Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Re:Verse, the multiplayer spinoff title included with Resident Evil Village, has been delayed into 2022. The game has been delayed once already, and was due to arrive on PS4, PC, and Xbox One this month.
There’s no new date for Resident Evil Re:Verse yet, but the company has said it will share more details at a later date. Here’s the full statement via Twitter:
Resident Evil Re:Verse takes place across a variety of locations plucked from the history of the series, with players going head-to-head in PvP matches as iconic characters including Leon, Claire, Jill, Chris, and more.
This is Capcom’s latest attempt to shoehorn multiplayer into the Resident Evil franchise, something which the company has had pretty terrible results with over the years. Resident Evil Resistance was the most recent example of this, which died a slow death following its release alongside Resident Evil 3 Remake in April 2020.
If Resident Evil Re:Verse is in that bad of shape that it’s being pushed back six months, then I wouldn’t be surprised at this point if the whole thing is cancelled before the year’s out.
Looking ahead, Capcom is heavily rumored to be working on a Resident Evil 4 remake, which is supposedly coming out in 2022.
