The Resident Evil 4 remake is reportedly in full production, with a release date set for 2022.
According to VGC, the game is being developed by M-Two, the studio founded by Tatsuya Minami, former PlatinumGames head. The company has been around since 2018 and currently employs a lot of former Platinum and Capcom developers.
VGS’s various sources suggest that M-Two participated in the development of the Resident Evil 3 remake. Similarly, other Capcom’s internal teams and external studios will likely to be involved in the reimagining of the fourth installment. Overall, a bigger team will work on the Resident Evil 4 remake than on the previous remakes.
Resident Evil 4 came out in 2005 to become Capcom’s highest rated game ever, according to Metacritic. Its lifetime sales have surpassed 7.5 million copies across various platforms.
In the meantime, Capcom is working on Resident Evil 8, the series’ second first-person entry, which is due out in 2021.
