Rumors about Resident Evil 4 Remake have been fueled just a few hours ago, at the hands of the official Resident Evil account. As you may already know, the remake of Shinji Mikami’s title was one of the games that appeared on Capcom’s list of leaks a few months ago. It would be, if the forecasts are met, the next great remake of the saga after Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, although it would not arrive until 2022-2023 for the new generation of consoles. Meanwhile, we would enjoy Resident Evil Revelations 3 (known in the leaks as Resident Evil Outrage), which would star Rebecca Chambers.
Why were the rumors of Resident Evil 4 Remake stoked on the eve of Gamescom?
The rumors of the remake have been given by Resident Evil’s own official account and by three simple words: «4 Itchy. Tasty. If you know the saga well, it is possible that the words itchy, tasty sound familiar to you; but not for Resident Evil 4, but for Resident Evil 1. In a certain part of the game, we find the Caregiver’s Diary, in which we witness the zombiefication process suffered by one of the Umbrella employees who worked at the Spencer Mansion . And whose last entry reads «4. Pica. Rico “, being exactly the message of the tweet.
Despite this, some fans believe that the reference goes further and that it could be giving clues to Resident Evil 4 Remake. Although the truth is that, if we take into account the probabilities and the Capcom calendar, it is more likely that we will know more details of Resident Evil Revelations 3 during Gamescom than of this new remake, which would still have a lot of development time left.
