A remake of Resident Evil 4 is currently in development with a planned release window for 2022, according to a report from VGC.
The reported remake is being developed by M-Two, an Osaka-based studio founded by Tatsuya Minami, the former head of PlatinumGames.
The team has been working on the project since 2018 – although like Resident Evil 3 Remake, it is likely other teams under Capcom’s umbrella will lend support.
Resident Evil 4’s original game director Shinji Mikami declined to lead the remake himself, but has given it his blessing and has offered some advice on the direction of the upcoming release.
Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 Remake launched just last month, albeit to middling reviews. Running on Capcom’s RE engine, the same engine behind Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5, the Resi 3 remake featured visual, audio and narrative upgrades, but was ultimately a pretty short game. Many could zip through it in just a few hours.
VG247 calls the game “a step backwards” in its 3-star review.”Rather than a few intricate but large spaces, there are more areas with less intricacy,” writes our Kirk. “You’re often following a linear path to the next cutscene, of which there are many.”
Last week Capcom released a survey asking fans for feed back on the future of the franchise, specifically whether they would be interested in purchasing future Resident Evil remakes or original sequels.
