Capcom to “explore” possibility of more remakes and re-releases post Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil 2 developers Capcom mentioned they’re going to be making more remakes and re-releases in the future in their quarterly earnings call.

The upcoming survival horror title Resident Evil 2, which releases in early January next year, is the second game in the series to get a remake with the first being the original. Looks like Capcom is willing to remake more of the titles, Resident Evil 3 next maybe? It would certainly complete the PS1 releases and wrap up the Racoon City saga.

Further, regarding remakes and re-releases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP,

This notion could also be for other popular IPs owned by the Japanese developer, what game would you like to be remade?

Furthermore the company also mentioned that Resident Evil 2 is expected to be ‘million-seller,’ and was given a budget to fulfill that intention. Makes sense, the game looks really amazing with what we’ve seen of so far.

Resident Evil 2 releases on January 25 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A collector’s edition is also available for pre-order.
