Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly Getting Announced In 2022, Will Be Spookier Than Original
Capcom is planning to announce the Resident Evil 4 Remake in 2022 according to a new report. This version will be scarier than the original release.
Fanbyte has shared an update on the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake. Citing their sources, they have some new information regarding this rumored Remake which still doesn’t have an official announcement so far.
According to their sources, the game is currently being planned to get an announcement in 2022. That is if things go according to plan. It was originally being developed by M-Two, who have worked on the Resident Evil 3 Remake, but they are now acting as a support studio with the development being taken charge internally by the team behind the Resident Evil 2 Remake.
This won’t be a remake that will parallel the original with better visuals. Capcom is looking into making changes like expanding the scope of the game, fleshing out the side characters, and adjusting the tone. They want to make the game spookier than the original version taking inspiration from some of the scrapped prototypes for the game that features things like the Hookman, Hallucinations, and even Ghosts. They are also setting a majority of the game during the nighttime in contrast to the original release.
Other changes that have been mentioned in this new rumor suggest that the side story, Assignment Ada and Separate Ways, that featured Ada in the lead role, will be fleshed out for the sequel. The plans for this expansion sound like it could be a post-launch DLC, and offer meatier gameplay and story than the original release. It could also be offered in the main game but nothing is confirmed for now.
Resident Evil 4 Remake hasn’t received an official announcement so far, so take this rumor with a grain of salt as usual. In the meanwhile, you can play the Resident Evil 4 HD Project on PC.
