Capcom announced through the official Resident Evil Japanese Twitter account that development for a VR Mode for the Resident Evil 4 remake started. It will be a free game mode available only for owners of the PlayStation VR 2 headset. The base Resident Evil 4 remake will release on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on March 24, 2023.
Here’s the official announcement:

More information on when Resident Evil 4 VR Mode will release will come at a later date.
This is not to be confused with the existing Resident Evil 4 VR. It is a completely different title and project. It came out on October 21, 2021 for Oculus Quest 2, and is a VR adaptation of the original RE4.
It isn’t the only entry in the series with upcoming PSVR 2 compatibility. Capcom recently showcased a new gameplay trailer of its Resident Evil Village free VR Mode DLC. That VR Mode does not support the Winters Expansion, which added the option to play the game in third person.
While RE Village is originally a first-person mode, Resident Evil 4 uses a third person perspective, so we have yet to see how this VR Mode will play.
Resident Evil 4 remake will release for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on March 24, 2023. The RE4 remake VR Mode will be exclusive to the PlayStation VR 2, for the PS5. There is no information on when the supplemental VR Mode will release.
