Journalist Imran Khan reports a number of information related to Resident Evil 4 Remake, which come from sources close to the project, whose identities, of course, have not been revealed.
First of all, Khan says the project is indeed in development right now, with an announcement expected in 2022 if plans don’t change at the last minute. Resident Evil 4 Remake developed in M-twoa team of ex-employees capcom and PlatinumGameswho have been working on Resident Evil 3 Remake. The project was led by Tatsuya Minami, a friend of Shinji Mikami (the game’s original director, now head of Tango Gameworks). Mikami was offered to return to work on a remake, but he refused.
After a negative reaction to Resident Evil 3 Remake, capcom took the project and handed it over to the creators Resident Evil 2 Remake. Now M-two only keeps things running, but what they originally created is still in use.
capcom does not intend to do an identical remake scene by scene. One of the changes is the arrival time of the main character, Leon S. Kennedy: now the arrival in the village will take place at night, like a good part of the game. The idea is to make the game more scary. In the storyline Resident Evil 4 there will also be changes: supporting characters will play a larger and more important role in the script, and Ada Wong’s script will be much longer in length. It is assumed that the remake will be much scarier than the game released on gamecubeand even more similar to the early version of the game, also known as “Resident Evil 3.5”.
As always, remember that these are rumors, not official information, and some details may change prior to announcement or release.
