Resident Evil, one of the oldest franchises in the gaming industry. Developed by Capcom, the game was then adapted to the big screen when the first Resident Evil film came out. Since then we’ve seen 6 films and a bunch of games with Resident Evil 3 Remake coming out this year. It was always the storyline, be it the Apocolypse or the horrors of Raccoon City. So much so that the company felt like it was appropriate to recreate those games, games which originally came out way ahead of their time and the machines of that time could not do them justice. Now though, things are different, as we saw with Resident Evil 3 Remake.

According to Nibel’s tweet, he quotes an article from videogamechronical.com, which talks about the future of the franchise. According to the article, they are in full throttle to work on a remake of Resident Evil 4. They have started production and believe that the game could hit the market by 2022.
Heading the project would be M-Two, the same company that was involved in the development of Resident Evil 3’s Remake. Obviously Capcom would be joining the party as well. Though the original director would not be directly involved, he would be providing on the direction of the entire project. A lot of people that would join the project, were a part of Capcom during the original project development.
Meanwhile, it is still a little unclear how Capcom is deciding to release its projects. The article suggests that Resident Evil 8 would be coming out in 2021, for the upcoming next-generation consoles.
