Capcom is a big supporter of Sony and its virtual reality ventures. The best-selling Resident Evil installment, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, was a huge seller on the original PlayStation VR. The franchise's eighth mainline entry, Resident Evil Village, is also part of the PSVR 2 launch lineup.
Now, it appears that the remake of Resident Evil 4 will be available to play on the PSVR 2 VR as well.
The official announcement of the Resident Evil 4 VR mode reads:
The VR mode for Resident Evil 4 has begun development! please look forward to more details in the future!
It's not surprising that the Resident Evil 4 Remake will get a VR mode given it was originally announced when we first found out about the game last year. Even if it wasn't confirmed back then, the original Resident Evil 4 also eventually got a VR mode, presumably because it's widely considered the best series entry of all time.
Unfortunately, Capcom didn't confirm how extensive the PSVR2 functionality of the Resident Evil 4 Remake is going to be. Keep in mind that Resident Evil 7 and 8 are first-person titles, which lends itself to a VR port. On the other hand, Resident Evil 4 and its remake will primarily be played in a third-person perspective, similar to the older installments. But, if the VR mode for the remake of Resident Evil 4 extends to the full game, the PSVR2 will have a huge console seller on its hands, on top of Horizon Call of the Mountain.
At this point, there's still plenty left to learn about the Resident Evil 4 Remake let alone the PSVR 2 mode. We'll find out more at Sony's next State of Play event and when the title comes out on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and the PC on March 24.
We're hoping that Capcom considers porting the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 to the PSVR 2 on top of working on a new remake of the original Resident Evil.
