Resident Evil 4 just won’t die. The beloved action horror Capcom classic has either been ported or remastered to nearly every console since debuting on the GameCube in 2005, and now Capcom is reportedly procuring a reimagining of the title. According to a report by Video Games Chronical, a remake of Resident Evil 4 is slated for a 2022 release and is being helmed by Japanese studio M-Two which has been developing the game since 2018. M-Two is run by former PlatinumGames head Tatsuya Minami and consists of many former developers from PlatinumGames and Capcom. The news follows the success of 2019’s terrific Resident Evil 2 Remake and the recently released Resident Evil 3.
I personally view the remake as a blessing. While Resident Evil 4 is one of the greatest games of its genre and era, the title’s controls haven’t aged all that well and would benefit from the remake treatment. Fingers crossed that we’ll see more information about the Resident Evil 4 remake soon.
