Operation Backlog Completion 2024

On Monday, when I reviewed the remake of Resident Evil 2, I mentioned being excited for a potential Resident Evil 3 remake in the same style.

Well, RE3make might be on the way after all!

The possibility of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis being remade has been in the air ever since Resident Evil 2’s remake came out and the producer said they would likely remake Resident Evil 3 if there was enough demand.

(For that matter, fans were discussing the possibility of an RE3make before RE2make was even out.)

The two games take place around the same time, during the outbreak in Raccoon City, so Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are seen as companion games to some extent. You even briefly enter the police station in Resident Evil 3.

Yesterday, the Youtube channel Spawn Wave reported a rumor that RE3make is currently in development with a planned 2020 release. After the video came out, VGC said sources have told them the same thing.

Eurogamer then reported on the rumor, saying they have also heard RE3make is in development and their sources believe “it has been in development for some time.”

Being in development for a while now would fit with Spawn Wave’s report that Capcom hopes to get the game out in time for 2020.

I didn’t enjoy Resident Evil 3 as much as REmake or Resident Evil 2, but playing RE2make really left me excited for how Nemesis might be handled in a remake. I hope these rumors are true, I hope we hear something soon (possibly at the Video Game Awards), and I hope RE3make is as excellent as its predecessor.

What do you think? Is a Resident Evil 3 remake in development already?
