Capcom has reportedly greenlit full production of Resident Evil 4 Remake. This is according to a report from Andy Robinson of VGC.
Robinson has stated that M-Two would be put in charge of developing the remake. If true, it follows up an earlier report from Robinson late last month about M-Two’s role in developing future Resident Evil remakes.
“It’s understood that the remake has the blessing of original game director Shinji Mikami, who officially declined an approach to lead the project himself but has provided informal advice on its direction,” Robinson reports.
Furthermore, the remake was reportedly planned as far back as 2018. The original Resident Evil 4 released back in 2005 for the GameCube with multiple re-releases throughout three generations of consoles. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news!
