Originally supposed to launch alongside Resident Evil Village before being pushed back to July 2021, Resident Evil Re:Verse is facing another delay. The free companion multiplayer game will now release sometime in 2022.
According to Capcom, the delay is to allow the team to “continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.” If you purchased a physical version of Resident Evil Village, the company recommends “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.”
Re:Verse was intended to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil, which was originally released for the PlayStation in 1996. The game will allow users to play as beloved characters from the franchise, testing their skills against other players in four-to-six-person survival horror revenge matches.
