Resident Evil 4 art remake allegedly ‘shared Wesker’s voice’

The Wesker voice actor in the Resident Evil series allegedly shared confidential concept art of the unannounced Resident Evil 4 remake.

A drawing by @BewareCreepyVAs and republished on it shows a character in what appears to be a part of the unannounced Separate Paths game.

A later tweet from the same account claimed to have corroborating evidence that Douglas shared the illustration with several fans and urged them not to publish it publicly.

DC actor Douglas allegedly shared the image with more than one fan via a direct message on Twitter. While it’s unclear how reliable the image is, soon after it started spreading on social media, Douglas appears to be deleted my Twitter account

VGC has reached out to Capcom for comment and will update this story when we receive a response.

As first reported by VGC last year, a remake of Resident Evil 4 has been in development since 2018, initially led by Osaka-based M-Two, a studio founded by former PlatinumGames head Tatsuya Minami.

Little was known about M-Two, but people familiar with the company said it was funded in part by Capcom and consisted of some former PlatinumGames employees, including developers from the Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta 2 teams.

Our initial report on M-Two and Minami’s involvement, published in December 2019, was later confirmed by the credits of Resident Evil 3.

However, several sources later indicated that after a key review of the project late last year, it was decided that M-Two’s role in the RE4 remake would be significantly diminished.

Capcom’s Division 1 – the in-house team responsible for Resident Evil and Devil May Cry games – has now been brought in to lead the RE4 project, VGC reported earlier this year.

Sources said at the time that Resident Evil 4 Remake will now be partially rebooted under a new mandate, which could delay its release by a full year until 2023.
