Rumor: Resident Evil 8 Village's PS5 Version "A Hurdle" For Development, PS4/XB1 May Still Be On - Rely on Horror
The development of Capcom's Resident Evil 8 is reportedly hitting some development hurdles based on next-gen hardware, with possible implications
Veteran insider and “leaker” for the Resident Evil series with a nearly impeccable track record, DuskGolem (aka AestheticGamer), has recently tweeted a series of updates about the development of Resident Evil 8 and it’s not exactly good news.
He states that even after the PS4 and Xbox One versions have been shelved to help optimize and possibly speed up the development of the game by focusing on current-gen hardware, which has led to some strides and progress in many key areas of the development, there’s one version, in particular, that’s proving difficult to get working on-par with the other versions being developed. He reports that the PS5 version of the game is struggling to keep up with several experimental upgrades and improvements they’ve tried to implement recently, even while these features have worked perfectly on the Xbox Series X and PC versions of the game.
