“No Plans” for Resident Evil Code: Veronica Remake, Says Capcom Producer

Speaking about future remake plans after the release of the Resident Evil 4 remake, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi stated that there are currently no plans to develop a Resident Evil Code: Veronica remake, but left the possibility of one open in the future.

The Resident Evil Showcase yesterday showcased new gameplay from the Resident Evil 4 remake and unveiled a number of updates to the combat mechanics of the original title. While the last few years have seen a number of Resident Evil games remade for current-gen platforms and graphics, Resident Evil Code: Veronica has not received that treatment despite being a mainline series title.

As a fan remake of the title nears release later this year, Hirabayashi, who has been involved with the series since Resident Evil 2, confirmed to Noisy Pixel that there are no concrete plans for an official remake of Code: Veronica, and that his focus is on making the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake “the best experience for fans.” However, he did not entirely rule out such a remake in the future, saying that “if the opportunity comes, maybe.”

Since Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and now Resident Evil 4 have all been successfully remade for current-gen consoles, it’s not unreasonable to assume that remakes of other series titles are on the cards (the writer would particularly like a remake of Resident Evil 0).

For now, fans will have to sate themselves with the Resident Evil 4 remake coming out March 23, 2023 for PC, PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series X|S. Pre-orders for the game are open now, with the Standard, Deluxe and Collector’s Editions all bearing separate pre-order bonuses.
