Some details from the Unannounced Resident Evil4 Remake
Officially, the remake of Resident Evil4 is not yet announced. If your sole criteria for believing information about a game is confirmed, then I will stop you immediately: This report contains no. This is partly because the game has yet to be confirmed. Fanbyte sources all information — which hopefully are both reliable and accurate — have provided the following information. Things can change in mid-development, and data can become outdated for different people. However, the following report is correct to our knowledge. These verifications include multiple verifications, but there is no official sanction from Capcom.
Although it is not yet confirmed, rumours have been swirling about a remake of Resident Evil 4. This game has been considered to be the greatest video game ever made. According to the story, Capcom was encouraged by the promising milestones in Resident Evil 2 during its development and began work on a match remake of Resident Evil4 as the project started its denouement. This would have been over 15 years ago by the time it was released. According to our sources, this rumour is true. According to our sources, the game is currently in development and will be released this year. If everything goes according to plan, that is.
M-Two was the original developer of the title. This studio consisted mostly of ex-Capcom developers and, most importantly, developers who were also working on Resident Evil 3: Remake. Capcom believed that by granting the project greenlight, they would be able to entice Shinji Miami, who is now the Tango Gameworks’ original director, to work on the title with Tatsuya Minami. This was part of the reason for the name “M-Two”. Mikami was intrigued by the proposal but felt that Tango would collapse without him. He eventually declined. After receiving mixed responses to Resident Evil 3Remake, Capcom shifted the project internally and assigned Resident Evil 2Remake‘s project leaders. M-Two was moved to a support studio, but their original work is still being used.
Capcom has decided that Resident Evil4 is not a complete remake. Its original title was lauded. The original title had Leon S. Kennedy, a rookie cop who became a secret agent and gunning down the bad guys in 24 hours. This remake changes that timeline. The famous village introduction scene takes place in Resident Evil 4: Remake. The rest of the game is also at night.
This time change is not arbitrary. Capcom is trying to make the remake more frightening by drawing inspiration from the Resident Evil4 demos. This footage was shown in GameCube preview reels. It featured Leon wandering around a castle, being possessed by black smoke and fighting other ghostly manifestations. Some of this material made it into the original game in different ways. The majority of this stuff was cut from the original game, and direct comparisons were made during the remake development.
There are some changes planned to the story. For example, side characters will be given bigger roles and screen time.
Capcom intends to expand the game’s features. One of the main focus areas is Assignment Ada. This campaign featured Leon’s rival, sometimes lover, and spy extraordinaire Ada Wong. Although the GameCube version did not have much story, it allowed players to explore the game’s areas and collect Las Plagas samples for Albert Wesker. This bonus has been largely considered non-canon and does not fit with the game’s timeline. A campaign called Separate ways was created for the PlayStation 2 and all subsequent versions, except Resident Evil VR. This campaign had a lot more plot and revealed what Ada was doing throughout the game. It was okay, but it lacked the same panache and polish as the main game.
M-Two is specifically looking to expand on Assignment Ada and Separate ways. This will allow them to combine each piece into one package, making it a more polished and fluid companion piece. Although not all sources could confirm whether it was part of the main game or as DLC, most assured it was.
Leaks that claimed to have shown Wesker’s redesign of Resident Evil4 Remake are not correct. These leaks were apparently from an earlier Resident Evil project that has been cancelled.
Capcom hopes to announce Resident Evil 4: Remake in early 2022. The company has been silent for a long time, with several planned announcements being delayed due to marketing and development reasons. That timeframe could be pushed back, especially as the company has seen modest success with shorter announcement-to-release cycles with the Resident Evil series as of late. Game development is fluid. Nothing should be considered locked in or guaranteed before the game’s release.
