It looks like Capcom is currently working on a Resident Evil 3 remake, which will probably be released next year in 2020. YouTube user Spawn Wave and Eurogamer both report that they have heard from different sources that the studio wants to make a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.
This probably comes from the fact that Capcom stated that they want to take a look and explore more remakes after the Resident Evil 2 coming out this year since the game was so popular and successful. It sold more than 3 million copies on Xbox One, PS4, and P.C. – and that, in its first week on the market.
Resident Evil 3 originally was released for PS1 back in 1999. The game follows Jill Valentine, who returns from the first game when she tries to escape Raccoon City during a zombie outbreak, which started in Resident Evil 2. The events of the third game of the series take place before, during, and after Resident Evil 2.
Jill is using the Nemesis the entire time. Nemesis is a new biological weapon, the Umbrella Corporation makes that in order to hunt down those remained members of S.T.A.R.S. The gun is not entirely different than the Tyrant in Resident Evil 2, but it sure is deadlier because not only it’s faster, but it’s also stronger and a piece of smarter equipment.
As per Eurogamer’s sources, we might not get much official information about the Resident Evil 3 remake, because right now, Capcom has its focus on the multiplayer spin-off Project Resistance. We have always talked about the next Resident Evil game, and we asked ourselves what is it going to be: a remake or a sequel. It seems we’re getting both, actually. But again, take the info with a pinch of salt, these are all rumors.
