Though an untimely leak threatened to spoil the surprise, Capcom has officially nailed down plans to release Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 across PS4 and Xbox One throughout the course of 2016.
Priced at $19.99 (€19.99/£15.99) each, the revamped trilogy will begin rolling out with the release of Resident Evil 6 on March 29, followed by RE5 in summer and the seminal RE4 in fall 2016. Plans are in place for the three horror titles to launch digitally, though Capcom notes that physical versions of the long-rumored ports will hit the Americas during those respective windows.
Now that it’s out in the open, Capcom’s official logline describes the HD compilation as so:
Play as Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil 4 as he battles a multitude of threats to rescue the U.S. President’s daughter. Jump into Resident Evil 5 solo or co-op as Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they join forces to solve the truth behind a new outbreak. Experience Resident Evil 6 with a full roster of new and returning characters, as they combat the C-Virus as it threatens humanity on a global scale.
Resident Evil 6 will herald the beginning of the HD compilation on March 29, bundling together “all the additional post-launch content from the console version (DLC and all the costumes originally only available through ResidentEvil.net).” It’ll be quickly followed by RE5 at some point in the summer, before Resident Evil 4 – itself no stranger to the remake treatment – arrives during fall 2016.
