Resident Evil 4 Remake May Not Reveal in 2020

Capcom reportedly will not reveal Resident Evil 4 Remake this year, according to reliable franchise leaker.

In a growing trend of modern-day remake of classic titles these days, developer/publisher Capcom has seen immense success with recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake in 2019 and Resident Evil 3 Remake in earlier this year.

According to an early report, Capcom has greenlit development for Resident Evil 4 Remake at new Osaka-based developer studio M-Two but will not be revealed this year given their current focus on 2021 release of Resident Evil: Village.

Reputed industry leaker AestheticGamer1 has recently revealed on social media that RE4 Remake will not be ready for a showcase this year since its development phase is still on early stage with a set release window of 2022.

Capcom is said to have planned for a larger production unit for upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake than they had in past for Resident Evil 2 and taken support from developers who worked on both Devil May Cry 5 and RE2 Remake.

AestheticGamer1 has stated on Twitter lately that RE4 most probably won't be ready to reveal this year.

AestheticGamer1 has become a very reliable source on Resident Evil series of games these days with his series of authentic leaks on Resident Evil 8 regarding Chris Redfield redesign, enemy types, release window, story setting and much more.

He reaffirms that Capcom is on board with RE4 and is already working on it but those who are expecting a reveal will be disappointed. Capcom is not ready to officially confirm Resident Evil 4 yet until they release Resident Evil: Village in 2021.

Resident Evil 4 originally debuted on Nintendo GameCube back in 2005 as an action-horror game and met with worldwide acclaim as a staple to its genre before Capcom ported it to almost every existing gaming console system ever.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will reportedly have some gameplay changes and added story elements. Also, there could be a number of surprises that Capcom would want to hold off until a certain time prior to its rumored 2022 launch window.

Resident Evil 4 Remake to Feature Expanded Story

Capcom is likely to change Resident Evil 4 gameplay and feature an "expanded" story, according to leaker AestheticGamer.

Back in April 2020, reports of developer/publisher Capcom working on Resident Evil 4 Remake with a planned release window of 2022 came out shortly after release of highly-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Latest information from reputed leaker AestheticGamer1 reveals that upcoming RE4 Remake can make some changes to original gameplay and may even feature expanded story elements, adding lore for 2005 action-horror release.

When asked by a Twitter user about new changes in Resident Evil 4 gameplay and premise lately, AestheticGamer1 reveals that Capcom would much likely to expand upon its original story to an extent and revamp gameplay.

When RE4 came out on Nintendo GameCube, it single-handedly revolutionized entire Resident Evil franchise forever. Capcom needs to update the game and move away from RE2 and RE3 Remake to impress new generation of players.

AestheticGamer1 also hints at some possible major change in Resident Evil 4 Remake in another thread.

While citing it's too early at this point to talk about anything before an official announcement, he randomly points out that Capcom is greatly expanding story and one of them revolves around iconic chainsaw-wielding villager Dr. Salvador.

Salvador was initially introduced in Resident Evil 4 as Chainsaw Man, a Plaga infected Ganado enemy type wearing a burlap potato sack that would chop off heads of any stranger on sight with a revving chainsaw and won't go down easily.

During a recent interview in May 2020, Resident Evil 3 Remake game director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals that Capcom changed Nemesis to make a connection with Resident Evil 4, low-key confirming that a remake being in development.

Aside from attacking targets, Nemesis is given abilities to create a new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head". You can take what AestheticGamer1 said with some level of certainty, given his past record on Resident Evil: Village leaks so far.

In recent remake of Resident Evil 3, a popular character was completely left out from ending sequence. Capcom didn't offer multiple endings like 1999 classic and even removed popular Mercenaries mode, which was disappointing.

Capcom will soon be venturing into another modern-day remake project with Resident Evil 4 Remake for the third time, following blockbuster success of Resident Evil 2 (2019) and its slightly less appreciated sequel Resident Evil 3 (2020).

Resident Evil 8: Village Will Release for Next-Gen Only

Capcom announced Resident Evil 8: Village at PS5 reveal event for Windows PC and next-gen consoles only.

Although there has been no confirmation from developer/publisher Capcom about upcoming survival horror title Resident Evil 8 since release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, known insiders leaked many interesting details online.

With recent showcase of PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, an official announcement was made by Capcom for Resident Evil VIII: Village, which is currently set to arrive for next-gen consoles as a follow-up sequel to Resident Evil 7.

From its debut trailer and official press release, it seems that Resident Evil Village will only be launched on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, despite an early retailer leak of PlayStation 4 version suggested cross-gen release.

Capcom originally started development of RE: Village as a cross-generation game but due to unintended circumstances, they recently had to shift focus on next-generation consoles only, according to industry leaker AestheticGamer.

In recent Twitter thread, AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem revealed reasons for RE8 becoming a next-gen title.



RELATED: Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly in Works

Even four months ago, Capcom planned to release Resident Evil 8 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms but that idea had to abandon midway because of longer loading times of last-gen consoles and a major graphical overhaul.

To get over these setbacks, Capcom simply stopped working on PS4 and Xbox versions so RE8 will have almost no loading time at all. Also, they can push for better graphics quality in next-gen without being stuck to last-gen system.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

RE8: Village brings back Ethan Winters from RE7, who has resumed a normal life in peace with his wife Mia. Then one day BSAA agent Chris Redfield suddenly showed up at his doorstep to cause a tragic event, throwing his life into turmoil.

There were rumors of Resident Evil 8 being the darkest among whole RE series, featuring scary enemy designs and a redesigned Chris Redfield will be serving as an antagonist, many of which has already been confirmed in recent trailer.

Those who have missed a first-look at Resident Evil VIII: Village can take a look at its official trailer below.

Village has a lot of loading zones and travelling though locations to focus on exploration, which was limited by its last-gen versions. Resident Evil 8 is playable now but Capcom is working on a graphical overhaul, starting in late 2019.

Given how Resident Evil VIII: Village continues to pursue first-person horror, there might be a version to support PSVR in future eventually. Capcom may also end up announcing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port for RE8 on a later date.

Ikumi Nakamura became a very influential and popular figure among gaming industry following her appearance on E3 2019 event presenting upcoming action-adventure game GhostWire: Tokyo, a project that she isn't working on anymore.

An accidental leaked listing on German retailer website GamesOnly reveals PS4 version of Resident Evil 8: Village.

While there is no official word developer/publisher Capcom on a follow-up sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard yet, there have been strong rumors for past few years of Resident Evil 8 being in active development for next-gen consoles.

In a now-removed accidental product listing on German retailer website GamesOnly, current-gen version of upcoming Resident Evil 8: Village has been leaked online recently, shortly ahead of a rescheduled PlayStation 5 reveal event.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Won't Have Any DLC

Game producer Peter Fabiano confirms no future add-ons or DLC updates for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Though a series of successful modern-day remakes, developer/publisher Capcom has managed to reignite hype and receive acclaim for Resident Evil survivor horror series, which is concluded with recent release of Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite its bright sides, a faction of players believed RE3 Remake is relatively short for its AAA-price tag and hoping for some future DLC, a notion that has been shot down by game producer Peter Fabiano who called it a finished project.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

In an interview with Silicon Era, producer Peter Fabiano was asked whether they are working on any tweaks or updates for RE3 and his straight answer of Resident Evil 3 being a finished product means there will be no future DLC.

Most people were just happy to see Jill Valentine return and everything else Capcom offered in RE3, except for old players who thought this definitive remake lacks content in terms of Clock Tower, Grave Digger and more that were cut out.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

Resident Evil 3 Remake story campaign mode was very short and there was not enough to explore. RE3 came bundled with Resident Evil: Resistance for sure but these two halves still didn't offer a complete experience for many.

Majority of old-school fans weren't actually excited to find out that RE3 Remake will not feature multiple endings and iconic Mercenaries mode from 1999 original game, which was replaced by asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resistance.

RELATED: Capcom May be Teasing Next Resident Evil Game for 2021

Fabiano leaves no vagueness in his answer when he shut down any possibility of add-ons or DLC for Resident Evil 3. However, Capcom can always change their plan in future and eventually come up with something new to please their fans.

Also, his comment did not mean that Resident Evil: Resistance will not be receiving further DLC updates since it's an ongoing game. Capcom recently added new mastermind character Nicholai Ginovaef from RE3 for Resistance last month.

RELATED: Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly in Works

A large part of Resident Evil community who purchased RE3 Remake on launch don't really care for Resistance and therefore, lack of support for core game is heavily disappointing considering its full price and overwhelming fan reception.

With no hopes for DLC content to improve story mode of Resident Evil 3 Remake, players can now resort to finding more hidden Easter Eggs, do speedrunning, trying different difficulty settings and modding to squeeze out more from it.

Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

Capcom is likely to release Resident Evil 8 as a cross-gen title next year, according to leaker AestheticGamer.

Within months after developer/publisher Capcom successfully launching 2017 survival horror game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, rumors of development for its follow-up sequel title started surfacing online from various sources.

Capcom recently revealed their financial report for current fiscal year, which indicates that Resident Evil 8 will be a cross-gen game awaiting on early 2021, a possibility that is further bolstered by a renowned industry leaker.

Although no official confirmation has been given by Capcom about potential protagonist, enemy details or even a release window for Resident Evil 8 yet, some details were leaked earlier including a rumored title, "Village".

AestheticGamer discusses cross-gen status of RE8 and a new Silent Hill game in a recent string of Tweets.

While discussing for a potential date for new Silent Hill game reveal on August, AestheticGamer also talked about Resident Evil 8 being a cross-gen title currently awaiting showcase on June, most probably on PlayStation 5 reveal event.

Capcom previously revealed Resident Evil 3 Remake on a State of Play broadcast last year before getting leaked on PlayStation Network and therefore, Resident Evil 8 getting revealed on June 4 at a Sony event actually makes sense.

Dusk Golem claims to have received this information from people who has ties to studios that works closely with both Resident Evil 8 and Silent Hill projects but regardless of trusted source, people should take this with a grain of salt.

Capcom is apparently preparing to launch Resident Evil 8 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X next year. There have been reports of Resident Evil 4 Remake being developed by M-Two studio for 2022 release.

Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

Resident Evil 3 Remake director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals Capcom made changes to Nemesis to relate directly with Resident Evil 4.

Seeing an immense success of Resident Evil 2 Remake last year, developer/publisher Capcom inevitably released its long-anticipated survival horror sequel Resident Evil 3 Remake earlier, which was also lauded by fans and critics.

In a recent interview of developers talking about including Nemesis in Resident Evil: Resistance, game director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals how development team made changes to RE3 to make a connection to Resident Evil 4 or its remake.

Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

RELATED: Capcom Surveys if Fans Want More Resident Evil Remake

Sakata talks about a couple of aspects in RE3 Remake that are intentionally redesigned to align perfectly with later series installments. Some of these changes directly link creation of Nemesis to roots of RE3 follow-up title Resident Evil 4.

Instead of changing Nemesis's origin story, Capcom actually expanded on already established lore of its parasite. In original Resident Evil 3, Nemy was a clone of T-002 Tyrant type bonded with NE-α parasite, which explains his tentacles.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 to Have Most Disturbing Enemy Designs in Series

Though Nemesis was just a prototype B.O.W. and not a complete model, he had far greater strength than Mr. X. Moreover, he could use his tentacles to grab targets from distance or even create a new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head".

Just like Ganado enemies from RE4 that are humans infected by Las Plagas parasite, he could simply infect zombies with his tentacles. Umbrella Corporation created NE-α to imitate Plagas, thus differentiating Nemesis from other Tyrants.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Remake Player Beats Game on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

Capcom maintained a similar aesthetic between Ganados and Nemesis-infected zombies for fans to easily connect the dots. Their ultimate goal was to properly fit him into Resident Evil franchise while paving a way for RE4 narrative.

As until now, Resident Evil 4 had no apparent connection to prior games except for return of Leon S. Kennedy and remained a standalone plot. Nemesis being created by a parasite similar to Las Plagas provides RE4 storyline a new depth.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Title Leaked, Chris Redfield Returns

Umbrella was simply able to find such an advanced parasite for Nemesis program from their research lab in Europe. It makes perfect sense as they took inspiration from Las Plagas, a parasitic organism that originated from Spain.

Even before Umbrella started working on Nemesis, their first parasite based bio-weapon was Lisa Trevor from Spencer Mansion. She successfully bonded to it as a host and research data on her eventually helped create Nemesis-T Type.

Resident Evil series has been officially announced to be the most successful series in Capcom history by selling over 98 million units worldwide so far, which is 30 million units more than their second biggest franchise, Monster Hunter.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

In one of their growth strategies, Capcom expressed intent of releasing multiple major new titles. It is also pointed out on page 9 of the presentation that there will be 13 new titles (SKU), which most probably stands for stock keeping unit.

With latest release of Resident Evil 3 Remake last month, 3 SKU is already wrapped as it was launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, which leaves 10 more slots left for upcoming future titles that are yet to be revealed.

Given how next Resident Evil mainline entry is apparently falling into same early year release window like recent remakes from last two years, Capcom may end up launching Resident Evil 8 for PC and next-gen consoles within March 2021.

However, there is another rumor of a Resident Evil 4 Remake being in works by a new studio, M-Two with a set release window of 2022. If that is true, Capcom is almost certainly aiming for releasing Resident Evil titles on annual basis.

Although fans are asking for a Dino Crisis remake, developer/publisher Capcom is seemingly busy reimagining classic survival horror franchise of Resident Evil and their most recent releases from the series being Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite continuous pleading to Capcom for reviving one of their beloved licenses, modder community on PC platform has taken it up on themselves to bring back nostalgia of rampaging dinosaurs in a latest RE3 mod titled "Dino Evil 3".

Available at Nexus Mods, players can download this fan mod by maliwei777 that is still in early testing phase and might have some issues. Hopefully, those minor issues of Version 0.1 will eventually be worked out and updated very soon.

Dino Crisis plays around some elements of survival horror and is helmed by Resident Evil series creator Shinji Mikami. However, instead of being forced to fend off against horde of zombies players are primarily chased by dinosaurs.

Playing as former S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine wearing a skin of U.S. Special Forces operative Regina surely is exciting but having every zombies of Raccoon City swapped with a deadly T-Rex is stuff of nightmare for sure.

What it seems that these dinosaur enemies don't have much movements or actions at this point as they need to do more work but you can get a pretty good idea of how well a potential Dino Crisis remake may look like in RE Engine.

Capcom has handed over this project to M-Two, a new studio founded by former Platinum Games CEO Tatsuya Minami and this Osaka-based developer was apparently prepping to handle RE4 Remake project from 2018.

Internal dev teams and third-party studios will lend support as they did for Resident Evil 3 Remake. Original game director Shinji Mikami was approached to helm RE4 Remake, which he denied but gave advice on its direction.

Though M-Two contributed to development of RE3 Remake but their primary focus has always been Resident Evil 4 since 2018. However, there is no word on whether any original Resident Evil 4 team members will be involved at all.

2020 remake of Resident Evil 3 already added new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head" that are a variant of regular undead created by Nemesis, as a nod to Las Plagas parasite infused Ganado enemies from RE4, which followed a religious cult.

Making debut in 2005 for GameCube console, Resident Evil 4 is re-released and remastered by Capcom for almost every other console system and gaming platforms out there but it never received a full remake treatment until now.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is reportedly in development now and given its scheduled launch window of 2022, Capcom would likely to release it for current-gen consoles as well as next-gen hardware like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Capcom Surveys if Fans Want More Resident Evil Remake

Days after Resident Evil 3 Remake release, Capcom asks fans if they want more remake or new Resident Evil games.

Only days after launching anticipated remake of 1999 survivor horror classic Resident Evil 3,  developer/publisher Capcom were quick to surveying fans if they would like to get more Resident Evil Remake games for near future.

Although this survey doesn't shed light on which title Capcom is considering to remake next, there are more options than remakes. They are also interested to know if players are interested to purchase games from mainline series next.

A large part of fan-community is eager to see a remake of Resident Evil Code: Veronica, which is a follow up to Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 story wise; spawning a narrative for another new conspiracy of evil Umbrella Corporation.

Shortly after officially revealing Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 event, game director Kazunori Kadoi has even teased the idea of remaking Resident Evil: HD Remaster, which itself is a remake of original Resident Evil title of 1996.

Capcom has already re-released ports of Resident Evil 4 over almost every available modern gaming platform so far with added improvements and yet, there are many who believe that RE4 should be remade to meet true perfection.

There are no hints of either they will start pursuing another reimagining project or release a numbered Resident Evil game though. Code: Veronica is a two-decade old game now, which has massive popularity and demand for among fans.

One particular answer choice "I will purchase the game even if I had to buy a new console" suggests that Capcom is trying to decide if a new Resident Evil game for next-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would be a good idea.

For participating in latest online survey, Capcom is offering you some bonus wallpapers of Resident Evil 3 Remake. Though their inquiry is primarily focused on Asian-based countries, players from other countries can take part as well.

Resident Evil 8 Title Leaked, Chris Redfield Returns

Recent leaks on Resident Evil 8 reveal its possible title, settings and return of series protagonist Chris Redfield.

Earlier this week, long-anticipated remake of 1999 survival horror classic Resident Evil 3 just came out on April 3, 2020 for all major gaming platforms, following success of critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 2 Remake from last year.

Now that these two projects are finally done, developer/publisher Capcom is finally free to focus on mainline Resident Evil games and reportedly, their upcoming release is going to be Resident Evil 8, which now has its title leaked.

Through an anonymous tip received by Biohazard Declassified website, Capcom has a clever subtitle for next RE game. Currently named "Resident Evil 8: Village", this working title allows for highlighting "VIII" as Roman numeral of 8.

Previously, reputed leaker AestheticGamer has leaked "clever title" part alongside a small village setting for RE8. His claim of featuring a witch-like shadowy enemy with supernatural powers also matches recent leaked report.


Though there is not much detail of her origin but she will be able to control insects, much like old lady Marguerite Baker. When defeated, this witch will simply disappear and would often try to haunt player character with a maniacal laugh.

When series protagonist Chris Redfield showed up during end of Resident Evil 7 and it's Not a Hero DLC in a redesigned look, not everyone was too excited to see him and now, Capcom is giving him another makeover for his next outing.


Latest leak states that Chris is going to play a very important role in RE8 and will be presented in a negative light. Redfield will show up in a flashback scene with RE7 lead character Ethan and Mia Winters as well as their apparent baby.

What connection does their baby has to the game's overall narrative is yet to be revealed later. Chris will end up shooting one of them upon breaking into their house and his victim is most likely to be that child, which doesn't seem too heroic.


Ethan himself will be a bit more fleshed out since he is into this biohazard mess for second time after taking down Eveline almost on his own. Entirety of the game taking place in a European setting is similar to early rumors from last year.

Moreover, there are mentions of including hallucinations elements that will make it hard for your character to focus and concept of a hook man enemy, something that was a part of Resident Evil 3.5 but never made it to Resident Evil 4.


It is also claimed by source that developers have been busy testing with an UI similar to RE7 and one that is more like RE4. Nevertheless, upcoming RE8 is going to be in first-person perspective and not over-the-shoulder shooter in third-person.

Capcom is said to be planning to release Resident Evil 8 in Q1 of 2021 and an official reveal may take place very soon, maybe later this month. However, these schedules can change anytime due to recent global situation of Coronavirus outbreak.


AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem revealed more notes over development of Resident Evil 8 on last week.


According to his recent leaks, RE8 started development as Resident Evil: Revelations 3 that was built upon framework of RE7 and Capcom made it into a mainline title impressed by its early version and seeing positive internal feedback.

Resident Evil 8 following a path laid down by its predecessor title may excite some fans because it was a big departure from previous RE games but those who are in love with Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remakes will be slightly disappointed.
