Capcom announced that the Resident Evil 4 Remake is in development for the Macs featuring Apple Silicon. The devs proceeded to announce that they would release the game on iPad Air and iPad Pro using the M1 chip later in 2023, aiming to broaden the game’s accessibility to a wider range of players. They also revealed plans to make the Separate Ways DLC and free updates available on Mac devices.

Another direction that Capcom is looking at for the Resident Evil 4 Remake is VR. The game’s successful release on PlayStation 5 has pushed the developers to consider bringing it to PSVR. This feature has also been dropped on the day of the Separate Ways DLC. During the announcement, they stated that Resident Evil 8 would be released before the RE 4 Remake. This suggests that Capcom is actively expanding its portfolio of mobile gaming titles.
