While it has yet to be officially announced, credible sources have said that Capcom is actively developing a Resident Evil 4 remake, which is supposedly aiming for a 2022 release date.
Many fans reacted to this news with elation, but many others are upset that Capcom has apparently decided to pursue a Resident Evil 4 remake instead of remaking one of its other, older games. This includes Dino Crisis fans, who went to social media to vent their frustrations.
The fact that Capcom has seemingly decided to remake Resident Evil 4 over producing a Dino Crisis remake has especially upset fans, as Resident Evil 4 is readily available on modern platforms.
In fact, Capcom has re-released Resident Evil 4 on virtually every video game platform imaginable, from iOS mobile devices to the Nintendo Switch. Not only that, but Resident Evil 4 is one of the most critically-acclaimed games of all time, and it’s hard for fans to see how it could possibly be improved by a remake.
Also Wanted Code Veronica More
The Resident Evil 4 remake has upset more than just Dino Crisis fans, though. Others are irritated that Capcom is not doing a Code: Veronica remake, as Code: Veronica is the next step in the Resident Evil series story after Resident Evil 3, and the game could arguably benefit much more from a remake than RE4.
However, just because Capcom is going with a Resident Evil 4 remake first, assuming the reports are accurate, it doesn’t mean that other remakes aren’t in the cards as well. Capcom indicated years ago that remakes and remasters would be a central part of its business strategy moving forward.
So what do you all think about this guys?
