If you love the Resident Evil survival horror series and want to dive into the successful previous branches again, there’s clearly good news: Capcom seems to have firmly planned more remakes of older titles.
With Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 4, Capcom recently re-released three classics from previous years from 2019 and released remakes – and these were well received. Reviews were largely good and players thanked Capcom for purchasing so many titles.
Another remake has not been officially announced, but the company clearly planned to release a remake – given its success, perhaps not entirely surprising.
As IGN now reports, Capcom recently appeared at a PlayStation event in Japan, where Yasuhiro Anpo, the director of the Resident Evil 4 remake, was also in attendance, and told the assembled team that Capcom has plans for the future. Stairway to developing more Resident Evil remakes. However, he did not go into further details, which is why we cannot tell you at this stage what the next game in the series will be, nor approximately when it should be released.
However, many fans want a new version of Resident Evil: Code Veronica. Parts of the community were actually disappointed when Capcom announced Resident Evil 4 instead of this remake. The game – although not a numbered main game – is also very popular because it contains important story developments.
However, it’s probably more likely that Capcom could tackle Resident Evil 5 next – or even update the original Resident Evil with the latest technology. Basically, as mentioned, this is still just speculation at the moment.
One thing is certain: the Resident Evil 4 remake will receive a big update next week on December 8th, because then the long-awaited virtual reality mode will come into play.
We will also have to wait longer for the next remake, because a reliable insider recently confirmed that there will be no such remake in 2024. Therefore the earliest possible release of a remake will only be in 2025.
