Capcom is planning to reissue its survival horror series sequel Resident Evil 6 for current generation console platforms, recent content ratings submissions indicate.

Gematsu reports that the Korean Game Rating Board rated Resident Evil 6 for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, suggesting that a remastered edition is imminent.

The Korean Game Rating Board previously outed the existence of console ports for Resident Evil: Revelations, lending credence to the possibility that Resident Evil 6 will see a similar upgrade in the coming months. Capcom officially announced that upgraded versions of Resident Evil: Revelations were in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 shortly after ratings data surfaced for both ports in 2012.

Released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms in 2012, Resident Evil 6 features four playable characters, each of whom boasts their own unique campaign. Gameplay mechanics vary wildly between each of Resident Evil 6‘s playable chapters, shaking up established series conventions throughout.

Resident Evil 6 also features co-operative play in all of its chapters, allowing players to team up with friends to take down undead foes in split-screen and online multiplayer modes. A significant amount of downloadable content launched in the wake of Resident Evil 6‘s release, adding a collection of new multiplayer modes and other features. It’s likely that Capcom will bundle previously released DLC with the upcoming Xbox One and PS4 versions of Resident Evil 6.

The Resident Evil series has been a focal point for Capcom in recent months, as the publisher announced plans to produce remakes for Resident Evil 0 and the fan favorite Resident Evil 2. A competitive multiplayer spinoff game, Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, is slated to launch for the PlayStation 4 and PCs in 2016.

Capcom has not confirmed plans to publish upgraded versions of Resident Evil 6 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and release dates for the ports are not yet known.
