Rumor: Resident Evil 3 Remake Not Being Developed by Capcom
Resident Evil 2 Remake has been a success in sales, so it seems quite likely that the Resident Evil 3 remake is a priority for Capcom. The latest rumor, however, suggests that those responsible would not be the same team in charge of reviewing the story of Leon and Claire, but an external one.
According to AestheticGamer, a well-known Resident Evil leaker, Resident Evil 3 Remake could arrive in January 2020, just one year after RE2 Remake. How would Capcom get to launch the game so quickly? It would have been developed in parallel to the second and according to the words of AestheticGamer “it’s not being made by the same team that made REmake 2, in fact it’s not even being internally developed by Capcom Division 1 at all.”
AestheticGamer has not revealed who is working on this version, although it implies that the announcement should be known sooner than later. It is unknown if the game would use RE Engine, the technology that debuted in Resident Evil 7 and has been used in Resident Evil 2 Remake or Devil May Cry 5.
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was starring Jill Valentine, one of the protagonists of the first game, and passed simultaneously to Resident Evil 2 -with which she shared some locations-. The game is always remembered by Nemesis, an insistent enemy throughout the adventure that chased us through several rooms and parts of the city, and which we could face at various times.
The series is very important within the plans of Capcom and this source ensures that unofficially it has become annual. After Resident Evil 3 Remake next year, in 2021 it would be Resident Evil 8, which would have been delayed a bit.
There are not more clues about this sequel, which could continue with the view in the first person-type RE7, compatible with virtual reality or in third-person view as the Remake.
