Capcom decided to end development on a fan-made remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica, shortly after a year into the project. About to hit the PC, the title was canceled last weekend and has already had its networks and websites disabled by the creators.
While there aren’t many clarifications, the remake’s devs say that this shouldn’t be seen as hinting at an original Capcom game. According to them, their game was closed for “pure evil”, it was motivated by the unrestricted use of the original characters and the trademark of the franchise.
“Capcom has unfortunately contacted us and canceled our projects,” reads a brief statement shared via Discord. “We are very sorry to report that they canceled out of pure malice, as there are no signs that an official Code Veronica is coming from them.”
In addition to Resident Evil: Code Veronica, a remake of the first numbered game in the series, created by the same developers, is also canceled. Social networks are being used to provide the latest information, while the official website has already decreed an early end.
So far there is no clarification of the case by the publisher. For those who were looking forward to the project, the way is to wait for more information.
