Thanks to a series of documents and materials obtained before the launch, journalist Peter Pischke revealed that RESIDENT EVIL 4 VR suffered heavy censorship.
Through the pages of The Happy Warrior, the reporter said that the complaints concern any content that could be considered misogynistic by the public and the press. Thus, flirting dialogues between the characters, as well as some sarcastic jokes, have been removed from the game, even modifying the final cutscene and removes completely a post-credit dialogue between Leon and Ingrid.
According to the reporter these changes were imposed by Facebook company owning Oculus Quest 2, which is the platform on which the title will be launched on an exclusive basis on 21 October. This could involve the company of problems related to “false advertising”, as in the past he would have declared that all “the cutscenes will be present in their original format”And that only some details would have been changed but without upsetting the game.
On the other side CAPCOM it may have had very little say in the matter. The software house has in fact simply carried out a supervision job for this chapter in virtual reality, thanks to the producer Masachika Kawata. The decision to censor the dialogues it may have been taken later, when the investments for the realization of the game had already been made, thus leaving CAPCOM no chance to counter.
At the moment neither CAPCOM nor Facebook have released any statements on the complaints. We just have to wait to find out how and how much it has been modified RESIDENT EVIL 4 VR and if there is a possibility that these complaints will be removed.
