PS4 players will be able to experience the return of Leon Kennedy's harrowing adventure.


Updates for Resident Evil 4 Remake have been nonexistent since the game was first unveiled back in June, but during the Capcom TGS 2022 Online Program, the game was confirmed for release on a new platform: PlayStation 4.
