Resident Evil fans will feel sad that Capcom has ordered the development of the Survivors Remake: Veronica to stop its operations.
A copy of the code: fans of Veronica remake were expecting something new.
According to a recent tweet written on Twitter by a fan-sourced development team, Capcom reportedly threatened to take legal action against them for using copyrighted material that the company owns. The city had been ten years ago in the same way that it was in the mood for a remake of one of their most lavish movies. The development team is a huge group of passionate fans of the game who joined forces in 2019 after the release of the remake of Resident Evil 2.
The story of the franchise has always been murky in the sand. That was planned for the purpose of establishing Resident Evil 3 and to get the story where Resident Evil 2 left off was eventually stripped of its title due to contractual obligations.
The three entrants were given to Evil 3: Nemesis, with code: Veronica finally being released as an unnumbered entry into the long-running horror-game franchise. All this happened even though the games were critical to the series’ story. Code Veronica has important revelations about the Umbrella Corporation and re-introduces Albert Wesker, the antagonist of the original Resident Evil game. This was a good story for the franchise as it was developed in Code: Veronica finally wrote about Evil 4, despite the detour that ensued in Evil 4.
Capcom officially canceled the release of the Code Veronica and Resident Evil fan remakes. We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment. The developer has discontent and information. Thank you. https://t.co/aDiCvx1LGp pic.twitter.com/S5TNEnaXVww.
Resident Evil: Code Veronica REMAKE (@RECodeVeronicaR) December 24, 2022
A common example of the Resident Evil Code: Veronica has always been ignored by Capcom. Although Code Veronica received a DHD remaster, the game was natively available for a new-ish console in 2011 when Capcom introduced the game to the PS3 and Xbox 360.
And this remake didn’t only fit the originals in a retexture. From a fixed-camera angle to a third-person shooter, with a front-to-back view, in a totally new environment and reintroducing fan-favorite weapons, enemies and encounters. It’s been too long since a few years. Veronica deserves the same treatment. So a small development team, composed of loyal fans, was pleased to have created this code. But when the most recent controversy erupted by Capcom, it seems that their passion project was going to fail.

You’re getting a better understanding of the risk.
The Twitter account that came to the development team for Code: Veronica from the moment of 2019 was created in order to cherish the game. With the critically acclaimed commercial success that was the remake of Resident Evil 2, fans started pushing Capcom to change the current style of action with a new series. The small yet passionate development team began working on remaking 2 and 3 characters by Veronica despite having it all of the time clearly showed that their product was not intended for sale to generate profits, but instead as a free-to-download game for the rest of the community. In May 2021, they shared the screenshots from early games, with an extended statement overshadowing the whole project, saying that would be obliged if Capcom would try to discontinue development.
This isn’t an official release in the sense that, fan-made, game will not be for sale on Steam, but only free download, as long as Capcom does not object. It probably depends on that.
Death, Death, and Death, The Legend of Death, Death, and death.
And a year and a half later, after continuous updates and moving closer to the final version of the developer’s vision, Capcom decided to pull the plug on the operation.
It was a heartbreaking situation for the development team and the diehard fans that were beyond excited to play a modern-day version of their 20-year-old game. Companies taking down such projects isn’t rare as it’s their right to protect their intellectual property rights. As far as I am concerned, Capcom has no intention of doing that, and every playable version of the Code is removed from the Internet, as much as Capcom demands.
