Although Microsoft has yet to officially announce the Xbox One version of Resident Evil 4’s remake, the game has been found being advertised at video game retailers.
Capcom originally stated that the Resident Evil 4 remake would only be available for next-gen systems, such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox One S, when it was first announced. However, Capcom has now broadened the reach of the Resident Evil 4 remake to include PlayStation 4.
Fans’ reactions were divided when Capcom announced that the Resident Evil 4 remake would be coming to PlayStation 4. Those who hadn’t bought a PS5 were relieved to hear they could play the Resident Evil 4 remake on their older systems.
However, some were dismayed that this would make Resident Evil 4’s remake yet another cross-gen release that wouldn’t make the most of the new hardware. Fans of Microsoft’s console are mystified as to why the Resident Evil 4 remake has been revealed for the PlayStation 4 but not the Xbox One.
Capcom has decided not to adopt the remake of Resident Evil 4 to Xbox One, even though it is proceeding with a PS4 version of the game. Indeed, no Xbox One port has been revealed as of this writing.
Despite this, many game stores are already advertising an Xbox One version of the game, presumably assuming it would be released for that platform following the PS4 version. Reddit user ARKGENIUS09 found an advertisement for the Xbox One version of the Resident Evil 4 remake.
Capcom has not yet confirmed that the Resident Evil 4 remake will be available for Xbox One, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be. There have been speculations that the Resident Evil 4 remake is also available for Xbox One, which, if true, begs the question of why it hasn’t been announced.
It’s a strange circumstance, and no reasonable explanations are available. There isn’t much time left for Capcom to unveil the Xbox One port of the Resident Evil 4 remake.
The release date for the remake of Resident Evil 4 is rapidly approaching, and as of right now, Xbox players can expect to be able to play it only on Xbox Series X and S consoles. On March 24, PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One Series X will have access to Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil 4 Remake SteelBook Edition Images
In just a few weeks, Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 remake will be released, and in preparation for the release, a beautiful SteelBook will be available for purchase. The SteelBook is sold separately from the game at Best Buy locations for $9.99.
In contrast, SteelBooks are typically included as a pre-order bonus or as part of an expensive collector’s edition. This means Resident Evil fans who want to add this to their collection won’t have to spend a fortune doing so.
This one is a steal compared to the one included in the $249.99 Collector’s Edition. Embedded below is a Tweet from @Wario64 showing off the SteelBook. The photographs show that the SteelBook case contains artwork by Leon S. Kennedy, Ashley Graham, and a group of afflicted locals from Las Plagas.

It’s an attractive poster that looks noticeably different from the one included with the Collector’s Edition of the game, so dedicated Resident Evil fans may want to pick up both. Resident Evil 4 was first released in 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube. The game was an extreme departure from the series’ norm and proved an instant hit with players.
Due to its popularity, Resident Evil 4 has been ported to a wide variety of systems throughout the past 18 years, with many of these ports introducing brand-new features and upgrades.
It would be fascinating to watch how well the remake of Resident Evil 4 is received and how closely it will follow what Capcom has done in the past, given how often the game has been re-released. It’s a big ask to remake a game that’s already received high praise, but here’s hoping Capcom can pull it off.
