Is The Resident Evil 4 Remake Really Under Construction?

Posted on

While E3 is coming to an end this year, unfortunately for the fans of Resident Evil 4, there have been rumors for a long time that according to these rumors, a remake title is being made for this game, which was unveiled at E3 2021. Now it must be said that this lack of show can mean a lot to the project.

Capcom’s show at E3 2021 has finally taken place, and unfortunately fans have not seen any show of Resident Evil remakes at the event. As far as the Resident Evil franchise is concerned, Capcom only discussed the DLC for Resident Evil Village and the release date of the online multiplayer game Resident Evil Re: Verse.

However, the absence of the Resident Evil 4 remake, which has long been rumored, has come as no surprise, especially since Capcom did not mention anything specific to the series when introducing its plans for E3. Of course, many fans hoped that at the end of the ceremony, Capcom, in a move by Steve Jobs, would surprise them by saying the famous phrase One More Thing, or at least point to the approval of the remake development process, which unfortunately never happened. Here we look at the possible consequences of the absence of Resident Evil 4 Remix at E3 2021.

The wait for Resident Evil 4 Remix may be longer

Ever since the successful Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes were released, fans of the popular Survival-style franchise have been eagerly anticipating that a fourth version of Resident Evil will be remade in the future. While Capcom has not yet officially confirmed the next remake, rumors have already circulated that the next remake will be related to the successful and legendary Resident Evil 4 version.

Several well-known insiders, such as Dusk Golem, who had previously leaked accurate information about Resident Evil Village, claimed that the Resident Evil 4 remake has been in development since 2018 and that the team it is working on is larger than the development team. The remake of Resident Evil 2 and 3 games.

Unfortunately, the absence of Resident Evil Remake at E3 2021 indicates that the game is probably still in its infancy. Especially since last month Capcom focused its energy on the successful Resident Evil Village launch. Given this, it is likely that the remake of Resident Evil 4 will not be released until at least 2022. Of course, there is still a glimmer of hope that the game will be officially confirmed this year during the official announcements at TGS.

Delay due to RE9 or RE: Outrage?

Another reason that could explain the absence of the Resident Evil 4 remake at E3 2021 is that the remastered version may have been discontinued in favor of other projects during the Resident Evil series. It is worth noting that during Capcom’s massive leak of information last year, another story spin-off of the series is being made, believing that it is probably the third installment of the Revelations sub-series called Resident Evil: Outrage.

According to the information leaked from this game, the game is scheduled to be released later this year. However, this spin-off was also unveiled at E3 2021, which could mean that the game is not ready for an official release. This will delay the introduction of Resident Evil 4 Remix to focus on Outrage.

While Capcom is not known for releasing the original games from the Resident Evil series in the short term, there is also the possibility that Resident Evil 4 remix will be postponed in favor of Resident Evil 9. It should be noted that the liqueurs also claim that Resident Evil 9 is the last episode in the new Resident Evil trilogy that started with 7. Of course, considering the mysterious ending of the eighth version of the game and its final sequence, this issue is not far from expectation. 

The successful launch of the Resident Evil Village game and its good sales may be Capcom’s top priority for developing and delivering the next part of the game, RE9, as soon as possible, rather than working on a remastered version of Resident Evil 4.
