Capcom has provided gamers with an estimate of how long it will take to complete its remake of Resident Evil 4 when it is released in the first few months of 2019. Among the series’ entries, Resident Evil 4 has consistently ranked as one of the longest.

Even though it was expected that the next remake of RE4 wouldn’t make the title much shorter, some fans speculated that Capcom would make the game even more drawn out. As it happens, this is not something that should be the case at all.

Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, one of the producers working on the re-creation of Resident Evil 4, has stated in a new interview with PC Gamer that the length of the re-imagined version of the game will be roughly equivalent to that of the original.

According to Hirabayashi, the game’s length will remain the same as the original because of fan response after Capcom remade Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. And even though the remastered edition of RE4 will undoubtedly have several tweaks, it is quite clear that these improvements will not cause the game to be much lengthened or shortened.

The initial version of Resident Evil 4 took most players approximately 15 hours to complete from start to finish, as indicated by aggregate data from the How Long to Beat website. The remade version of RE4 may be released at a different time depending on several things, but based on Hirabayashi’s remarks, it seems likely that the game will be released around this same period.

Even while the new version of the game will feature some changes to both the story and the gameplay, it appears like developer Capcom is not trying to deviate too far from the aspects of the original game that contributed to the game’s widespread popularity.
