Resident Evil Re:Verse Delayed to Summer 2021

Capcom delays Resident Evil Re:Verse to summer following a series of matchmaking problems.

Ethan Winters might have it tough with Vampire Mommies and werewolves galore, but it's nothing compared to the hardships Resident Evil Re:Verse is experiencing. Shortly after Capcom pulled the game's second beta, the developer now announced Resident Evil Re:Verse is delayed until summer 2021.

Originally, Capcom planned to release it as a pack-in game with Resident Evil Village, similar to Resident Evil 3 remake's Resistance pack-in.

It's a decision Capcom made quietly, first through email announcements to Resident Evil ambassadors and then in a no-fanfare change made to the Re:Verse official site.

The developer didn't give a reason yet, but considering multiplayer matchmaking caused the beta to crash earlier in April, it's probably safe to guess that's at the root of the problem.

When it does release, Resident Evil Re:Verse will be the series' first battle royale game, pitting heroes against each other and reviving them as Nemesis, Jack Baker, and other iconic villains should they fall.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
