Capcom has announced it’s delaying the release of multiplayer companion game Resident Evil Re:Verse all the way into 2022.
In a tweet from the game’s official account, the studio said: “The previously announced July 2021 launch of Resident Evil Re:Verse is being moved to 2022 so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience. We will share updated launch details at a later time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
The PvP spinoff title was first revealed at the beginning of this year and features characters from across the 25th year history of the series in a PvPvE shooter. Though it’s always been positioned as a free download for anyone who bought Resident Evil Village, the game still hadn’t officially seen the light of day outside of a beta some two months following that game’s launch.
Capcom did hold several rounds of public beta testing a few months ago, but clarified that the game wouldn’t release until Summer back in April before this latest delay. The studio advises those with a code in a physical copy of Resident Evil Village should either hang on to said code or redeem it to your account to ensure access whenever Resident Evil Re:Verse does go live.
For players who purchased a physical version of Resident Evil Village, we recommend that you keep track of the included Resident Evil Re:Verse download code or add it to your account now so that you are ready to play when the game launches next year.
