Update: Capcom has officially confirmed via Capcom Unity that Resident Evil 5 will release for PS4 and Xbox One on June 28th.

Original Story: Capcom may have not officially announced the release date for the PS4 and Xbox One version of Resident Evil 5, however it seems that the Xbox One Marketplace has beaten them to the punch.  On the Marketplace it revealed that Resident Evil 5 will release for Xbox One on June 28th, it’s safe to assume that this will be the same release date for PS4.  For those of you interested, according to the Marketplace listing, Resident Evil 5 will have a download size of 15.95GB.

Along with the 1080p visuals, the new-gen version of Resident Evil 5 will come with all previously released DLC, which includes the story expansions Lost in Nightmares (which in my opinion is as close to Resi of old in recent years) and Desperate Escape, not to mention various Versus and Mercenary modes and maps.  It will also come with the once PC exclusive modes, No Mercy and The Mercenaries United (which is a combination of The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion).

With the release date not being officially announced, we currently do not have any new gameplay footage to show-off (though I suspect that will arrive very soon, especially with E3 around the corner), however courtesy again of the Xbox One Marketplace, we do have a batch of new screenshots, which can be found below.
