Resident Evil 4 Remake is in development and will arrive in 2022, says portal
The current remakes launched by Capcom have yielded good results for the company. First was the reimagination of Resident Evil 2, which was so well received that it even won nominations at The Game Awards 2019; right after that it was Resident Evil 3, this was controversial and divided the opinions of the public a lot – if you want to draw your own conclusions, I recommend reading the analysis here from Voxel.
Today, out of the blue, VGC (Video Game Chronicles), the American portal, stated based on several sources that Capcom is in the early stages of developing Resident Evil 4 Remake. The production of the game would be in full swing and being produced by M-Two (studio that worked on RE3 Remake composed by former developers of Platinum Games and Capcom), with a forecast to arrive in 2022.
RE3 Remake has some references to the original RE4, like the parasitic zombies created by Nemesis and some situations where QTE’s (Quick Time Event) are needed. Was Capcom already setting the stage with these additions? It is also worth mentioning that, according to the portal sources, a newcomer to the company who would be leading the new project.
VGC also comments that Shinji Mikami, considered by many to be the father of the franchise, was also asked to work on the project, and despite having to decline the invitation because he was working on GhostWire: Tokyo (Bethesda’s new IP), the producer would be making some guesses outside.
Remembering that Resident Evil 8 is expected to be released next year according to Dusk Golem, an insider well known by the franchise community.
The above revelations are only rumors and should be treated as such. However, taking into account the relevance of the portal for the industry, the origin of this information is not to be doubted.
