen console versions having notable issues.

It was holding back how pretty they could make certain scenes. So they decided to drop the last-gen versions of the game to make it so the game had no loading at all and push the graphic overhaul further without the limitations of last-gen tech in mind. “

Resident Evil 8 launches in 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC. Are you excited to continue Ethan’s story ?
