With Resident Evil 3 Remake nearly out, fans of the series are preparing themselves for another survival-horror adventure. Yet, according to some reports, it seems that Capcom is preparing for its next repeat adventure, as it has been revealed that the company is allegedly working on another remake.
The information about the potential remake comes from website Video Games Chronicle (VGC) in which it has reported that Resident Evil 3 Remake‘s credits show former PlatinumGames CEO Tatsuya Minami as an important figure behind the game. Specifically, the credits name Minami as the executive producer of the remake on behalf of M-Two Inc., a company that was founded by Minami and financially backed by Capcom. Another thing worth mentioning is that M-Two Inc. was founded by Minami after he resigned from his CEO role at PlatinumGames in 2016, and how it has been active for over a year now. Additionally, it’s understood that M-Two Inc. is considered to be technically independent.
Aside from listing Minami’s name in the credits, Resident Evil 3 Remake also names a handful of other M-Two Inc. employees like designer Tsutomu Teranishi who worked with Minami on the Mega Man series. On top of that, the credits mention PlatinumGames veteran Kiyohiko Sakata who was game director of the remake (he was also a programmer for the first four Resident Evil games and lead coder for Resident Evil 4).
However, M-Two Inc. was primarily a support studio for Resident Evil 3 Remake, and as VGC understands it, is currently working as the main developer on a much bigger remake for Capcom. It’s not exactly clear what the remake is, but according to additional sources (who have a proven track record of being accurate), the remake will not be Dino Crisis nor Resident Evil – Code: Veronica. Additionally, the remake is planned for 2022 which means that it will take longer to develop and that it will be available for next-generation consoles.
As for what the possible remake might be, Resident Evil 4 could be considered a contender, especially with how different it is from previous installments. There is also a chance that that the remake might not necessarily be Resident Evil-related, but something totally different.
