Troubled multiplayer spin-off Resident Evil RE: Verse might be in line for an announcement soon, it seems.

The game popped up over the weekend on ratings board PEGI with a new entry for the Google Stadia version, thanks to Gematsu. Though the game’s PS4, Xbox One and PC versions were rated a year ago, the Stadia version was only rated this past Saturday.

Resident Evil RE: Verse was first announced all the way back in January 2021. Capcom originally intended the spin-off  to release alongside Resident Evil: Village. The premise pits teams of classic Resi characters up against each other and a host of creatures. Downed players would also transform into Bioweapons based on the series’ bosses.

However, cracks set in following feedback from the game’s rocky beta testing period. This feedback caused Capcom to delay the game’s release first into the summer, and then out of 2021 completely. The last we heard was a delay into an unspecified time in 2022 last July.

Ironically enough, this week marks one entire year since the launch of Resident Evil Village. Has the spinoff had a major overhaul in those twelve months since its companion game launched? Could the shooter be part of that Resident Evil Village DLC we’ve been promised but still not seen yet?

These are all questions Capcom have to answer and more. Hopefully we’ll get some answers on the whereabouts of Resident Evil RE: Verse soon. We’ll let you know should official word turn up. In the meantime, here’s Josh’s thoughts on the game that started the entire series off.
