Hey, remember Resident Evil Re:Verse, the multiplayer companion game to Resident Evil Village? Probably not, we had forgotten about it as well but it appears it ‘s still a thing and might finally be released a good two years since the launch of Resident Evil Village.
A PEGI listing, spotted by Gematsu, has just rated the game for Stadia (another thing most people have forgotten). The PlayStation 4, Xbox and PC versions were rated a year ago.
The game was meant to come out with Resident Evil Village, then got pushed back to July 2021, then got pushed back again to an unspecified date this year. No specific reasoning is given for the delay, but the tweet explains that this is “so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.”
For players who purchased a physical version of Resident Evil Village, we recommend that you keep track of the included Resident Evil Re:Verse download code or add it to your account now so that you are ready to play when the game launches next year.

Re:Verse was meant to be a freebie bundled in with Resident Evil Village but is released as a separate standalone game on your platform of choice. The game has a separate download code for those who purchased a physical copy of Village. Capcom suggest that you redeem these codes sooner rather than later.
Resident Evil Re:Verse was announced back in January 2021 as part of the Resident Evil Village gameplay (and super tall vampire lady) reveal. A rip-roaring multiplayer game in with two teams of six players face off in iconic locations from the series, powering up and bringing out some of the biggest baddies from the series to batter rivals, it was intended to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for the Resident Evil series – these included a tie in with The Division 2, amongst other things.
With the new ratings on PEGI it does look like the game will finally be coming out sometime soon, expect something official from Capcom in the near future.
