Resident Evil Village was set to launch with a multiplayer game called Resident Evil Re:Verse. Prior to a troubled Beta, the game ended up not being launched with Resident Evil Village back in May as they pushed it back to a July release. The launch for the beta was April and that was the start of the problems.
When is it coming out?
Well, July arrived and we saw no signs of any date coming which is a troubling sign. Today via various social media platforms they announced another delay. This time its got a 2022 date
Why another delay?
Capcom says they want a “smooth gameplay experience” when they release it. And with a fresh Covid 19 wave hitting Tokyo there’s always a chance being based in Osaka is affecting them. Though a good 500 km separates them. Chances are the game is more complex than Capcom thought and is nowhere near ready
So is it early next year?
The statement gives no indication of when just 2022. Which is fairly vague.
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
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.Resident Evil Re:Verse is delayed yet again on it’s rocky road to launch.
What was wrong with the beta?
It was down to the matchmaking, which caused Capcom issues. In fact a few hours after it went live, they temporarily shut the beta down. Personally, I don’t know what the beta played like as I was one of many who experienced similar issues.
