News on the Resident Evil Re:Verse front has been deeply silent for about a year now since the game was delayed out of 2021 with a general release in 2022 now slated, but we’ve only just seen signs of life that could point to an upcoming announcement. The game was reviewed for the Google Stadia platform this week by one of the major game review organizations. It also has a “release date”, although this is almost certainly a placeholder, as it reflects the same dates used in previous rankings as one year old.
The new rating of Resident Evil Re:Verse appeared on the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) site and was first spotted by Gematsu. For the “Release dates and platforms” section, Stadia is the most recent listing with a July 5 release date attached. It should be noted, however, that July 5, 2021 was previously listed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. Second, the game never had an official release date and was just slated for July 2021, so it’s best not to put much stock on July 5, just yet.
This means that there isn’t much in the note per se in terms of news about the game’s release, but the note itself is enough to show those who are interested in the game that it is still alive. The game’s social media is still dark, with the most recent tweet from the account being the one that announced the delay, but if we want to start hearing more news about Reversethese social networks will probably be the place to look.
Resident Evil Re:Verse’s previously announced July 2021 launch is moved to 2022 so the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gaming experience. We will share updated launch details later. Thank you for your patience and understanding.#REVERSE pic.twitter.com/01UVGEdmx2

Reverse is another of Capcom’s multiplayer projects set in the Resident Evil universe and was intended to come free with purchases of Resident Evil Village. It unites Resident Evil characters spanning different games throughout the extensive series, including Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Hunk, Tyrant variants, and more. Since he missed the opportunity to come out alongside Resident Evil Village and those who purchased the most recent Resident Evil game may very well no longer have a download code handy, it is unknown how the release of this game will be handled.
Summer Game Fest kicks off in June to usher in a flurry of summer game announcements, so maybe we’ll see more on Resident Evil Re:Verse around this time.
