Once again, we are about to dive into the “claims sources” area. So, remember to take everything here with a grain of salt. As often happens in the gaming industry, there are sometimes projects that, although not officially confirmed, are definitely in development somewhere. One of these projects is a remake of Resident Evil 4. After success Resident Evil 2 Remake (and to a lesser extent, the Resident Evil 3 Remake) It’d be crazy to think Capcom won’t be returning to a golden goose in the end.
Reports claimed that the project has been in operation since 2018. It appears that the project was led by M-Two, led by Tatsuya Minami, the former president of Platinum Games. The studio had a big role in developing Resident Evil 3 Remake, Minami was an executive producer on the project himself. However, it now appears, again according to unnamed sources inside of Capcom, that M-Two’s involvement in Resident Evil 4 The remake has been greatly reduced.
Report from Chronicle Video Games He claims that, after some criticism against Resident Evil 3 Remake, M-Two wanted to do a remake more faithful than the Resident Evil 4. Despite how you feel about it Resident Evil 3 A remake, one way or another, took some serious departure from the original game. However, the top companies at Capcom did not seem to like this idea. Capcom claims to want to use the original Resident Evil 4 As a model more, go in different directions with certain elements – similar to Mr. X and his expanded role in Re 2.
From one village to another
There are advantages to both sides of these design philosophies, of course. On the one hand, you want to remain loyal to the original, but you don’t want to be loyal. However, change can be good as well. Those changes mentioned above include Resident Evil 2 Great remake turned out. Either way, M-Two’s involvement in the project appears to have decreased significantly due to this disagreement, and the game is now partially restarted. It is said that the majority of the development will now be handled by Capcom Division 1. This is the in-house studio that handles development for the mainline vampire Games as well Devil May Cry.
According to VGC sources, the restructuring may have prompted the launch of the new version from 2022 to 2023. I suspect it will be some time before we hear anything “official” in Resident Evil 4 Remake, as far as actual confirmation by Capcom itself anyway. Meanwhile, you can check out what Section 1 does Resident Evil Village. And I’m sure it’s no coincidence, it shares many similarities Resident Evil 4.
