Capcom Has No Plans for A Resident Evil Code Veronica Remake For Now

"If the opportunity comes, maybe.”

The Resident Evil series has been undergoing a renaissance for the past few years, with the series making an extremely powerful comeback in the form of 2017’s Resident Evil 7 followed by the universally praised Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil Village. 

Major Takeaways:

  • Currently no plans for Resident Evil Code Veronica Remake.
  • Code Veronica Remake could happen given the opportunity.

Capcom has slowly been releasing remakes of prior Resident Evil titles, with a remaster of the remake of the first Resident Evil game (Yes, I know how it sounds) released in 2015 and the latest re-release being Resident Evil 3 Remake in 2020. 

Since then, Resident Evil fans have been wondering whether Code Veronica will be getting a similar remake as Resident Evil 2 in the near future. In fact, a Code Veronica remake is one of the most highly-demanded titles that fans want to see remade. 

It seems Capcom has certainly taken note of these demands. In an interview with Noisy Pixel, Resident Evil 4 Remake Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi was asked if these remakes would continue past Resident Evil 4 and if he would like to work on a remake for Code Veronica.

Hirabayashi-san responded that while there are no definitive plans to develop a remake for Resident Evil Code Veronica, it might happen if the “opportunity comes”.

In another recent news, Capcom has finally shown off the long-anticipated remake of Resident Evil 4 in a 5-minute-long gameplay trailer alongside another 2-minute-long story trailer. The gameplay trailer shows many of the iconic locations from the original game in brand-new next-gen fidelity. 

Resident Evil 4 Remake has been touted as a reimagining of the original game that aims to please the fans and introduce new players to a beloved classic. 

“This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernising the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard,”

Resident Evil 4 Remake will release on 24th March 2023 and is currently available to pre-order for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam.
