There have been rumors since April 2020 that we will get a remake of Resident Evil 4. Capcom has not yet confirmed this. Fans had hoped that it would be announced at the showcase a few days ago, but that didn't happen. And that supposedly has a very specific reason.
The RE4 remake is still a long time coming
Apparently Capcom is not satisfied with what Studio M-Two has done with the remake of Resident Evil 4 so far. M-Two was most recently involved in the remake of Resident Evil 3. Allegedly, M-Two is said to have worked on a game experience that basically mirrored the original 1: 1. Capcom, however, would like something different. Apparently the remake should only be based on RE4 but also bring independent story elements and new features with it. An example is how the remake of Resident Evil 2 dealt with Mr. X.
Therefore, a team from Capcom took over the project itself and M-Two only works too. The remake is said to have experienced a partial reboot, which means that the release is postponed to at least 2023. According to insiders, this approach is not at all unusual for Capcom, as they already proceeded similarly with the remakes of RE2 and RE3. Capcom has not yet issued a statement on the situation – after all, the remake of Resident Evil 4 has not even been officially announced.
So it could be that with the remake of RE4 we get a game that plays differently than the original and whose story also plays out a little differently. The next step is the release of Resident Evil Village.
