Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4 will be released for the iPhone 15 Pro: And that is supposed to be just the beginning. In an interview with Bloomberg, Capcom gives a glimpse into the future and AAA games on smartphones are to play a bigger role.

More AAA games on mobile

100 million title sales per year is the goal: Bloomberg has interviewed Haruhiro Tsujimoto – Capcom’s COO. In the interview, the company reveals that they are aiming to sell 100 million titles per year – and that AAA games on smartphones should play an important role in this.

However, Tsujimoto assures that the majority of sales will continue to come from PC titles. 

In fact, Capcom has been planning to port full-fledged blockbuster titles to smartphones for quite some time, but the technology required to do so has not been ready until now. 

The beginning is now to make Resident Evil Village, which will be released according to Capcom and the Apple App Store on October 30 – one day before Halloween. 

The following iPhones and iPads will be compatible:

  • iPhone 15 Pro 
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max
  • iPad Pro (12.9 inch, M1, 5th gen)
  • iPad Pro (11-inch, M1, 3rd Gen)
  • iPad Pro (12.9-inch, M2, 6th Gen)
  • iPad Pro (11-inch, M2, 4th Gen)
  • iPad Air (M1, 5th Gen)

A release date for Resident Evil 4 Remake has not been set yet, but it is still scheduled for release in 2023. Capcom and Apple want to continue working together in the future – so it is to be expected that even more AAA games will find their way onto iPhones and iPads. 

The iPhone 15 Pro is the next AAA gaming console – what do you think?

Does Capcom want to acquire other studios or be acquired itself? Bloomberg also asked interesting questions regarding corporate acquisitions and what Capcom’s stance is on them. According to Tsujimoto, Capcom has no interest in buying other studios and instead wants to grow organically. 

Should Microsoft offer to buy the company, Capcom would decline – they prefer a business partnership. 

What do you think of this development? Would you like to see more blockbuster titles on mobile? Can you imagine playing the next Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry or Resident Evil on a cell phone? And would you be willing to pay the prices of AAA games (upwards of 60 euros) for the mobile version? As always, write us your opinion on this topic in the comments! Resident Evil Village will be Capcom's first AAA game on the iPhone 15 Pro (Max). (Image: Apple Capcom)
