Resident Evil 4 Remake news

49 posts in this topic

We already knew the game was in development due to the Capcom hack last year, but now we got some actual news about the game itself.

Quote

The much rumoured remake of Resident Evil 4 is reportedly seeing a 'partial reboot' at Capcom, and a change in development leadership, after disagreements over its direction.

 

VGC reports that, per sources close to the project, core Resident Evil studio Capcom Division 1 has taken the lead on the project, with original developer M-Two seeing its role reduced. The changes could apparently lead to a 2023 release date.

 

The report explains that, following a project review, M-Two was seen to be too faithful to the original game, with Capcom preferring that the remake takes inspiration from Resident Evil 4, but introduces new elements and features.

 

The latter approach was taken in both the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, with varying levels of fan response. M-Two is said to have wanted to stick to the Resi 4 formula due to backlash against Resident Evil 3's changes, which saw portions of the original game entirely removed.

 

The Resident Evil 4 remake has been rumoured for some time, with this year's huge leaks of apparent internal Capcom documents pointing to a Q4 2022 release date.

 

It feels like a likely prospect, not least after the new Resident Evil 3 included a specific reference to the sequel. Resi 4's director, Shinji Mikami told IGN that, "As long as [a remake] turns out good I have no issues with it."

So the first real news about the game is that it's already in development hell. Ok. 1f914.png

 

Not great news, but the other two remakes went through the same thing. 😅

Ew. I hope they don't rip content out like Resident Evil 3's remake, but I loved RE2R, so.

so chances are 50/50 ahahaha 

I really want this game to succeed! Leon is one of my favorite characters of all time and, though I enjoyed REmake 3, it could have been much better and  would hate to see REmake 4 cut like that

With Re4 being my personal fav game till this date (I've made a habit of running through the game every couple of months for nearly a decade lmao) I kinda hope that they change it up a little bit. Don't get me wrong i hope they don't cut Any areas or enemies from the game but i reckon they can expand so much on the original. Personally i hope they flush out Leon's interactions with the other characters and bring them to life a bit more Especially Mendez from the village portion. Also Luis i want more Luis Please Capcom. Anyhow I have faith that this will turn out nice Especially if they give this another 2 years or so in the works. Just don't wont this to get rushed out cause i would say that this RE is close to a far amount of people. But if the Dev 1 team is gonna be taking the reigns on this im happy with that

I hope they knock it out of the park this time, but remaking perfection is a tall order. I'm keeping my expectations low. I think they should've focused on Code: Veronica instead, that game could only benefit from a complete re-imagining.

Agreed! I always saw it in a similar light to FFX, brilliant games held back by voice acting hahaha I think they could really change that with a remake! along with a few other things

So it would be a completely different game just like RE2 and RE3 only borrowing a few elements from the original Resident Evil 4. While RE4 was never my favorite and I still have trouble seeing it as a Resident Evil game I have a bad feeling about this. This is almost Star Wars all over again but this fan-base has been split for a lot longer.

I hanging out what Capcom does with RE4 Remake, but to change topic is Capcom ever going to do a remake of Dino Crisis & Dino Crisis 2 ?

Long overdue.

It's quite obvious what the disagreements are about. Capcom wants to redo certain elements of RE4 to allow it to better fit with the other Remakes. Umbrella it will turn out was not destroyed where it was previously in canon. Saddler will now be an Umbrella scientist/executive and the final area will of course be, NEST3. 

 

Remember this post when it happens.

Image a console that has no Resident Evil 4 on it. Anyway, not a big  fan of 4, so don't mind what ever changes they will made. Hope it will be the same long and keep all gorgeous locations within.

RE4 brought back a 3rd time? To me it’s a good game, but why a 3rd time when they could’ve remade Dino Crisis? Or bring back X-Men Vs Street Fighter, or Marvel Super Heroes Vs Street Fighter, or whatever popular game that they’re vastly overlooking.

Just do what they did with Resident Evil 2 and we're set. Keep the same core gameplay, overhaul graphics, and then add a couple of new things.
