Capcom News PS5 Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil CODE: Veronica Resident Evil Remakes

More Resident Evil Remakes Are Coming, But Capcom Isn’t Saying Which Game Is Being Remade Next

Capcom has officially confirmed that it will continue to develop Resident Evil remakes following the success of Resident Evil 2 (2019), Resident Evil 3 (2020) and Resident Evil 4 (2023).

Speaking at the PlayStation partner awards in Japan this week, Resident Evil 4 Remake director Yasuhiro Anpo was asked if Capcom has plans to continue revamping older Resident Evil games, to which he confirmed this would indeed be the case. However, he wasn’t ready to share which title will be given the remake treatment next.

Yes. We’ve released three remakes so far and they have all been received very well. Since it allows a modern audience to play these games, it is something I am happy to do as someone that loves these older games, and we want to continue doing more. What game we will remake in the future is something that we would like to announce in the future, so please look forward to it.

When developing a new game, there is no way to know what will be received well by the players, which makes it difficult. In the case of a remake, there are already players that have played the original, which I think can be seen as an advantage. We are very grateful to users that are vocal about their opinion. It allows us to develop with the player’s opinion in mind. For example, if this is how the players feel, then maybe we can make it like this. I think this is one of the reasons why our remakes are so well received.

If Capcom were to follow the series in chronological order, then Resident Evil 5 would be the next remake. However, many fans, myself included, think Resident Evil CODE: Veronica should be remake next, as it’s an important part of the story and heavily features major characters including Claire, Chris and Wesker. It’s also by far the most dated of the mainline games (at least in comparison to RE5), having originally launched back in 2000 and would hugely benefit from a modern overhaul.

With the Resident Evil series celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2026, we could see Capcom instead deciding to remake the original game. While Resident Evil has already been revamped, it hasn’t been given the modern over-the-shoulder treatment in the RE Engine that RE2 and 3 received.
