The rumored Resident Evil 4 remake is going to feature a story that will expand the original's in some intriguing ways.

Dusk Golem, who has proved to possess insider information regarding the Resident Evil series, recently revealed on his Twitter profile that the development team is focusing on expanding the story by further developing elements that have been introduced in the original.

Dusk Golem also touched upon how the Resident Evil 4 remake will play. The original game revolutionized the series and the gaming landscape, and by making the remake play like the original or the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes would prevent it from achieving what the original accomplished. This is quite interesting, as Resident Evil 4 plays great even for today's standards, and may have not needed a complete gameplay overhaul.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is rumored to be in development by M-Two. Original RE4 director Shinji Mikami is not directly involved in the creation of the remake, but he did contribute to make the project a reality.

The project does have Shinji Mikami's full approval, his help here is limited because he's obligated to GhostWire right now but part of how this project even came to be was through his decision and talking with Capcom.

The next entry in the Resident Evil series releasing next year is Resident Evil Village. The game was rumored to be a cross-gen release, but the technical limitations of current-gen hardware would have held it back considerably, according to a report. 

The Resident Evil 4 Remake is rumored to release in 2022. We will keep you updated on it as soon as more come in on the game, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
