Capcom has revised its plans to remake Resident Evil 4

During the development of Capcom's Resident Evil 4 remake, according to people familiar with the project, there was a major change of leadership due to disagreements over direction.

Sources told VGC that the new studio M-Two has significantly reduced its role in the unannounced project, and the main studio Resident Evil Capcom Division 1 has been brought in to lead the new direction.

The controversy that led to the downsizing of M-Two's role is believed to stem from the studio's desire to adhere to the original Resident Evil 4 template, in part influenced by backlash over the Resident Evil 3 remake, which did not include significant chunks of the original game, much to the dismay of fans.

However, the Capcom production group is said to prefer a direction in which the RE4 remake will be inspired by the original, but with its own unique take on features, story elements and environments, not necessarily limited to the original's plan as in Resident Evil 2.

Sources said that the development of the Resident Evil 4 Remake will now be partially rebooted, which may cause its release to be delayed by a full year until 2023. Such a change of direction is not uncommon at Capcom, sources say, and both Resident Evil 2 and 3 are said to have undergone similar changes during their development.
