It seems as though every other day there's another dose of Resident Evil news. Hot on the tail of Resident Evil 8's big leak last week, it's now been revealed from multiple sources that Capcom is working on a remake of Resident Evil 4.
The news shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as Capcom has been openly gauging interest in more remakes in surveys sent to players, but this title in particular getting the reimagining treatment isn't as obvious as it seems.
For one, the game has been ported to pretty much every console under the sun already, something which can't be said for the original Resi 2 and 3. Likewise, the fourth title already has the over-the-shoulder perspective and general framing that the recent remakes updated the classical, fixed-camera instalments with, meaning it's less in "need" of an update.
It seems as though Capcom is taking the project seriously though, and according to regular Resi leaker AestheticGamer (aka Dusk Golem), the title has been in development since 2018 at M-Two studios, which was built specifically for this game. That team also provided support on Resident Evil 3 Remake as something of a trial run, and have been listening to feedback to address with the next instalment.
Apparently an official reveal is still a ways off yet though, with the game itself not dropping until 2022. Until then, Capcom is fully focused on Resi 8, and won't want to muddy the waters with fans.
