Capcom have announced the release date of Resident Evil Re:Verse has been delayed yet again, this time to 2022.
The game was intended as a free multiplayer game for those who purchase Resident Evil Village (launched May 7th). The open beta for Re:Verse was met with issues with matchmaking on launch, causing it to be temporarily suspended.
Even so, the Mostly Negative reviews on Steam note the game being poor quality overall. Many even wished that Capcom had not created the game, with the extra budget then going into Village.
The situation can be compared to Resident Evil 3 (2020), and Resident Evil Resistance; a stand-alone multiplayer game that was free with the former. Our own review noted how it would quickly become passed-over, and likely made Resident Evil 3 a worse game because of its existence. Capcom later announced the game was delayed to Summer 2021.
Now, Capcom have announced yet another delay; to 2022. This is “so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.” More launch details will be shared at a later date. The official website still notes the game will be free for those who purchased Resident Evil Re:Verse.
Resident Evil Re:Verse launches 2022 on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will also be free for those who buy Resident Evil Village.
You can find the rundown (via the official website) below.
