Japanese publication Sankei Shinbum has reported that Capcom will unveil Resident Evil 7 for PlayStation 4 at E3 in June (via DualShockers).

The report also quashes previous speculation that the next chapter in the multi-million selling survival horror franchise was to be an Xbox One exclusive release.

While Resident Evil 7 wasn’t explicitly mentioned by Capcom, the article mentions that an ‘important game’ will be announced by the firm at the Los Angeles-based games convention.

In addition, it states that Capcom is expected the game to shift 5.6 million copies worldwide.

PS4 was the only platform mentioned, but that doesn’t rule out an Xbox One release; Japanese media typically only mentions PlayStation platforms when it comes to the mainstream press reports.

Resident Evil 7 has been rumored for some time now, though it remains unknown what direction Capcom will take the series after the mild reception that its 2012 predecessor received by critics.
