Project Update: Good News and Not-So-Good News (For Now)

Hi everyone.
 
This isn’t a standard update in the sense that I’m not sharing new screenshots. We have two items of news to share: one good, one temporarily not-so-good. 
 
Here is the really fast version:
 
1. The good: We have determined that we will release the Castle section once the remaining revisions are complete. We expect that this can happen within the next 3-5 months.
 
2. The not-so-good: Due to personal circumstances, I (Cris) will need to pause my work on the project for the next few months. Regardless, the project will continue via Albert’s efforts until I can return.
 
Here are a few more details re: #2:
  • I have been made aware by my employer that my position in the company is most likely going to be eliminated in January next year
  • As a result, I need to focus on finding a new job either with my current employer or with another company
  • Additionally, I need to complete some certifications within my field that will hopefully make me more marketable if I do end up needing to find a job with another company
  • At the same time, I’m seeing this time period as an opportunity to pursue a few business ideas that I’ve been thinking about for some time
  • Regardless of how this pans out (whether it’s a new job at my current company, a new company, or something else entirely) I strongly look forward to returning to the project once my job and income situation has been sorted out
  • Albert will continue working on the project as he has been, without interruption (his next update is coming in the next 1-2 days, and I think you’ll like it :))
  • You will still see me commenting from time to time, responding to emails, updating certain pages on the site, and other minor activities.
I’m sorry for having to step back temporarily. If you have any questions, please let me know. And thank you, everyone, for your encouragement these past 2 years.
 
Thank you!
– Cris

    I hope the best for you in finding a new opportunity, Cris! I’ve been following this project for a long time, and the amount of work that you and Albert have put into this has been absolutely incredible. I’m honestly surprised you both have made it this far without having taken a serious break at least once already. So good on you for communicating out to your followers that you need some time to get your life on track for where you want to be in the future.

    Hopefully this new year brings new (and better) opportunities for you!

      Sometimes I’m surprised too when I reflect on the past 2 years. 🙂 I’ve been fortunate that my life circumstances allowed for the work to continue as smoothly as it has for so long. Thank you for the kind words and understanding!

    This news is not good,
    well I can not really say much since I’m still a student, but I wish you the best of luck and that you can get the job you want and if possible better paid.
    From the beginning I have supported the project, but if I can be of help in the project do not hesitate to contact me.
    Regards and again I wish you the best of luck Cris.

    • Cris says:

      Thank you very much! Your username always stands out to me when you comment (because it’s all caps and it’s fun to say in my head). 🙂 I will keep folks updated periodically on progress as time passes. Thanks again!

    Best of luck Cris.

    News on the Castle section is always welcome.

    • Cris says:

      Thank you! I look forward to everyone’s feedback as they download and play through it. It really is a beautiful location and we’ve done our best to remaster it in a way that is true to the original.

  5. Frank Nitty says:

  6. Vlad says:

    Good luck bud <3

  7. Majora says:

    It will work out. We’ll all be here patiently waiting. Just take all the time you need, Cris!

  8. Alvare says:

    Don’t know what to say about this
    But I Guess I’ll just wish you luck Cris.

    That.. was an accidental rhyme.

  9. Nelson says:

    We know all efforts and time that you and Albert put in this project, so this is a deserved break (?).
    I wish you the greatest luck at you new path Cris! 😀

  10. Tony B says:

    i hey i just wanna apologize in advance if anyone already mentioned this but…

    on Leon’s RPD uniform he has a Racoon City patch on both sides of his shoulders. However, the left shoulder has the patch reversed – clearly indicated by the reversed text “Racoon City”

  12. Slug Camargo says:

    Man, it goes without saying: Putting food on the table and paying the bills should be your absolute priority. Good luck with that.

    Come to think of it, Capcom should be paying your bills at the very least, really.

  13. Steven says:

    Cris, I have a very good feeling your life will pull through. You can’t count on faith alone though, so do your best to succeed in your endeavors. Considering your commitment to this project so far I’d say that speaks a bit about your character and thus why I think you’ll be fine.

    I already know Albert will be just fine while you are on hiatus, his commitment to this project is already extraordinary. I have even more faith that he will continue with the same standards as we’ve come to expect.

    So good luck to both of you, but remember: you make your own luck.

    • Cris says:

      You’re right – and right now I’m feeling pretty confident about how things will turn out. And I totally agree with your last statement! 🙂

  14. Kaludio says:

    you have showed lots of dedication and hard work with this project, I’m sure many companies would be glad to have you on board. I wish you good luck and may you find a awesome job xD

  15. Sergey Tokarev says:

    I wish you luck, Cris. Take all the time you need to deal with your life’s problems.
    And best wishes to Albert as well.

  16. ArkStrike says:

    Good luck with finding a new job! You two have done an amazing work so I hope life gives you a breather when you need it, might try contacting CAPCOM while you are at it xD

  17. Welsh says:

    Keep your chin up and soldier through the pain.

    Best of luck Chris.

  26. Michael says:

    Hey guys I just want to take the time to say that I think that what you both are doing is incredible I myself am not a pc gamer as I prefer console gaming but resident evil 4 is one of my favourites I wish the developers had took as much time to add half the detail to the graphics as you guys have because in my opinion the Re4 hd remaster or upscale should I say was very disappointing so hats off to you both you are doing a great job and look forward to seeing the finished product
