Rumour: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake on target to launch in 2020

UPDATE: The cat’s out of the big. Resident Evil 3 Remake is the real deal. The official artwork has just surfaced on the PlayStation Network ahead of any official announcement.

We’ve got multiple pieces of artwork incorporating various packshots for Resident Evil 3, both under that name and under its Japanese pseudonym of Biohazard.

If we had to take a guess, we’d assume Capcom plans to properly unveil Biohazard: RE3 during The Game Awards on December 12th, although there is the off chance this ‘leak’ could accelerate those plans.

It’s only been about 10-11 months since Resident Evil 2 Remake launched so this would represent a remarkably quick turnaround. We’ve got no release date yet with a reveal imminent then a 2020 launch could be likely.

That wasn’t all either. Remember the Project Resistance 4v1 multiplayer game which Capcom revealed a while ago? That’s now officially called Resident Evil Resistance, unsurprisingly. It has very similar titling and art layout to Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Resident Evil Resistance features four survivors working together to battle zombies, tyrants, and other horrors, as well as scavenging gear while trying to make it out alive. The ‘1’ in this 4v1 scenario is a dungeon master of sorts, laying tricks, dropping in enemies, and firing gun turrets, all from the comfort of a CCTV room.

At this point we’d be inclined to guess Resistance is actually a multiplayer component bolted on to Resident Evil 3, although this is nothing more than a hunch. If Capcom wants to avoid trade-ins and other pesky potential losses of earning then this could be a smart value add that injects a little more life into RE3 once the campaign’s wrapped.

Expect to see plenty more on both of these Resident Evil projects shortly.

Original Story: 22-Nov-2019 - Rumour: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake on target to launch in 2020

Multiple sources are reporting with some degree of certainty that a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake is in development and on track to launch at some point in 2020. 

Resident Evil 2 Remake launched in January of this year and proved both a critical and commercial hit, notching up close to 5 million copies sold and becoming the joint-highest reviewed game of the year, sharing the honours with Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers and Disco Elysium.

Back then, Capcom intimated that future such remakes would depend on the success of Resi Evil 2 Remake. Based on its knock-out success, and we have to assume a remake is also much cheaper to make than an all-new game, then Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake always seemed like a safe bet. Having been terrified by Mr. X in RE2 Remake, just the thought of being chased by Nemesis again after all these years is giving me the heebie jeebies.

Anyway, the rumour originated on YouTube channel Spawn Wave but this has subsequently been backed up by sources close to Eurogamer and VGC, among others. 

Resident Evil 3 Remake isn’t the only RE in development though. Project Resistance has also been announced but this is an asymmetric 4v1 multiplayer game with a seemingly big focus on combat. Capcom is probably at least kicking around ideas for Resident Evil 8 as well, although we’d imagine that one will be a little further afield.

What do you reckon then, would you be hyped for a second Resident Evil remake? Or would you prefer to see Capcom focus on an all-new Resident Evil experience? Let us know below!

Resient evil 3 (jap version) was my first game i ever played besides fighting games (tekken, kof, street fighter) in 1999 when i was 15, and i had a blast. I really wanted the remake, and soon i will be here.

I'm now about 3 hours in to the RE2 remake and I'm just completely bored, nothing scary happened, you walk way too slowly and just run back and forth without anything really happening. Not sure if I'm interested in any more RE remakes to be honest.

I ran into 2 zombies that can crawl across the ceiling, I mean I'm past the limit for returning it anyways and the game seems to be very well received overall, I'll definitely keep playing some more.

You probably don't want to hear this but I think the first half of the game is a lot better than the second half

Can’t wait for the nude mods
Don’t really like Nemesis’ new look that much though, something about those teeth, that nose, and that tube on his shoulder...

Imagine this game with Dolby Atmos object based audio support, hearing the slow creepy music flow around you as you're exploring the mansion and everytime you enter a new room you hear the zombies walking and screaming behind walls and objects and you can hear them exactly where they are. Plus you can hear this huge creepy ****er walking around, stalking you or chasing you in a 3D sound system.

Provided you got a Dolby Atmos soundbar (which is cheap) and a few Dolby Atmos enabled speakers on the back... Damn!


If I was Capcom I would enable Dolby Atmos feature for this game, that would increasse the horror level for this game by a lot! And would silence those who're asking for more horror.

Yassss! Resi 1,2,3 and 4th was ok-ish. Even good. Resi 8, 9 and 10 better be to similar formula or BETTER than you know which ones. Don't need no Operation: Racoon crapcity archetypes. 5,6 and 7 need rethinking so, no.

Seems way too early for RE3 so I really hope it isn't a rushed mess, that game is my favourite out of the old ones.
