In recent years, Capcom has not been good at keeping its projects a secret. We knew, for example, the theme of Resident Evil 8: Village several months before its announcement, among other things. We also knew several things about the RE2 and RE3 remakes in advance. Now, the source behind the clues about the development of the latter returns to the load with news about a hypothetical remake of Resident Evil 4 that had already been talked about last year.
More specifically, Video Games Chronicle collects that, according to its anonymous sources, the M-Two team (mainly responsible for the latest remakes) has been relegated to the background in the development of the Resident Evil 4 remake: the first division. From Capcom, the team behind the main installments and Devil May Cry games would have taken control of the project.
The report adds that the reason behind this maneuver could be an artistic disagreement: M-Two would like to work with the framework of the original game, while Capcom thinks more of a game inspired by RE4 but with its own way of understanding mechanics, elements of history and settings. From the way it is told, it seems that those in charge point to a remake similar to Final Fantasy VII in terms of the balance between respect for the original work and new contributions.
“[Our] sources said that the Resident Evil 4 remake would be partially rebooted with this new mandate, which would lead to a delay in its release until 2023, ” they conclude. Of course, at 3DJuegos we encourage you to take all this information with a grain of salt: although it is undeniable that the filter’s history is clean, hitting one issue does not mean that all the others have the same success.
