Data allegedly obtained from Capcom in a recent hack suggests that a VR version of Resident Evil 4 is coming to Oculus headsets next year.

As reported by PC GamerCapcom’s network was breached on November 2nd as a part of a ransomware attack, which saw the public release of an alleged 1TB of internal data.

Capcom confirmed the leak in a press release, saying a hacker group called Ragnar Locker destroyed and encrypted data on its servers in effort to extort money from the company.

In all, Capcom says some customer and shareholder data was leaked, as well as “some corporate information” including sales reports, financial information, and development documents.

We haven’t vetted the leaked data in question, however PC Gamer maintains that both the name and supposed release date was included in a calendar for a VR version of Resident Evil 4 for Oculus, cited as arriving in April 2021. It’s uncertain which headset is indicated, as the data reportedly only referred to ‘Oculus’ by name.

Considering the original game was first released on consoles in 2005 and then later remastered in 2011, the Quest platform is a likely bet; Facebook has also largely abandoned PC VR in the wake of Quest 2, its latest standalone VR headset.

And although the release dates for these hot-ticket Capcom properties are still far enough away to change, it points to a multi-pronged strategy to launch multiple Resident Evil properties around the same time next year.

The data also suggests the upcoming Resident Evil Village will arrive in April 2021, with the Resident Evil Netflix series Infinite Darkness following in May.

    “Considering the original game was first released on consoles in 2005 and then later remastered in 2011, the Quest platform is a likely bet”

    That would only be likely if the ported that old version to Quest. It is however more likely that we will see a full high fidelity remake like we already saw with RE2 and RE3, which could get the VR treatment on PSVR and PC. Considering how advanced the first two remakes’ graphics were, I wouldn’t hold my breath for those to work on Quest. Unless you butcher the visuals even more than Blair Witch did.

    • Blaexe

      I don’t think we’ll see any more non-Quest Oculus exclusives aside from Medal of Honor and Lone Echo 2.

      • Kevin Brook

        Medal of Honour will be on Steam so no longer an Oculus exclusive, and the repeated delays to Lone Echo 2 are almost certainly due to it being recoded to run on Quest. Hopefully we at least get a decent PC VR version alongside it…

        • Blaexe

          Medal of Honor being in Steam doesn’t contradict what I’m saying.

          I’m saying: Every future VR game funded by Facebook will run on Quest.

          • d0x360

            Running on quest and being quest exclusive are different.

            Games can easily scale but this one doesn’t even need to. The original quest should be able to run this game without any changes to the game itself.

            The only difference between quest and a native pc version would be frame rate and higher resolution on pc.

    • Adrian Meredith

      Lets hope its more along the lines of the RE2 remake and not RE3 which was just a quick cash in

      • Iraida Clark

        Get $192 of an hour from Google!… Yes this is true as I just got my first payout that was awesome since it was biggest amount of $38451 in a week…(o1703)…It seems un-believable but you won’t forgive yourself if you do not check it >>>> http://www.LifestylesLinks.com |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

    • Gonzax

      I very much doubt it would be a PCVR game, it’s very clear Oculus is done with that, everything for them is Quest now; maybe, and that’s a big maybe, there could be a pcvr and Quest version but I wouldn’t hold my breath for that. If the rumor is true I bet it will be a Quest game only.

    • Bob

      PCVR or a Quest release very unlikely. I think the more likely scenario here is that the traditional flat version of an RE4 remake is released in late 2022 (rumored date flying around internet forums) which is essentially the same year the next version of the PSVR is “allegedly” released. It will get the VR treatment the same way RE7 did which means exclusivity to the PSVR ecosystem.

      Wouldn’t make any sense for Capcom to waste resources doing an entire VR port of the old version for Quest which in actuality isn’t that simple to pull off. Why do a VR port of a 16 year old game when you could do for a next gen game on a next gen VR system?

      • namekuseijin

        This doesn’t make any damn sense.

        Why would psvr2 need a remake of an old game when it’s rumored to be getting RE8 itself?

        And btw, RE8 itself looks to me precisely like RE4 Remake, down to the same kind of european village…

        This needs to be for Quest. And the timing is right for another survivor from that era is coming to Quest too: Doom 3

        • d0x360

          Sony paid allot for re7 VR but I don’t think they would do it again.

          Even if they did you can still play re7 in vr on pc (at much higher quality than ps4 pro) using vorpx

          • namekuseijin

            vorpx is a bad joke

          • d0x360

            A bad joke? So either you haven’t ever used it or you have but don’t understand how to use it or don’t have a pc capable of using it.

            That or you’re sad someone wants to be paid for their work and you’re just cheap because you can’t pirate it.

            Vorpx works amazingly well and I’ve run so many games as vr it’s insane. Re7 on pc in vr… glorious. Re2 & 3 in VR, amazing. Most FPS games in perfect VR..yes ty.

            Tell me exactly what your issue with vorpx is?

      • d0x360

        The leak mentions oculus so it will be nothing more than a port of re4 hd just in VR.

        It won’t have improved visuals except MAYBE hand and gun textures for Leon.

        It would also release for pc and quest.

    • namekuseijin

      I’m hoping for native Quest 2 port straight from the original game graphics, just like what psvr got with Skyrim.

      Quest needs more substantial games. I don’t have a pc always available for whenever I need my VR fix.

    • Amni3D

      Heavy doubt. I think it would be a direct port of the 2005 game, similar to the Switch port. Possibly the same code base since they already went through the effort to create a native port for ARM.

      I also don’t think Capcom would spend time making a fully fledged remake for Quest unless they were offered some big bucks. As much as people say the Quest is “a mainstream success!”, total units aren’t actually that much. On top of this, Capcom’s already made a few PSVR exclusives locking RE7 to the platform, and I’m pretty sure if they have something particularly notable in the works regarding VR, Quest won’t be their target platform outside of a quick port using something already running on ARM.

    • d0x360

      It’s doubtful we would see a re2&3 style remake is it’s going to be vr exclusive. Capcom would probably sell more copies of an re4 remake than 2&3 combined.

      Re4 HD should run on quest just fine…it’s just a gamecube game with a few very minor tweaks..so that’s some pretty ancient hardware that a modern mobile SOC would work fine.

      • Wild Dog

        2 and 3 remakes came fairly recently anyway.

        • d0x360

          Yes they did but I didn’t mean they would remake then again if that’s what you mean.

          Capcom absolutely will remake more RE games. I’m personally waiting with fingers crossed for Code Veronica.

          I’m just saying that IF they do re4 vr and it’s exclusive to oculus then there is zero chance it will have lots of effort put into it in terms of changes because making it VR only already puts it in a niche market and then blocking basically 50% of that niche audience is even more insane.
          So if this happens and is exclusive it will just be the re4 we already know (and probably own at least twice) with maybe some better look gun models and textures and better looking hands but beyond that… identical.

          • Wild Dog

            And that’s already looking more and more likely with WH40K battlesisters coming as a quest exclusive.

          • d0x360

            Quest exclusive… Meh. I understand the appeal but I’m a pc vr guy and I have a rift s so I can play quest games I just… Dislike the visual downgrade they get.

            Population Zero is a perfect example of a game that was looking impressive until they made it quest compatible and the visuals went from RTX 2080 level to… GTX 960 level.

            Shame really.

          • Wild Dog

            They tried to do it to Onward, but I hear their community actually had a spine and put a stop to that nonsense.

          • d0x360

            Good because it doesn’t even make sense to do it. Games can scale…that’s why you can play games on pc at 144fps but on console it maxed out at 30.
            So for the Quest they should automatically scale the visuals instead of just making them worse on every platform.

            I go back to the game population one… It currently looks like a higher resolution n64 game but before they decided to make it have the same visuals on quest and pc it actually looked pretty good…like almost fortnite maxed out good.

            Now the gameworld feels empty because they removed ALL grass and also things like broken down vehicles and other debris. They lowered texture detail and I’m not kidding when I say down to basically n64 level.

            The only reason they gutted the game was to enable cross play. The sad thing is I think the game would have sold quite well in it’s original form but now with the downgrade all the people on pc have decided to pass on it and based on player counts it doesn’t look like many people on quest have it either…which is probably because 75% of quest owners are casual gamers that only break games out when friends are over.

          • Wild Dog

            Mhm.

  • Bob

    Looks like Scott picked up this one first before UploadVR! :)

  • TechPassion

    Why to Oculus, this retarded platform?

    • Blaexe

      facebook is either paying for this or Capcom wants to bring it to the most succesful VR platform. Pretty obvious answer, huh?

    • Such a shame that this under powered headset is the most widespread one and it has already started to hold VR back. :/

      • Toothlover

        yeah, because everyone can afford an expensive pc to run an expensive hmd. you ppl sometimes buffle me with your elitist entitlement.

        • ComfyWolf

          What’s stopping them from developing for PCVR and then downgrading for Oculus? I have a Quest, I like getting games for it, but I want games to be the best they can be for every platform, I don’t want PCVR players to get a severely downgraded game so that I can play on equal ground.

          • James Cobalt

            To answer your question – resources. They aren’t limitless, unfortunately.

          • DanDei

            After the success of RE2 and RE3 it is absolutely clear that they are already working on the remake of part 4 for PC and consoles. So all the expensive stuff, all the high quality assets are being build anyway. It would be easier and cheaper to make a VR port with those assets than building lower poly models for everything and remove thousands of level objects to fit the limited Quest GPU. So ressources isn’t that big of an issue in this case.

      • TechPassion

        Actually good and bad, rather good. I think the power of these wireless headsets will grow and you can connect them to PC and play your steam games. The other bad side is game makers might not concentrate that much on PC VR quality games. Hmmmm Bitter and sweet at the same time.

        • Gonzax

          That’s pretty much the problem IMO, that most developers will start making games for Quest and forget about PCVR or make both versions but without taking full advantage of the pc’s capabilities.
          Other than that, it’s very positive the Quest is out, a lot of people are buying the headset and realising that VR is not a fad but something very very cool.

          • Arturis Dentalis

            There could also be a scenario where ‘AAA’/beefy VR games are made for the PSVR2 and then ported to PCVR.
            This is of course assuming that Sony have half a brain and continue to build on the success of the PSVR.

      • Andrew Jakobs

        Actually it’s this platform that is bringing VR to the larger crowd, you may not like it, but it is the truth.. It’s not like the other companies are releasing headsets that are much better..

        • Gonzax

          Agreed. I have an Index, which I totally Iove, but I have to admit I am very impressed by the Quest 2, it is a fantastic headset.

        • Actually, they are. More expensive…but better. With no obligatory account that is used just to sell your private data to companies.

          • Andrew Jakobs

            Not really, as the more expensive headsets also have their own negatives, even the HP Reverb G2.. And please stop souding like a broken record with the account thing. What Facebook has done with their headset is amazing for it’s price, only negative really is the IPD adjustment which is the biggest problem and IMHO should be fixed in the next SKU release.

          • Phil

            There is a trick to the IPD adjustment. If you move the lenses slowly, you can have a setting in between the numbers.

          • Hey buddy, if you don’t mind seeing your private information being sold to God knows who, that’s your problem. I use common sense, and would rather pay more than support company like facebook. The price of headset covers the manufacturing cost, and then they make profit on your data. It is really worrying how many sheepish imbeciles there are on the planet today.

          • SHEEP ! SHEEP ! SHEEP !
            Yes! You pointing it out makes it true!
            Well, you and Fox news.

          • Yes, we all know @duxcro is simply a Shill-bot for ….well, i don’t know who.
            the Facebook account this is ….grr….but I made one…never use it. Only used it once, to attach my device.
            But, I agree with you. The IPD lacks understanding. Fortunately it works for me equally on 2 / 3 settings. But, they should expand on that.

      • EliteForceCinema

        Sounds like you hate Oculus Quest and standalone VR as a whole due to shitty mobile graphics and a shitty mobile processor and that you prefer PC VR over them because AAA graphics are all you care about for VR and not the experiences!

      • Kevin Brook

        Quest is not holding VR back. The complete lack of consumer uptake is. If Facebook left VR I’m not even sure the industry would survive. Unfortunately nobody buys PCVR games. Take Half Life Alyx, the biggest ever smash hit VR game. Phasmohobia, an indie horror made by a single person has already sold more than double the copies and it’s only been out a few months.

        Quest game sales outdo PCVR sales by around 10 to 1. Just check the number of reviews for games on the two platforms.

        Facebook are almost single handedly keeping VR alive at this point. Even Sony have pulled out now.

        • alboradasa

          Phasmaphobia costs $14 while half-life costs $45. Alyx comes free with the index. So comparing number of copies sold is pretty meaningless. Not to mention the fact phasma sold during the perfect storm of Halloween during a pandemic

      • namekuseijin

        This underpowered headset is feeding devs and bringing real AAA (old) games to market. If you want small hungry indies, you know where to find them.

      • Wow. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but frankly yours is SO wrong in those opinions I should be ignoring instead of replying.
        Is the Nintendo Switch holding back console gaming?
        Have you even *tried* a Quest 1/2 ?

        Didn’t think so.

        • I already blocked you. Baiiii

    • EliteForceCinema

      And you’re trying to say you want Oculus to go out of business for good and get all of their employees to go bankrupt and homeless because you think Oculus is owned by Facebook and that you think Facebook is bad simply because you care about your privacy and nothing else? Cause it sounds like you are!

    • namekuseijin

      because it’s ultra popular and brings much needed money to devs.

    • Cause it’s awesome. You are obviously:
      A) A hater
      B) someone who has never tried one
      C) A trump/stolen election/conspiratorialist

      sorry, just threw that last one in to be a bitch.
      Really, I am waiting for Wireless INDEX and will gladly fork over $1500 just to play nothing but Beat Saber.
      But in the meantime, Quest 2 is my fourth VR headset and so far my favorite. Plays wherever but also plays my Steam Games hotspotted to my laptop via my new WiFi ax card.
      Fast. Soooo fast.

  • LoneWuff326

    dang im hyped…but i just hope there not doing the borderlands 2 vr style i hope its actually a remake of resident evil 4 in vr with vr mechanics and the game was build from ground up for vr and not just a port(emm.Borderlands 2)

    • d0x360

      Play borderlands 1, 2 and 3 in VR using vorpx.

  • Ragbone

    Just like resident evil 7 vr is coming to the pc… lol

  • cake

    I no longer believe in the story that resident evil 4 or ace combat 7 will come to pc VR. And I don’t understand how the games industry doesn’t realize the money mine this can generate, not to mention the possibility of curbing game piracy. The excuse that the headsets and PCs for this are high, is absurd, because with a 1070 you can play vr very well. Furthermore, over time, headsets tend to come cheaper. See the DECAGEAR promise or even the hp reverb g2.

  • brandon9271

    cool that they’re abandoning PC gamers.. The very people that kickstarted Oculus and the entire VR industry… dicks

    • Arturis Dentalis

      The entire VR industry? Well, no. ‘Project Morpheus’/PSVR was in development since at least 2011 and there’ve been at least 5 million sold as of December 2019. The Oculus Rift played a huge part, but it wasn’t by any means the only reason for VR gaining traction.

      • brandon9271

        DK1 was out YEARS before PSVR. Palmer was showing off prototypes at QuakeCon. yes, Oculus and Palmer started this new wave of VR and Sony jumped on the wave just like they do everything else. The Wii came out and then they did PSmove. They’re copy cats

        • Arturis Dentalis

          As I said, the PSVR was in development since at least 2011, so it’s not accurate to say Sony ‘jumped on the wave’.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_VR#History

          5 million+ PSVR headsets have been sold so far (not bad for an aging HMD), so to ignore that significant number of VR units sold and say PC gamers alone kickstarted the entire VR industry, is ridiculous.

        yeah, that’s it exactly.. you’re a mind reader…. or I want the game to be on the platform I actually own, the one that Oculus started on and the one that made them exist in the first place. There’s no reason to make it mobile exclusive other than to force people to buy Quest.

  • Foreign Devil

    If everybody is using their Quests for wireless PCVR like me. . I think Oculus will take notice and keep financing PC VR games. I bought Quest 2 and ditched my CV1. . but mainly play all my games PC VR with wifi connection to Quest2. I just prefer the better graphics and deeper games offered on PC.

    • ComfyWolf

      It’s a relatively small portion of Quest owners that use it for PCVR, Oculus is owned by Facebook so they only care about the majority. Kinda like how Quest 2 no longer supports my IPD of 72, because I don’t fall within the majority.

      • namekuseijin

        I have an IPD of 7.2 and while not ideal, still has a clear sweet spot. It looks larger to me than on my old psvr.

    • Kevin Brook

      They won’t. PCVR is a far smaller market proportionally than people realise. The number of Steam PC users with a VR headset is still well below 2%. Funding AAA PCVR games is basically like funding a AAA game that only runs on a HOTAS setup or a racing wheel.

      • namekuseijin

        You’re not funding anything here, just porting an old game to VR. IF modders can do a great job relatively quickly, there shouldn’t be a huge amount of money involved…

    • namekuseijin

      I think pcvr enthusiasts may be getting the Quest 2 as their higher resolution fix, but most people buying Q2 are not. I’ve been following in lots of FB groups and they’re all very casual folks, getting their families and kids aboard. It feels very much like the Wii days all over again, with elderly ladies having a taste of the future.

      Not the regular gaming crowd into precise shooting or die-hard racing sims, just the kind of average human being wanting some quality fun time with a Nintendo console…

      In this sense, RE4 really makes no sense for Quest. But just the fact that’s it’s becoming this popular also means a part of those crowds are actual gamers wanting more games… Like me.

    • So, I gotta ask…Do you go through your wifi/router? or tether straight to your PC?

      I just installed new intel AX200 wifimax/6/ax internal wifi card in my laptop. I hook it up to ethernet and hotspot to my Quest 2 for direct access. Also works with the new oculus.com/casting. Ballz fast.

      • Foreign Devil

        I started tethered . using Anker cable and extension. . but finally got around to buying Virtual Desktop and going wireless. . which was worth it. (though I think Facebook will come out with their own free wireless app soon enough). I’ve got an Orbi router and satellite. . my PC is plugged into the Orbi router satellite. 5Ghz. It seems to work fine even though the PC is not plugged into the router itself.

  • Mr. X

    Hope that the rumored RE4 Remake isn’t just some ported-to-VR cash grab.

    • DanDei

      Capcom made big money on the first two remakes and RE4 is one of the top parts of the series. Of course they are giving it the full remake treatment with all the high quality assets.

    • Bob

      Not this time. RE3make was a one off which seemed to have hit them pretty hard after taking all the negative feedback from it. They’re going all out on this one like they did with the original ;)

          Well, not completely. I use facebook too, you know.

          But I do nefariously hope for them to fail at VR! Just like Playstation has!

          The age of exclusive platforms will come to an end AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP IT!!!

          MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

    • EliteForceCinema

      You just want literally every single VR games to be a permanent Valve Index and SteamVR exclusive as a whole simply because you praise and worship Gaben Newell as your god and master for some unexplained reason!!!!

  • Jim P

    Sweet dreams are made of these. Love that song.

  • Trekkie313

    PSVR is gonna get it first.

  • d0x360

    If Facebook has an exclusive deal on this game then you can probably bet your ass it will have a pc version and a quest version.

    Either way the game is ancient so unless they do a re2&3 style remake then it should run just fine on max pc settings anyways.

  • Anthony Kenneth Steele

    I just hope it’s a direct port with 1st person. Maybe drbeef can beat them to it.
