It’s Been Confirmed That the Resident Evil Remake Has Been Rated
So for those who have been waiting for the Resident Evil remakes on the latest consoles, looks like we’ve gotten some hints.
While there had been word earlier from Capcom that Resident Evil Remake would be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, we did not know exactly when. But we’re now getting a better idea.
It’s been noticed that the remake for Resident Evil 3 has been rated for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S by the European classifications board, PEGI. This has been for just the one game of the franchise so far, as, interestingly enough, there have not been any notifications that RE2, nor RE 7 have been rated. Not yet. And Capcom did state that all three games would be coming to the latest consoles in the future.
But, too, these releases would be digital-only- so those who had been hoping to get a physical copy will be disappointed. So far, there are no plans in place to get a physical version for the PS5 or the Xbox Series X|S for the Resident Evil games, and it sounds like there will not be in the future.
Hopefully, this is incorrect, and things may change in the future.
On a more exciting note, while all three games have been previously released, meaning that the rating can happen at any time with the European, North American, etc rating boards, this is a good sign. Usually, games getting ratings are among the last check before game release. Also, getting a game rated needs a publisher to submit it for review.
So, it’s possible that we will be hearing more of the remakes for Resident Evil 2, 3, and Resident Evil 7 before long.
We will update you when we hear more!
