RE:Verse delayed until later this year

Resident Evil Village is still on track for its 7 May release.

Resident Evil RE:Verse has been delayed until later this year, an email from Capcom to Resident Evil Ambassadors has proclaimed.

The email, as reported by GameSpot, has declared that the multiplayer shooter will instead release in mid-2021.

Meant to be bundled in with Resident Evil Village — which hasn’t been delayed — RE:Verse is an entirely online affair featuring iconic characters like Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Jack Baker and the Nemesis as they square off locations all around the Raccoon City Police Department.

RE:Verse has been plagued with issues, including an open beta that was suspended almost immediately after its launch due to matchmaking issues.

Resident Evil Village heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5 on 7 May. RE:Verse will now follow at a later date on those same platforms.
