Since remakes of Resident Evil 2, 3 and 4 are already in the works, some players are hoping for a remake of Code Veronica. However, Capcom claims that it has no plans to remake the Dreamcast game.
In 2000, Sega released Code Veronica for Dreamcast. It was ported to the PS2 and GameCube and then released in HD for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Two Redfield siblings, Chris from the first game and Claire from the second, play pivotal roles in the game. Many players enjoyed the game but pointed out its dated features with each new remaster, making it an ideal candidate for a complete overhaul.
Resident Evil 4 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi was recently interviewed, and one of the questions posed to him was whether or not he would be interested in working on a remake of Resident Evil Code Veronica after the release of the Resident Evil 4 Remake.
In response, Hirabayashi stated that he is now concentrating on the development of the Resident Evil 4 Remake. He went on to say that making a Resident Evil: Code Veronica remake isn’t in the works at the moment, but that “if the opportunity comes, maybe.”
This is the time of year for remasters of many video games, such as Alan Wake, Silent Hill 2, and the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake from Capcom. Although the latter studio has a number of unfinished works in progress, Resident Evil Code: Veronica is not one of them.
Many of us hoped that Capcom would take a break from the main narrative and turn towards other entries in the survival horror brand in light of the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake, set to release on March 24, 2023. Since remakes of the previous four games in the series already exist, and since Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 don’t appear to be in need of one any time soon, why bother?
