Rumor: Resident Evil 4 remake overhauled as Capcom Development Division 1 takes over

It was like FF7 Remake being taken away from Cyberconnect2.

Rumor: Resident Evil 4 remake overhauled as Capcom Development Division 1 takes over

M-Two's role reportedly significantly reduced.



The Resident Evil 4 remake first rumored to be in production at M-Two back in April 2020 is now being led by Capcom’s Consumer Games Development Division 1, according to a VGC report citing people with knowledge of the project.

The remake has reportedly been in development since 2018 at M-Two, which partly contributed to the development of the Resident Evil 3 remake, but now it is said that following a key project review in late 2020, Capcom decided that its internal Consumer Games Development Division 1 would take over as lead developer on the project, significantly reducing M-Two’s role.

According to the report, the change is believed to be a result of M-Two’s desire to faithfully reproduce the format of the original Resident Evil 4, while Capcom’s production team prefers a direction where it is inspired by the original game, but introduces its own unique take on features, story elements, and environments in a similar way that the Resident Evil 2 remake reimagined Mr. X.

VGC’s sources claim that the Resident Evil 4 remake would be partially rebooted under its new lead developer, which could delay its release as far back as 2023. The remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 were said to have experienced similar overhauls.

When contacted by VGC, Capcom declined to comment.

The one game that doesn't need a remake other than a few adjustments to controls and upgrade the graphics.

Maybe it's just me but I had so much fun playing the game I barely noticed the story shortcoming. The part on the lake was particularly cool.

Don't care, don't want. If they don't remake code veronica i am not even glancing in the direction of this one.

If i'm completely honest, i never liked RE4. I remember the lake part and remember getting frustrated at all the traps and dumb ashley, plus the 'murica storyline of rescuing the presidents daughter and the zombies speaking spanish and i being able to understand them. Actually, looking at it now, it comes across racist.
The whole thing repeled me agressively. It was the only regular RE i never finished alongside 7 and soon 8.

I don’t think rescuing the President’s daughter in Spain hence Spanish zombies is racist at all. The problem with it was that the story was ridiculous. The gameplay was fantastic.
