Just as Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake scored the highest overall score of any game released on Metacritic in 2019, it looks like the upcoming Resident Evil 4 could do the same this year.
It’s also the best number for a franchise in recent years. His RE2 remake in 2019 is slightly lower at 93/91/89, his RE3 remake in 2020 is considerably lower at 84/79/77, and the all-new game Resident Evil Village in 2021 is at 84/83/ was 83.

The latter two are simpler remasters, but this one is a full-blown remake on a new engine and lags far behind the aforementioned Dead Space remake Hi-Fi Rush as the top-scoring ‘new’ game of 2023. is taking (89) and “Hogwarts Legacy” (88).
With the game’s release imminent, the obvious question is where will Capcom go next? Will Resident Evil 6 follow?Will they return to the beginning with a second remake of the first game? Will they try to bring the Dreamcast’s Resident Evil Code Veronica into the modern era?
Much will depend on the sales of the remake of the fourth game, which hits stores next Friday.
