Capcom Could Be Working On More Resident Evil Remakes

Going by a user survey, we should suspect that the Japanese company could be doing more remakes in the franchise, but since Capcom has a vast back catalogue, they have a lot of options from other IPs.

Capcom’s official Japanese Twitter account (Resident Evil is called Biohazard in that region) shared a survey, where there is a question if we would buy other remakes. There is no other reference to this in the survey, which seems like a blatant way to check user interest, and since it happens in the first days of the business year, it’s obvious that Capcom seems to base its middle-term plans on the user feedback – if the people would support more remakes (which is a trend for Capcom nowadays), then the Japanese company would work on more of them in the long run.

Regarding Resident Evil, two games could be candidates. The first one is the first game, as in that case, Capcom just remastered the GameCube remake a couple of years ago. The other, more realistic option could be Code: Veronica. This title originally launched on the SEGA Dreamcast in 2000 (followed by Code: Veronica X releases on the PlayStation 2 in 2001, on the GameCube in 2003, and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, respectively), and it was meant to be the sequel to Resident Evil 2 (the development started as a failed SEGA Saturn port of RE2), but the third numbered instalment became Jill Valentine’s escape (which was codenamed Biohazard 1.9…). (Plot-wise, this is the fourth game, though: we’re three months after the events of RE2 and RE3.)

Capcom could also take care of other franchises, such as Dino Crisis. Its first game could be getting an outstanding remake if it used the RE Engine. However, all we can do is wait now – rumours say that Resident Evil 8, which was meant to be Resident Evil Revelations 3, could be revealed this month.

You can find the survey here, although it is meant for the Asian region.
