Not The Master Of Unlocking Multi-Player
Fans of Resident Evil looking to get their multi-player battle on will have to wait a bit longer. Capcom revealed today that Resident Evil Re:Verse, set to release this month prior to this announcement, is being pushed all the way to 2022.
Re:Verse has has a series of setbacks in recent months. Originally set to release alongside Resident Evil Village (Our Review), it was delayed shortly before that title’s launch. Just last month, however, Capcom revealed during E3 that the game would come out in July. It felt like a short term issue. That only weeks ago they thought the game would be ready in less than a month but now they don’t expect it for at least six months doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. No specific date beyond 2022 was provided.
Fans who purchased Resident Evil Village will still get a free copy of Re:Verse. Codes provided with the game can be redeemed now to make sure you don’t lose them before the multiplayer game even releases.
If a game isn’t ready, pushing it back is often the right move. When we’re dealing with a multiplayer mode that few asked for and which many of us were already skeptical of however, it is hard to feel good about moves like this. Hopefully when Resident Evil Re:Verse finally makes its debut the extra time will lead to a game worth our time. You can check out a trailer for Re:Verse below.
