RE Leaker Reveals Resident Evil 5 Remake Development is Unaffected by Racial Rumors

Recently, Dusk Golem, who has a solid reputation for providing accurate insights on Capcom’s projects, took to Twitter/X to talk about the recent rumors on RE 5 Remake. He specifically targeted claims that Capcom USA had paused the development of the RE5 Remake due to racial controversies surrounding the original game, as well as talked about allegations that the source code for Resident Evil 5 had been lost in the 2011 tsunami.

“I don’t believe the rumor in big part since I know for a fact that several parts of it are wrong,” Dusk Golem stated. He clarified that the claims about Capcom losing source code in the tsunami are false. Moreover, he emphasized that the idea of Capcom USA having a significant influence on the development of the remake due to racial concerns is also incorrect.

Well, Resident Evil 5 has had a controversial reception within the gaming community. The game was released in 2009, and since its release it has been criticized for its action-heavy gameplay and its depiction of African culture.

Several fans have pointed that the game portrayed African people in a problematic manner, even before they turned into zombies. Some also speculated that the inclusion of Sheva, a character of African descent, was a token gesture to mitigate these criticisms.

Despite these controversies, the British Board of Film Classification found no evidence of racism in the game, and Capcom has maintained that Sheva was always planned as a character.

Now, while Dusk Golem did not provide specific details on the current status of the RE5 remake, he reassured fans that development is not being hindered by the alleged racial concerns. He also debunked rumors about the development of Resident Evil 9, stating that recent speculation about its gameplay and characters was inaccurate.

As of now, in the absence of official announcements from Capcom, the future of the Resident Evil franchise remains speculative. However, given Capcom’s recent success with remakes, it is likely that they will approach the Resident Evil 5 remake with the sensitivity required to address its past controversies effectively.
