On the heels of Resident Evil 3 Remake a rumor has sprouted up that Capcom has already begun work on another remake. This time, the remake will be of Resident Evil 4. Said rumor comes to us from VGC who cites multiple unnamed sources that the remake is in full production with a release window of 2022. These sources also shared that development will be handled by M-Two, a new studio founded by former Platinum Games head Tatsuya Minami. In addition, some internal Capcom teams will contribute.

Resident Evil 4 originally released in January 2005. It follows Resident Evil 2 protagonist Leon S. Kennedy’s mission to rescue the President’s daughter from a cult that has been infected by a mind-controlling parasite. The game was critically acclaimed and went on to win multiple awards. Since its’ release for the GameCube, it has seen a port or remasters for the PC, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch.

The Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake were brought back to life through the RE Engine. Not to mention, it brought fans back to the beloved survival horror franchise. Why would Capcom not want to continue forward and update Resident Evil 4 as well? So, this begs the question: why go with Resident Evil 4 first? Both Resident Evil: Zero and Resident Evil: Code Veronica were released before it. They would benefit far more with an update. However, this is still a rumor. It’s possible that all three will eventually get a remake in the future.
