Rumor: Capcom To Reportedly Release Resident Evil 3 Next Year

Rumors are circulating that a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is in development and is due to be released in 2020.

It seems that fans won't have to wait long to return to Raccoon City, as rumors are circulating that a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is in development and is due to be released in 2020.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was originally released for the PlayStation in 1999. The story followed Jill Valentine from the original Resident Evil as she attempted to escape from the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, which was shown in greater detail in Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was originally meant to be a spin-off instead of a numbered sequel, with the intention that Resident Evil - Code Veronica would be the third game in the series, but Capcom wanted to keep the numbers of the PlayStation games consistent.

There has been a lot of speculation that a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis would follow the remake of Resident Evil 2. According to Video Game Chroniclethere are several sources within the industry confirming that a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is currently in development and will launch in 2020.

The quick turnaround for the Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the original game reused a lot of the assets of Resident Evil 2. The two games shared many of the same locations and enemies, including the police station that took up the bulk of Resident Evil 2's story. The Resident Evil 2 remake already increased the scope of the original game, so it would be easy for a remake of its sequel to do the same. This could help it escape the rehashing accusations that the original version of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis faced upon release.

Resident Evil 2 was a huge success for Capcom, it would make sense for the company to want to follow it up with a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The Nemesis tyrant from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is also one of the most popular monsters from the series, and fans have been waiting to see its return in something outside of a crossover. The 2019 Game Awards are only a few weeks away and it's possible that a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis could be one of the major announcements made during the show.
