Resident Evil 4 remake will also be available on Playstation 4, according to a statement from Capcom. In the most recent Tokyo Games Showcase, this was announced.

If the remake will be released on Xbox One as well is uncertain.
Resident Evil 4 Remake: What We Know So Far
This year's PlayStation State of Play in June featured the official announcement of the Resident Evil 4 remake. A trailer with contemporary graphics and a synopsis of the story was unveiled, introducing Leon Kennedy, the protagonist. There were several rumors and leaks about it before to its announcement.
Resident Evil 4 receiving a remake is not shocking because Resident Evil 2 and 3 also received remakes. M-Two took over development in 2018, followed by Capcom Division 1 (the primary Resident Evil studio) in 2019.
According to Capcom's commercial producer Edvin Edso, the remaster will preserve the "essence" of the original while achieving "state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror." They are "reimagining the tale, upgrading the graphics, and updating the controls to a modern standard" to keep it feeling both fresh and dated at the same time. As a result, the story and gameplay will probably experience some minor adjustments.
Resident Evil 4 received positive reviews from both fans and critics when it was released in 2005. Numerous games eventually incorporated the third-person, off-the-shoulder perspective from the game. Nearly 11.4 million copies have been sold by the end of 2021. Although it has previously been remastered, this is the first time it has been totally recreated from scratch.
The game will be released on March 24, 2023, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. PSVR2 will also be supported. At the Resident Evil Showcase the following month, more information regarding the Resident Evil 4 remake will be revealed.
