Industry insider and analyst ZhugeEX posted up a tweet recently showing an image captured from the Xbox Store of Capcom’s Resident Evil 5. It features a quick glimpse at the game being listed for a June 28th release on the Xbox One, and presumably the PS4.
The tweet shows the game listed for 15 British pounds, so that would likely translate into $20 for us yanks. The listing states that it’s running in full HD with 1920 x 1080p support and still features the co-op play that made the game bearable to begin with. You can check out the tweet from ZhugeEX and the image of the store page below.

If you can’t read the text from the store description, it basically states…
“One of the most popular Resident Evil titles comes to Xbox One in full 1080p HD with an increased frame rate. Featuring single-player and co-op modes and a dramatic storyline, this fully-loaded release includes all previously released DLC (Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape story expansions, Versus mode, extra [cuts off]”
ZhugeEX expects Capcom to complete the HD remasters with the re-release of one of the most popular Resident Evil titles – Resident Evil 4 – at some point in September. I would be excited if I hadn’t already played that game like a dozen times before, and then played it again a few times more on PC even with that gosh-awful Ubisoft port. The modding community really made the PC version a standout piece of entertainment, though.
Capcom had previously announced that Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 would make their way to the Xbox One and PS4, but the early listing on the U.K., version of the Xbox Store points to a late June release.
Given the popularity of Resident Evil 4, it’s likely that it will be pushed into the fall so Capcom can reap the sweet, sweet profits of the almighty holiday shopping fever.
