The chances of Capcom developing a Resident Evil 3 Remake depend entirely on the fans, says Resident Evil 2 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi.
Speaking with GAME Watch (translated by GearNuke) in a recent interview, Hirabayashi explained that the only reason the team decided to remake Resident Evil 2 in the first place was because fans continued to request it in the years since the original released.
Implying that, if there is enough demand for the title, Capcom would have no particular qualms with a full-blown remake of the 1999 fan favourite; which, perhaps significantly, follows on directly from the events of the second game.

Indeed, in his review of Resident Evil 2, PSU’s Adam Byrne described Capcom’s latest foray into the world of zombies and unscrupulous conglomerates as “a remarkable labour of design, iteration, faithfulness, and adaptation; a masterclass in knowing what to change, how to change it, and what to build upon.”
Even going so far as to say that Resident Evil 2 “emerges from the shadow of its namesake with consummate ease.”
If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, the game is available right now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Just make sure you bring a stiff drink; you’ll need it to steady your nerves whenever the Tyrant shows up.
