Resident Evil 4 Remake news for PlayStation and Xbox fans
It could be seen as either good news or bad for Resi fans, but it looks like a Resident Evil 4 Remake is in the works. The latest rumours suggest that Capcom has been priming the project for several years and have a plan in place to tackle it in the coming years. And it shouldn’t be understated how big a project this could be for Resident Evil gamers.
RE4 is one of the highest-rated games from the franchise and is also seen as one of the best among fans.
It’s noted for revamping the Resident Evil formula, bringing a third-person perspective, while doing away with fixed camera positions and fast-paced combat.
“In resident evil 4, special agent Leon S. Kennedy is sent on a mission to rescue the U.S. President’s daughter who has been kidnapped,” the official game description explains.
“Finding his way to a rural village in Europe, he faces new threats that are a departure from the traditional lumbering zombie enemies of the earlier instalments in the series.
“Leon battles horrific new creatures infested by a new threat called Las Plagas and faces off against an aggressive group of enemies including mind-controlled villagers that are tied to Los Illuminados, the mysterious cult which is behind the abduction.”
WHEN IS THE RESIDENT EVIL 4 REMAKE RELEASE DATE?
It may sound a bit forward, but we appear to already know when Capcom is hoping to launch its Resident Evil 4 Remake.
According to a new report from VGC, the Resident Evil 4 Remake release date has been set for 2022.
Unfortunately, there has been no mention of what platforms the new game is set for and that could have a huge effect on the project. It seems likely that Capcom will want to release what could be its biggest Remake on as many platforms as possible.
But launching the Resi 4 Remake on PS4 and Xbox One would hold it back in other departments.
For now, all we know is that Capcom is reportedly working on a Resident Evil 4 Remake that will hit shelves during 2022.
The new game project is being worked on by multiple teams, although development is being led by Osaka-based M-Two.
This is a new studio led by Tatsuya Minami, which has been priming for the new Resident Evil project since 2018.
It’s believed that other studios will be helping out, and will include input from team members who put together Resident Evil 2 Remake.
Multiple sources have emerged regarding the new Resident Evil 4 Remake, making it seem more likely to be true.
The Twitter account Dusk Gold has been sharing a lot about the future of the franchise, telling fans online:
“M-Two was developed with this project in mind, it was always their plan to remake RE4. RE4 Remake’s development began in 2018, and by the time it releases (aiming for 2022, but it may slip back further, who knows) it’ll have been in dev for 4+ years.
“It has a larger team than the previous remakes, M-Two is the lead on this one (they helped a lot with RE3 also, but yeah Red Works were the leads there). RE3 was the first game M-Two worked on as a team, but there are various ex-Capcom and ex-Platinum people who work there
“I understand the interest/concerns, but whether it helps or not be aware RE4 does have a larger overall team than RE2 or RE3 Remake had and a lot of time conceptualizing it, development started in 2018 but there were talks before that. Parts of Div 1’s RE2 Remake team and DMC5 teams are helping with this project.
“The bad thing about something like this coming out so early is you’re literally not going to see it anytime soon probably, probably its reveal is in like a year, year and a half from now, so I guess get ready to sit on this one for a while.”
