Leaker Hints at Release Date for Resident Evil 4 Remake's Separate Ways DLC 2

A well-known leaker has dropped some exciting news about the highly anticipated Separate Ways DLC for Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 remake. While Capcom hasn’t officially confirmed the addition of this beloved story mode to their critically acclaimed remake, recent data mining of Resident Evil 4 files hinted at its return.

In the remake, Capcom made some changes by removing certain content from the original 2005 game. However, they reassured fans that not all of these omissions would be permanent. They proved this by releasing the Mercenaries mode as free DLC on April 7, just two weeks after the game’s launch. This gave hope to fans that the Separate Ways content might also make a comeback.

Since then, Capcom has remained tight-lipped about any additional post-launch content for their popular game. But according to a trusted leaker known as Dusk Golem, this period of silence won’t last long. On June 16, the insider took to Twitter and predicted that the Separate Ways DLC for Resident Evil 4 remake will be unveiled before the year’s end. This suggests that it might even release in early 2024, based on Capcom’s past record of revealing Resident Evil expansions within months or even weeks after their market debut.

Separate Ways, featuring Ada Wong, was a well-received addition to the PS2 port of the original game due to the substantial content it offered. Building on that, Dusk Golem mentioned that the remake’s version of Separate Ways would be quite substantial for a DLC, which has fans eagerly anticipating its release.

While the evidence mounts in favor of a Separate Ways announcement, it’s still unclear if this will be the final DLC for the Resident Evil 4 remake. The original 2005 game included one last bonus mode called Assignment: Ada, which theoretically would be easier to remake since it was shorter than Separate Ways.

However, Assignment: Ada is a non-canon experience that isn’t high on fans’ wish lists for future Resident Evil 4 DLC. Therefore, it remains uncertain if Capcom will invest the effort into reimagining it, especially considering there have been no indications that Assignment: Ada is part of the Resident Evil 4 remake’s roadmap.
