Resi 2 remake’s producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi told Japanese website Game Watch [translated by Gear Nuke] that Capcom agreed to do the remake because it’s what the fans kept asking for.

And let’s face it, with the game absolutely smashing players’ expectations, it’d be silly to not continue down the remake road…

One industry insider is already claiming the game is in production. ResetEra moderator Dusk Golem recently commented on a Resi thread claiming that the third game in the franchise is already in development, which is definitely exciting to hear.

On the thread, which you can read in full here, Golem writes: “I’m keeping my lips sealed on anything else so don’t ask, but REmake 3 is in full development right now…

“I think beyond that they’re waiting to see how REmake 2 and REmake 3 perform, but REmake 2 almost assuredly is going to perform well.”

When asked about his sources, Golem didn’t give anything away, but he’s been right about a lot of Resident Evil things in the past, including the DLC leak for Resident Evil 7.

Watch this space for more on the supposed remake…

If it’s all down to how much players enjoy the new remake, then it sounds like fans may be in luck. The game has reportedly shipped more than three million copies in its first week, and it’s received glowing reviews across the board.
