I'm pretty sure the route they were taking that in was that Leon was hallucinating from the effects of the progenitor virus, which I imagine most likely had different properties in the beta. We did see him hallucinate, after all, in one or two cutscenes in the finished title. I think it would've made a great stand-alone title, but it looks more like a Clocktower game than a RE or SH game.
the one that become dmc was the very first intended development of 4, the second development phrase was the dubbed the Fog Version, the third was this "The Hooked Man Version" and the fourth was never shown publicly and the fifth which is the 4 we know today

I think the reason why Capcom refuses to develop games into real horror anymore is because of these three games.
1. Resident Evil (GC)
- when it first came out, critics were mixed. by this time, they were already getting slightly frustrated with tank controls in a fixed camera environment. - it's a GC title. It was stupid for Capcom to make a game for GC and thought it would sell more than 1mil. There simply wasn't enough horror fans with the console because everyone else in the demographic went to PS2. See also RE4 and why it still ended up ported to PS2 anyway.
2. Resident Evil Zero(GC)
-What's there to talk about? lol
3. Haunting Ground/Demento(PS2)
- I LOVE this game, but to this day, I still can't figure out why its sales relatively bombed. This game was crafted with a lot of love because they went all the way to France or some **** to get an actual horror filmmaker to direct the scenes.
Haunting Ground was an enigmatic example, but really, the two REs for Gamecube DON'T. BELONG. IN GC. Deep in their hearts, those execs know that putting big budget into a game that doesn't have too many people liking the genre for the console they bought was a mistake. That's why RE4 still got ported in the first place. If REmake was made for the PS2 instead, I'm willing to bet that the series would have turned out into a wholly different direction from what we're getting now.
Sadly, neither of them will ever be seen outside Nintendo consoles because they are owned by Nintendo.
