Famous insider Aesthetic Gamer spoke on his twitter about the reason why RE8 isn’t launching for current gen hardware.
He said :
” Okay, I got some clarification on why they made RE8 next-gen only, When it was cross-gen previously. With the updated graphic fidelity overhaul they’re doing , the way RE8 was designed lead to past-gen consoles having a lot of pop-in/long texture loads/load times.
That’s because the game has you travelling through most of the Village and had a lot of load zones. Because there’s a bigger focus on exploration this would lead to the last-gen console versions having notable issues.
It was holding back how pretty they could make certain scenes. So they decided to drop the last-gen versions of the game to make it so the game had no loading at all and push the graphic overhaul further without the limitations of last-gen tech in mind. “
