RE:Verse beta suspended over matchmaking issues

Whoops.

The Resident Evil RE:Verse beta has been suspended due to matchmaking issues, Capcom has recently confirmed.

The beta began yesterday… and apparently didn’t get off to a great start.

“As we are still seeing issues with RE:Verse OBT [open beta test] matchmaking service, we have decided that until further notice to temporarily suspend the OBT to resolve the problem,” Capcom said in a statement. “We will continue to investigate, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.”

We’ll update this story when the beta is back in action. It was originally planned to conclude on 11 April, but that may change given today’s circumstances.

RE:Verse will be bundled with Resident Evil Village and follows in the footsteps of Resistance as a multiplayer Resident Evil adventure. This time around, classic heroes and villains square off against one another in the middle of iconic locales.

Both Resident Evil RE:Verse and Resident Evil Village head to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5 from 7 May 2021.
