Work on a remake of Resident Evil 4 started two years ago, according to the latest rumours, and will be the biggest remake project so far.
Despite a less rapturous reception for the Resident Evil 3 remake, compared to that for Resident Evil 2, Capcom has allegedly already started work on the next one… and it’s going to be Resident Evil 4.
That may seem obvious on the face of it, but many had hoped that Resident Evil Code: Veronica, which advanced the plot and gameplay mechanics much more than the original Resident Evil 3, or Resident Evil 1 or 0 might be next.
Resident Evil 4 is certainly a much better known entry but it’s also a much more difficult prospect, given it’s widely regarded as one of the best video games ever and much about what made it so unique risks being lost if the controls are updated to be the same as the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes.
These design problems will apparently fall to new studio M-Two, which is headed by former PlatinumGames president Tatsuya Minami, and while technically independent was founded with financial help from Capcom.
M-Two’s first project was the Resident Evil 3 remake, where they were one of several contributing studios, but they will take the lead on Resident Evil 4, according to website VGC.
Resident Evil 8 hasn’t been officially announced by Capcom either, but current rumours claim it will be released in spring 2021 – which suggests a reveal sometime in the next few months.
