Capcom has been working on a remake of Resident Evil 4 for two years which was approved by Shinji Mikami, the original author. This is reported by the authoritative Video Game Chronicles.
The project has recently moved to the stage of active production and release is expected in 2022. Mikami was offered to lead the development but he refused and gave the right to Tatsuya Minami, head of the studio M-Two who helped with the remake of Resident Evil 3.
Mikami who was originally supposed to go to the M-Two studio gave some advice to guide the remake of the fourth part despite the refusal.
Resident Evil 4 had time to port it to all actual platforms during 15 years of Resident Evil’s existence but the game was almost unchanged. For the first time Capcom decided to recreate the project from scratch as they already did with Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.
