A new report points out that M-Two, the studio that contributed to the remake of Resident Evil 3, is no longer responsible for the remake of Resident Evil 4, and the game may be postponed to 2023.
According to the report on VGC, some differences between Capcom and M-Two caused the latter to Resident Evil 4 Remake Capcom’s Level 1 department took over the development work, thereby “significantly reducing” this cost.
The report pointed out that the disagreement stems from M-Two’s desire to be faithful to the original “Resident Evil 4”, partly due to RE3’s rejection of its revised content, because it excludes “an important part of the original PlayStation game.”
The report stated that Capcom instead hopes that the game will be more or less inspired by the original game and take a different attitude towards various elements that are not part of the original game, “similar to the use of Mr. X in “Resident Evil 2″.”
It is now said that the game is being restarted, which may delay the re-production of RE4 until 2023.
Since 2018, a remake of Resident Evil 4 has been in development, and according to early reports, it was originally scheduled for release in 2022.
After the report broke, it was revealed that M-Two, an Osaka studio founded by Tatsuya Minami, the former head of PlatinumGames, will be responsible for the development.
Shinji Miki, the original game director of “Resident Evil 4”, refused to host the remake himself, but gave the remake a blessing and provided some suggestions on the upcoming version.
