Capcom’s supposed 25th year anniversary game for horror franchise Resident Evil is suddenly postponed to a 2022 release.

The multiplayer Resident Evil game, Resident Evil Re:Verse was announced last January and was slated for a July release. The mechanics of the game is kind of similar to popular survival video games with four to six players fighting against each other in a survival horror revenge match.

What makes the game unique is that players can control numerous iconic characters from the franchise such as Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Chris Redfield. When players die, on the other hand, they can transform to the horrifying bioweapons also found in the franchise.

However, Capcom announced via Twitter that the game’s release was pushed back to next year “so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.”

In a follow up thread, Capcom reminds players to keep track of their vouchers and download codes especially when the game finally launches.

It has not been that long since Capcom opened the beta test for the game where fans have expressed their frustration and disappointment. Apparently, the game was struggling to match players in the lobby. A few hours after the beta’s launch, Capcom decided to shut it down.

Nevertheless, those who purchased Resident Evil: Village can acquire Resident Evil Re:Verse for free as part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary. For more information, interested players can check out Capcom’s official site.

Resident Evil Re:Verse will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
