Well fuck, Capcom has been teasing us like this since last year, they better make at least some remasters happen at this rate.

Now is a good time for a new Breath of fire. Make it with a AA budget on the switch. I bet it would sell.
I'd like it but I just don't know if Capcom's in the market anymore. It's been 17 years since Dragon Quarter and almost 20 since the more traditional IV. They used the brand for a quick mobile cash-in. I think it's dead.

I sometimes joke to my friend who's a big Dino Crisis fan that odds are better for him. At least that genre's still popular. (although ironically that title's on this list too so oh well)

I'd like a breath of fire collection, and a dino crisis remake please.

But at the end of the day this doesn't mean shit. But, there is always the hope this generates enough buzz if it's brought up enough they might realize there is money to be made. As gamers we could get any game anyway we want if the owners of said game think they can turn a profit.

So they renewed a load of their licenses to keep ownership of the IPs. Okay, cool. Out of all of those I'd say the only one that *might* have a chance of actually being a new game is Dino Crisis based purely off the success of the RE remakes.

And even then, that's a stretch; The Dino Crisis games weren't no RE2 or RE franchise in terms of sales. If they did remake it it would purely be to please a vocal minority.

most of those were not trademarks that required renewal though. seems like some might be in a collection. some might be used for merch, maybe a revival.

Even Cory Balrog (God of War Creative Director) is such a sucker for Dino Crisis





Even if they showed some sort of acknowledgement that this franchise is a possibility for revival when Jawmuncher (a long-lasting champion/proponent of the Dino Crisis series) asked Capcom Development Division 1 about the possibility of seeing a new Dino Crisis back in December 2017, it's hard to predict the required shenanigans that must occur within Capcom Japan that will lead to a Dino project being green-lit......

What? The original RE2 sold 4.96 million and the remake just made 5 million.

Dino Crisis ?: 2.4 million and DC2 sold 1.2 million. The third game doesn't even rate meaning it sold less than a million. So classic RE2 sold more than the whole of the Dino Crisis franchise...

Wish Capcom was as interesting and refreshing as they used to be. There was a time when all these franchises were new. Yes, the remakes, re-releases, and continuations of certain franchises are OK, but how about something new? Oh wait, it is 2019, a time when the industry at large is playing it safe.
