Andrew Webster for The Verge:

A trio of Resident Evil games is on its way to modern consoles. Today Capcom announced that Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6, will all be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year. The games appear to be largely straight ports without much in the way of improvements for the newer hardware.

While I can appreciate bringing RE4 to a new generation of gamers, given how much it changed the series and third-person shooters in general, RE5 I’m less excited about as it is, in my opinion, the lowest point of the series.

When will we be getting a new instalment? A complete reboot? An anniversary is a pretty great time for an announcement if you ask me.
