Resident Evil Re:Verse may still be on track for release in 2022, despite developer Capcom going completely silent on it following a series of delays.
As shared by Gematsu on Twitter (below), the Google Stadia version of Re:Verse – the PvP game originally scheduled to arrive alongside Resident Evil: Village – has been rated by European ratings board PEGI.
Though Capcom hasn’t confirmed any release window except just “this year”, a game being rated usually signifies that a relatively complete version has been presented and it therefore isn’t too far from being released.

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions were rated exactly one year earlier (on May 7) but this was also the release date of Resident Evil: Village, and Re:Verse was originally intended to be a multiplayer mode within that game.
While nothing is officially confirmed until Capcom itself announces it, the rating does indicate that progress on Re:Verse is at least being made.
The game was first announced in January last year before being delayed to summer 2021 three months later. Two months after its intended original release date, Capcom announced in July that Re:Verse had been delayed to 2022 “so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience.”
Though the developer promised to share updates at a later date, practically nothing has been said about Re:Verse since the delay.
