Resident Evil 4 Remake reportedly underway... that interest ya?

Following its re-imaginings of Resident Evil 2 and 3, multiple development sources have told VGC that the Resident Evil 4 remake has now entered full production with an estimated release window in 2022.

 

Development is being led by Osaka-based M-Two, the new studio founded by former PlatinumGames head Tatsuya Minami, which has been preparing for the project since 2018.

However, similar to how 2020’s Resident Evil 3 was led by company Red Works, Capcom’s internal teams and other external studios are likely to lend support.

It’s understood that the remake has the blessing of original game director Shinji Mikami, who officially declined an approach to lead the project himself but has provided informal advice on its direction.

 

The studio helming the remake has been in operation since 2018 and is comprised of many former Platinum and Capcom employees.

Led by a new team that contributed to the significantly downsized Resident Evil 3.

 

Would've preferred CV, Zero or a whole new game in the Remake style. Both Resi 2 and 3 Remakes suffered from obvious development issues and seemed oddly rushed.

I'd welcome the news they were returning to finish either as definitive editions next gen.

 

This means we have... RE8 in 2021. RE4R in 2022? Feels like to do this properly the release date will slip by a year or two.

If they can fix the utter shite controls that would be awesome. It plays horribly these days*

 

* Not interested in the 'Its supposed to be like that to build tension' argument. Other games have used modern controls and managed to be tense.

Inevitable, but if it's of the standard of the RE2Make it'll still be a GOTY contender. I replayed the PS4 port last year, and although the controls did feel horrible to begin with, once you get over that it's still a brilliant game by any measure. There's not an ounce of fat on it.

It was better on the Wii with pointy and waggle controls, so any remake will probably be worse than that version. 
 

That being said, any update needs better inventory management and to allow movement while aiming. The original game feels archaic these days with those limitations.

I disagree. It still plays perfectly.

How is it possible for someone to be so wrong? I played through it a month ago and it was still bloody brilliant, no issues with the controls at all. Have you tried sucking less?

 

I don't think they should touch this. RE2 2 was my most anticipated game but they kinda shit the bed on one of the most important aspects of the game, the A B playthrough. If they were going to be so half arsed about it they should have probably just made it so you switched between Leon and Claire throughout the campaign to experience the few differing story beats.

As long as they don't downsize it like they did with RE3, we should be golden.

But with a release planned for 2022, I think they'll be going all out on this one.

 

I suppose we can count on a CV remake being off the cards then.

 

Oh and

"Your right hand comes off?"

should definitely be in it.

It felt like a lot of people really wanted a Resi 2 remake and to a lesser extent Resi 3. I don't think I've seen anyone asking for a Resi 4 remake. With the number of times it's been re-released already, there's less nostalgia to tap into.

 

The perspective and action is similar enough to the current crop that it'll be more directly comparable. And with the size of the original, it feels like a big gamble. Although for once, I'd actually welcome some trimming.

RE4 will make way more money.

 

I fear you’re right. I suspect Capcom feel they can pull it off due to the goodwill earned from the RE2 remake. Of course, that goodwill took a knock with RE3’s slender new campaign, and will have largely evaporated by 2022, but never mind! Full speed ahead!
