Capcom is Behind the Resident Evil 6 PC Port

Ever since SourceNext developed the PC Port for Resident Evil 4 some fans on the PC side of things have been a bit cautious with Resident Evil Ports. However, Capcom took over the porting process for Resident Evil 5, and as a result the PC version of the fifth game was a great port. Unfortunately, Capcom has since been in the dark about the PC version of Resident Evil 6. That is until a few anxious fans started poking around and got a response from Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson.

It is a small, but appropriately sized team working on the RE6 PC project. It is a different group than originally planned, lest it would have taken even longer than it currently will but this team will do a better job than what was being considered originally.

The process did not begin until after the console versions were complete, submitted, approved by console 1st parties to use that final codebase as the starting point.

It will be some time still before we provide details on release dates and PC specific parameters.

Projects like this you guys seem to think are “trivial” but they are not. When they get treated as trivial, you end up with Resident Evil 4 PC… which I don’t think too many true fans were pleased with.

So, there you have it. While some PC gamers may be a bit upset that it’s coming a few months after the console version, the good news is that they are taking their time and the port will not disappoint when released.
