Some Resident Evil ambassadors have received an email from Capcom, mentioning that Resident Evil multiplayer RE:Verse will be available later this summer, meaning that the title has been delayed from its initial release date.

Capcom planned to launch RE:Verse simultaneously with Resident Evil Village but by the looks of it, this won't happen. Several Resident Evil ambassadors claim that they have received promotional emails for RE:Verse, which states that the title will be available in the summer of 2021, not before.

"Resident Evil RE:Verse is created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil! The service is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2021," it's written in the email.

The official website  has also been updated and it now states that the game is indeed coming in Summer 2021, not this May as previously anticipated. 

At the time of writing, Capcom are yet to comment on the delay, but it's safe to say that the issues with the recent beta are one of the reasons behind the decision. Players who participated in the beta stated that the game desperately needs a delay and more development time for further optimisation and polishing. It seems that will happen, luckily. 

RE:Verse is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The game will also be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X but both consoles will play the last-gen versions of the game.
