Following the recent remakes of RE2 and RE3, it seems that Capcom is now currently working on a Resident Evil 4, according to various reports that is.
One such report is by Video Games Chronicle (VGC). According to their report, sources have confirmed to VGC a Resident Evil 4 Remake is now currently in “full production,” with a targeted release date of 2022. The report also stated that the game is being made by the studio M-Two in Osaka, a new game studio founded by Tatsuya Minami, formerly of Platinum Games.
With the two recent Resident Evil remakes being third-person over-the-shoulder action games made in the RE Engine, we expect the Resident Evil 4 remake to also be made using the same engine and employ similar gameplay. Though given the game’s target of a 2022 release, the RE4 remake will most likely be a PS5/Xbox Series X title.
A remake of RE4 is not exactly a surprise given the success of the previous two Resident Evil remakes. Though it remains to be seen how much of the game will change; after all, tank controls aside, RE4 has aged quite well and is still very much playable today (for us at least).
The original Resident Evil 4 was first released on the GameCube, with a PS2 release following shortly after. The game has also been released in a wide variety of platforms, including PC, the Wii, PS4, Xbox one, Switch, and even on mobile.
