The directors of Resident Evil 4 Remake were actually hesitant to make the project at first since the original version was a “legend”
The original Resident Evil 4 was a masterpiece and it gained a big following when it got released. It was hard to follow that up as it felt perfect already. So when a remake was announced, everyone was ecstatic and scared of its development. CAPCOM was then fearful that it would live up to the expectations of the fans.
Directors Yasuhiro Ampo and Kazunori Kadoi shared some details with Game Informer about the remake’s development. They doubted if they actually wanted to make it at first. They were hesitant because it would be difficult to make a successful remake knowing that if they would make mistakes, they would suffer a backlash from the fans.
It seems the team’s gamble paid off after announcing it and revealing gameplay. Everyone is now excited about the game’s release and wants to get their hands on it as soon as possible. Aside from the big improvements, its release time does not have any competition.
Resident Evil 4 Remake launches on March 24, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
