For several months there have been persistent rumors that Capcom would be working on one of its cult games Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Most recently, the project made headlines earlier this year when it was said that Capcom had pulled the original development team and delayed the release of the remake. A few hours ago, a new alleged leak appeared on Reddit that could reveal fresh information about Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Said entry, which is currently being checked by the moderators of the platform, now claims that the title, unlike last time like Resident Evil Village, should only be developed for the new consoles. In addition, it would be possible that Resident Evil 4 Remake could appear exclusively for the PlayStation 5.
Furthermore, the game should offer a mix of third-person and first-person passages, a semi-open world, and new content that should include links to various games in the franchise.
The well-known Resident Evil leaker Dusk Golem, who was correct several times in the past with his contributions to the brand, has already commented on the reports and has doubts about its authenticity. In this regard, he explains that the original remake of RE4 was “not exactly like the original” before the company restarted development. Nevertheless, Capcom would take the fan criticism of Resident Evil 3 Remake to heart and incorporate it into the work on the new edition of RE4.
Capcom is also working on exclusive deals, but in his opinion, he is doubtful that this particular game will appear exclusively for the PS5. “Unless Sony was offering one Hell of compensation for timed exclusivity, they’re aware RE:4 is a big project.” Regarding the platforms for which the game is in development, he could not say anything, but he added that the leak in this regard could be true.
He concluded by saying that he was pretty sure that Capcom would continue to target a release of Resident Evil 4 Remake in 2023. However, in his opinion, the company is also willing to delay the project if necessary. Since these are rumors and Capcom has not yet officially commented on a remake of Resident Evil 4, you should of course take this news with due precaution.
(1/5) People have been asking me this morning about RE:4 Remake Reddit rumor. I'll tackle this point by point.
1. Of course Capcom is aware of leaks, they do investigations on them, the big hack was a big problem for them partially due to private personal information. It was bad.
