Resident Evil HD Remastered coming to PS4, Xbox One

Capcom is developing a HD version of the Resident Evil remake that was first released on Nintendo's GameCube in 2002.

The game will be released digitally for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC in early 2015. It will feature full 1080p visuals as well as support for 5.1 surround sound audio.

Players will be able to pick between playing in the original 4:1 ratio or switching to 16:9. A classic control style, in addition to a style suited to modern games will be available to choose from.

Developed by Capcom Production Studio 4, the 2002 Resident Evil remake took the seminal PlayStation entry and updated gave it a complete visual overhaul as well as introduced new mechanics and systems from later entries in the series, as well puzzle design tweaks.

It was released for the GameCube and a Wii port was later developed by Happy Happening and Capcom.

In October 2013 an ex-costume designer for motion capture and animation studio House of Moves suggested Resident Evil 7 has been in production since at least November 2012.

Resident Evil 6, the last entry in the mainline series, was released in October 2012, suggesting that - if the information is correct - Capcom began production on a sequel almost immediately after its release, if not earlier.
