What Remains of Edith Finch Reportedly Getting Native PS5 and Xbox Series Versions

The groundbreaking narrative-driven title may be headed to new-gen consoles.

Publisher Annapurna Interactive may be gearing up for a re-release of one of its most memorable titles, as the Taiwanese official game rating for What Remains of Edith Finch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles may have leaked online. If true, this will be the second major re-release of the game since its initial outing back in 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; the first one was on Nintendo Switch back in 2019.

The listing was highlighted in another publication as the original one from the Taiwan game rating board may have been hidden now at the time of writing. Fortunately, the site managed to produce a screenshot which you can check out below.

While still unconfirmed at this point, an early ratings reveal on a foreign game rating board bodes a good sign for those looking for a native PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series console version of What Remains of Edith Finch. According to those who went in-depth to review it on last-gen consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions left a lot to be desired, with the same outlet pointing out that the PS4 version only ran at 1080p and 30 FPS, with stuttering issues sprinkled throughout. The Xbox One version didn’t fare much better, as it sported a dynamic 1080p resolution with severe texture pop-in issues.

Given that the game is more than five years old at this point, it would not be surprising to see this potential PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of What Remains of Edith Finch with some much-needed love. Native 4K at 60 FPS will be a welcome upgrade and a definitive way to experience this one-of-a-kind narrative-driven journey on next-gen consoles.

What Remains of Edith Finch is a first-person exploration title that tells the story of the eponymous Edith Finch and various members of each generation of her family. The Finch line is said to be afflicted with a mysterious curse that kills all but one of the members of each generation, with the game exploring the circumstances of the perceived curse and how it affected the family. The game was met with glowing reviews from critics, many citing it as a prime example of video games as an actual art form.
