Prominent leaker AestheticGamer has provided some new tidbits on the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake that’s reportedly in the works at M-Two Studio.
Resident Evil 4 Remake Details
According to the insider, Resident Evil 4 remake has been in the works since 2018, so it’ll have been in the oven for around 4 years when it finally launches in 2022. M-Two was set up specifically to remake the project, which features a larger team than both the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remake.
Unlike Resident Evil 3, M-Two is the lead developer on this game, whereas on the previous project they were helping out Red Works.
The project does have Shinji Mikami’s full approval, his help here is limited because he’s obligated to GhostWire right now but part of how this project even came to be was through his decision and talking with Capcom.
Elsewhere, he suggested that gamers let Capcom know if they want a Resident Evil CODE: Veronica remake, insisting they do listen to feedback more than some might thing.
Most of us were probably expecting this to happen instead of Resident Evil 4 at this point, and I’m slightly baffled by the decision to remake 4 instead.
As previously reported, Capcom is readying Resident Evil 8 for a release on PS4 and PS5 in 2021, and is set to be a massive departure for the long-running franchise. Resident Evil 4 remake is still at least two years away, and AestheticGamer says it may yet be delayed.
Resident Evil 4 was released for the GameCube in early 2005 and was later ported to PlayStation 2, Wii, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and mobile.
