We're just over a week away now from Resident Evil Village's launch. Marking the latest entry in Capcom's iconic survival horror franchise, it was scheduled to release with a deathmatch multiplayer experience called Resident Evil Re:Verse. However, as reported by Gamespot, that appears to have been delayed.
Citing an email sent to “Resident Evil ambassadors”, Re:Verse is now launching this summer, but a more specific timeframe wasn't given. Though Capcom hasn't officially announced this yet, the official Resident Evil website now lists a "Summer 2021" for it, basically confirming this news.
Resident Evil Re:Verse Gets Delayed Until This Summer
As an offshoot, this delay won't hold much impact on Village's release. Offering 6v6 multiplayer fights, it doesn't specifically tie-in with Ethan Winters' new adventure, and brings back Resident Evil veterans like the Redfields, Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong, and more.
While disappointing, this delay may come as a relief for some fans. Re:Verse's open beta launched earlier this month, but was pulled after seven hours due to matchmaking issues. Seeing widespread criticism, here's hoping Capcom take this time to make necessary improvements.
