Resident Evil 5 Remake Development Reportedly Unaffected By False Rumors Of Racial Concerns

The development of Capcom’s rumored Resident Evil 5 remake appears to be unaffected by false rumors of racial concern, based on the latest report.

Dusk Golem aka (AestheticGamer), who is known for his insight on games that are in development at Capcom, took to Twitter/X to debunk recent rumors about the development of Resident Evil 5 remake being shelved by Capcom USA over racial concerns. The rumor had claimed that Capcom USA had bigger input in the development of the remake, and that the source code from the studio’s offices was lost in the tsunami.

Golem claimed that he doesn’t believe the rumor in big part since he knows for a “fact” that several parts of it are wrong. He clarified that the claims regarding Capcom losing the source code for the old Resident Evil titles and the company being in the impact zone of the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 are both absolutely false, as are other things mentioned in the rumor.

A few months ago, Golem had mentioned that he had no frame of reference for when Resident Evil 9 will be announced. He said that it could happen this summer, or it could be later. According to him, a couple years ago, the goal at Capcom was to reveal the game in 2024 and aim for a 2025 release. However, he has been hearing over the last few months that Resident Evil 9 my have been internally delayed for one reason or another.

Golem pointed out that internal delays aren’t unusual for the Resident Evil series, and that several titles have more often than not hit some “rocky point” and got delayed. It had been suggested to him that another Resident Evil title may end up being announced and released before Resident Evil IX. Though, he cautioned that this not something he had concrete information on, and that he planned on getting more details in the near future.
