Resident Evil Code Veronica & Resident Evil Fan Remake Canceled By Capcom
The Resident Evil Code Veronica and Resident Evil remake fan projects have officially been canceled by Capcom.
The developers behind the Resident Evil Code Veronica and Resident Evil remake fan projects have revealed on Twitter that both have been canceled due to Capcom. The team apologized to fans for the inconvenience and disappointment. Detailed information in this regard is available on the developer discord.
The developer of the Resident Evil Code Veronica and Resident Evil remake fan projects also claimed that Capcom had known about the development of both projects from the very beginning. According to them, if they had let these projects last more than a year and a half, it’s kind of checking and ensuring the interest of fans around Resident Evil Code Veronica. Yet, the developer claims that Capcom currently has no “official” intention of pursing a remake of the original.
It’s quite unusual of Capcom to cancel the fan projects this late into development if they were indeed aware of their existence from the start. If the publisher has no intention of working on a remake for Resident Evil Code Veronica and the original Resident Evil, these fan projects would’ve been the closest thing to such a possibility. A lot of hard work has undoubtedly been put into both fan projects, and to have all of it taken away isn’t sure to be disheartening and disappointing to both the developer and fans alike.
Previously, it was revealed that Capcom may be planning to release a brand new remake of the very first Resident Evil game, based on a new listing. According to the listing, a new version of the first Resident Evil is in development, suggesting that it may be a full fledged remake. Resident Evil had previously been given the remastered treatment, with HD textures and other graphical improvements. However, it wasn’t a remake in the same vein as ones that Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 have received.
