Resident Evil 2 Remake Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi recently explained why Capcom decided to remake the game, as well as commenting on the possibility of remaking Resident Evil 3, which they have hinted at in the past.
In an interview with GameWatch, Hirabayashi was asked that since Resident Evil 2 (1998) and Resident Evil 3 (1999) were supplementary titles released a year apart from each other taking place in the same city using many of the same elements, if there was a possibility of using the similar elements they incorporated in Resident Evil 2 Remake for a possible remake of Resident Evil 3.
Hirabayashi commented that Resident Evil 2 was remade after 21 years because fans continued to tell them that they wanted a remake. They couldn’t possibly remake Resident Evil 3 without the fans’ permission, so if players really enjoy the remake of Resident Evil 2 and voice their enthusiasm then we could use that as a good indicator.
