New Report Suggests a Resident Evil 4 Remake is in Development
According to VGC, Capcom supposedly is developing a Resident Evil 4 remake. Capcom has not officially made any announcement yet, so nothing is finalized. The remake is reportedly under development by the developers at M-Two, founded by former PlatinumGames head Tatsuya Minami. M-Two was the team that provided assistance with Resident Evil 3’s remake, which released earlier this month. VGC also reports that the original director, Shinji Mikami, has given his blessing. The game is supposedly set for a 2022 release and will likely launch on next generation platforms.
Resident Evil 4, originally releasing in 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube, is a fan favorite of the series. The first entry in the series to adopt a new perspective, Resident Evil 4 was the winner of multiple awards. It has also found itself on several other platforms, from PlayStation 2 to Xbox One. It’s unknown how much of the original title will make its way into the remake. Some fans have expressed disappointment with the reimagined Resident Evil 3 removing elements of the original story. Hopefully it includes the Ada Wong campaign, Separate Ways. But really, we just want an excuse to see the infamous Merchant return.
Capcom recently ran a survey for fans that asked if they would be interested in other Resident Evil remakes. Of the options, Resident Evil 4 was one of them. Resident Evil: Code Veronica was also on the list, and some fans are upset that this wasn’t the remake in development. We’ll likely have more information soon, and we’ll report on it as soon as we know. Are you looking forward to a Resident Evil 4 remake? Let us know in the comments below.
