I was lurking era like a madman back then for any re2 news, and I never saw dusk swearing about anything. He said it was considered and worked on, which capcom verified on some interviews later on. He also knew about Sekiro.
Whether he is narcisistic or not is irrelevant. The man is legit.
It might be happening.... You never know. We'll see at The Game Awards if anything germane gets unveiled there.
The question is : when are they going to unveil the surprise title that Jun Takeuchi (head of Capcom Development Division 1 => the people who made RE Revelations 2, RE7, RE2Remake and DMC5) teased back in December 2018 during an interview with famitsu? Takeuchi said that the title would surprise people and make the go like "Wow! They're really making that one?!"
Capcom may have one more surprise in store for us horror fans!
DuskGolem claimed that the surprise title wasn't RE related. His words were "Just to add speculation and flavor to what he said a bit, the surprise title he’s talking about is not a Resident Evil game, and is pretty far along in development. Almost assuredly going to be announced next year and released the year after."
In an interview with Famitsu, veteran Capcom producer Jun Takeuchi speaks about Division 1's new initiative, starting with RE7 in 2017, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5. He also highlights some of the improvements RE Engine comes with on their new titles. (Please note that this is a...
So whatever is going on with that? One year has passed, and our last hope is the Game Awards.
On the other hand, back in February 2016, Onimusha discussions were held at higher levels within Capcom Japan. Who knows if those internal debates spawned a new Onimusha project.
Capcom executives have not forgetting about the Onimusha series. Onimusha, the classic PS2 action franchise that’s been dormant for years, could one day be revitalised. That’s according to legendary producer Yoshinori Ono, who said that Capcom higher-ups are in fact talking about the franchise...
Moreover, in December 2017 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 anytime soon, they replied the following :
And it would make sense, as RE3 has a lot more exterior locations than REmake 2 (a lot of them at the beginning didn’t even make the cut from the original) and it’s more a dev’s headache since there’s a lot more to consider and program, usually
Plus I’m going to go on a limb and say that most fans expect even more from a RE3 remake after 2, and personally I can’t wait to roam the streets of Racoon City that are not crazy weird streets made of corridors, like most of them in the original RE3
If they can build a very decent-sized small town in 2017 in The Evil Within 2, I see no reason Capcom can’t get more than corridors-streets this time around
RE3make makes sense. Capcom's been able to re-release every major game in the series except 2 and 3 due to them being so outdated. 2 sold well so why not do 3? The 2020 part never sounded realistic since I'm sure they didn't start until seeing how RE2make sold.
That said, I'm hesitant to get hyped until seeing what they do with Jill. Claire in RE2make didn't look or behave like classic Claire. Hoping to see Julia Voth return for RE3make.
According to interviews with the JP developers-team of RE2Remake, they said they were planning to release the game on its 20th anniversary (i.e. January 2018) but they ended up on its 21st instead.
So it could be possible for RE3Remake to follow suite. Its 20th anniversary was 22 September 2019, so I'd say Semptember 2020 for RE3 Remake.
Speaking to GameWatch, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi (who worked on 2019's RE2) stated that as long as fans "voiced their enthusiasm," the company would look at updating the third game in the series .
