Originally intended to release alongside Resident Evil Village, the multiplayer centric Resident Evil Re:Verse was recently pushed back until this month. However, it's now been confirmed that it won't be releasing anytime soon, as Capcom has announced a delay of the game until 2022.
The reason for the delay is stated to be "so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience". As a result, it's now releasing in 2022, but there are no details as to when. The team has promised to share updated information as soon as they know.
Additionally, Resident Evil Village physical owners have been reminded to redeem their download code in the box and keep track of the game to avoid the risk of missing out.
The beta that launched earlier this year was plagued with server issues and a generally poor reception from fans. This is what prompted the initial delay until July, but it's unclear as to why it now needs longer.
We're not entirely sure there will be an audience for this game when it drops next year anyway. Even when it was originally intended to launch alongside Resident Evil Village, the community was fairly lukewarm on it. That being said, you never know what the extra work might add to it, so perhaps there's some hope for Resident Evil Re:Verse after all.
