Resident Evil 4 is almost certainly getting its remake shortly. This has not yet been officially confirmed, but the theft of material from Capcom's servers has found clear evidence of this. Resident Evil 4 director Shinji Mikami, who is no longer at Capcom but has nothing against potential reworking, was also asked about the possibility of reworking.
"Fans will definitely want to see this remake, so that's a good thing," Mikami said in an interview with VG247. He added that it would be good if Capcom made the Resident Evil 4 story better through reworking. When asked why he thinks the story of the original is not good, Mikami said it would have been having he not been in a hurry to come up with it. Namely, he discovered that Resident Evil 4 had only three weeks to come up with and write the whole story.
The recent VR version of Resident Evil 4 for Oculus Quest 2 devices has already embarked on modifying the story of Mikami’s game, not by adding new plots or dialogue but by throwing out things that today someone might find chauvinistic or offensive.
The previous two remakes of Resident Evil games (first, second and third part) will also bring significantly modified stories versus the original. In the case of the first two games, this was well-received, while the Resident Evil 3 remake failed a bit by omitting certain parts of the story.
