Reports emerged yesterday that Capcom are working on a Resident Evil 4 remake, with M-Two, the studio also involved in Resident Evil 3’s development, acting as lead developer on the project. Now, prominent Resident Evil leaker AestheticGamer (a.k.a. Dusk Golem) has taken to Twitter to drop some more new details on the title.

According to Dusk Golem, M-Two were originally set up specifically for the purpose of Resident Evil 4’s development, and their work on RE3 – on which, according to him, they assisted lead developers Red Works – was to be a practice run of sorts, a stepping stone to their next project. Work on RE4 supposedly began all the way back in 2018, and M-Two have been listening to and taking feedback for the recently released Resident Evil 3 into account. Additionally, Capcom Division 1 – specifically, the teams that worked on Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 – are also assisting with development.

Dusk Golem says that by the time the game is out, it will have been in development for over four years. Its reveal, meanwhile, a year or a year and a half away, with Dusk Golem suggesting that for the foreseeable future, the rumoured Resident Evil 8 is going to get Capcom’s undivided attention. He also reiterates that the project was greenlit by Capcom only after it got Shinji Mikami’s approval, though his own involvement in development is limited, owing to his commitments to Tango Gameworks’ upcoming GhostWire: Tokyo.

Meanwhile, Capcom also recently announced that Resident Evil 3 surpassed 2 million units in worldwide shipments and digital sales within 5 days of release.
