Resident Evil Re: Verse may still be on track for a release in 2022, although developer Capcom has been completely silent about it after a series of delays.
As shared by Gematsu on Twitter (below), the Google Stadia version of Re: Verse – the PvP game that was originally set to arrive alongside Resident Evil: Village – has been rated by the European rating committee PEGI.
While Capcom hasn’t confirmed any release window except for “this year” only, a game that’s rated usually indicates a relatively complete release, so it’s not too far behind in release.

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