Capcom Overhauls Plans for Resident Evil 4 Remake, According to Rumor - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 February 2021 / 1,920 Views
The Resident Evil 4 remake has been rumored to be in development since 2018 at M-Two, however, that has since changed and the development on the game is now being led by Capcom’s Consumer Games Development Division 1. This is according to sources who spoke with VideoGamesChronicle.
M-Two contributed to the development of the Resident Evil 3 remake, since a key project review in late 2020, the developer's role on the Resident Evil 4 remake has been reduced, according to the sources familiar with the project.
The report says the change in lead developer was due to M-Two wanting to faithfully reproduce the format of the original Resident Evil 4, while Capcom wanted to go in a direction that takes inspiration from the original, but introduces new features, story elements, and environments. This is similar to how Mr. X was reimagined in the Resident Evil 2 remake.
The sources say the Resident Evil 4 remake will now be partially rebooted under the new lead developer, which means the game might not release now until 2023.
