The Resident Evil 2 Remake remains one of the year’s most beautiful looking games, and Capcom is using its RE Engine for a bunch of unannounced projects.
Capcom has told investors that they have “numerous” games cooking in the oven using the Resident Evil 2 Remake graphics engine. Could one of these games be Resident Evil 3?
The Resident Evil 2 Remake was launched back in January, and it’s still one of the best-looking games of the year.
Resident Evil 7 (the best entry in the long-running series) and Devil May Cry 5 also utilised the RE Engine, and they both provided stunning and realistic visuals, too.
Fans will be happy to hear that Capcom is using the graphics engine for a number of unannounced games, and it’s likely one of them is a retelling of Resident Evil 3.
Capcom is developing “numerous” titles with Resident Evil 2’s graphics engine
Capcom has posted a Q/A session held with investors about their fiscal year results and their upcoming plans. One of the questions asked was about the RE Engine and how Capcom intends to use it for developing next-generation games for the PlayStation 5 and other consoles.
“The games we developed using the RE ENGINE during this current hardware generation have received critical acclaim, and from the early stages of building this engine, we kept the ability to augment it for next-generation development in mind; as such, we view the RE ENGINE as one of our strengths that will contribute to next-generation game creation.”
When asked how many projects are currently in development, Capcom responded by saying that “there are numerous titles currently being developed internally with the RE ENGINE.”
Although it’s by no means confirmed, one of these games is likely to be a remake of Resident Evil 3. There were rumours that it was already in development before Resident Evil 2 was even launched, and there is more gossip that Capcom won’t launch Resident Evil 8 before Nemesis.
As for the other games, one of them must be the project director Hideaki Itsuno is working on now that Devil May Cry 5 is finished.
