Resident Evil Code Veronica will seemingly not receive the remake treatment by Capcom for now. At least, that is what producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said.
In an interview with the website Noisy Pixel, Hirabayashi san was asked if the Japanese developers are planning to give the cult title a remake treatment. After all, other games in the series experienced astounding success once remade.
Hirabayashi-san says that for now, he and his team are focused on the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake. Hence, there are no plans for a Code Veronica remake. However, he did say that they might make it when the “opportunity comes.”
Surprisingly, Capcom isn’t planning on doing a port for the title. Seeing that the game takes place after Resident Evil 2, fans of the remake might enjoy the continuation of the story. After all, it shows what happens to Claire since the events of Racoon City.
