Resident Evil Re:Verse, the multiplayer mode that was originally supposed to launch alongside Resident Evil Village, has been delayed again. Developer Capcom pushed the release date from this month to some time in 2022 in an announcement Thursday.

Resident Evil Re:Verse Delayed to 2022

Capcom says it chose to delay the game so that "the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience."

"We will share updated launch details at a later time. Thank you for your patience and understanding," the company wrote on its Resident Evil Twitter account.

In a follow-up tweet, Capcom advised players who bought the physical version of Resident Evil Village to keep track of the Re:Verse download code that came with their game, or to add it to their accounts now despite the game's delayed launch. This indicates Capcom likely won't provide new codes to those who lose theirs, though the company hasn't explicitly said as much.

This second delay also comes after Capcom decided to suspend the game's open beta because of matchmaking problems.

Resident Evil Re:Verse is a six-player deathmatch game mode in which players take on the roles of characters from throughout the series.
