Resident Evil Village’s multiplayer mode has been pushed back and will no longer release alongside Resident Evil Village
as originally scheduled on May 7. The multiplayer mode will be delayed later into 2021, with no date specified.
As reported by Eurogamer, the Resident Evil Re:Verse’s website indicates that the multiplayer mode will still be free for those who purchase Resident Evil Village.
The website suggests the Re:Verse will have a ‘Summer 2021’ release window, so could be any time between June and August.
Resident Evil Re:Verse is a multiplayer shooter title, allowing up to six players to play. Players will be able to take control of some of the special series characters such as Leon S. Kennedy, Jull Valentine and many more. Players will also be able to transform into bioweapons such as Resident Evil 3
It is unclear as to why Capcom
has decided to delay Resident Evil Re:verse, but could be just as simple as trying to polish off the game. This would make a compelling argument though, as Resident Evil Resistance, the multiplayer mode of the game did not maintain a large player base for very long. Capcom could be going the extra mile to avoid this happening with Resident Evil Re:Verse.
Resident Evil Village will still release on May 7 as scheduled. You can pre-order the game at Go2Games
