The multiplayer spin-off game, Resident Evil Re:Verse, has been delayed into 2022, as announced by Capcom today.
Capcom has announced today via the officially Resident Evil Twitter account that Resident Evil Re:Verse has been delayed. The game will no longer be releasing in 2021 as originally planned, but will now launch sometime in 2022. The reason given by Capcom is that the team will “continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.”
The full statement is here:
“The previously announced July 2021 launch of Resident Evil Re:Verse is being moved to 2022 so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience. We will share updated launch details at a later time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Capcom also had some advice for players with a download code for Resident Evil Re:Verse.
“For players who purchased a physical version of Resident Evil Village, we recommend that you keep track of the included Resident Evil Re:Verse download code or add it to your account now so that you are ready to play when the game launches next year.”
Resident Evil Re:Verse is a spin-off multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe. In the game, players fight against each other in four to six-person matches where they can play as characters from the long-running series and use a variety of bioweapons to emerge victorious.
Fan reception to Re:Verse has been lukewarm compared to the full-fat Resident Evil Village. Some fans are even poking Capcom on Twitter with suggestions of cancelling Re:Verse and just releasing some DLC for Village instead.
