Capcom Appears To Be Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake
Given the success of the recent Resident Evil 2 remake, it’s not mind blowing that Capcom might be working on the sequel, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. After all, the two take place around the same time as one another, so they sort of go hand in hand. Well, we might be getting our wish, as the Resident Evil Twitter page just dropped a subtle hint for those savvy enough to pick up on it.
While some fans began speculating right after the release of the RE2 remake, that speculation has been renewed after a series of seemingly related tweets on the official RE Twitter account over the past few days. Resident Evil 2 is one of the best games of the year, and it’s left fans of the franchise begging publisher Capcom for a remake of the third game in the series. Of course, there’s no definitive proof of that just yet – but a seemingly innocuous tweet from the horror franchise’s official Twitter account has certainly set the rumour mill into motion.
Capcom’s first Resident Evil 3 tease appeared on April 15, 2019. It began with a screenshot showing Jill in the Resident Evil remake. It asked, “Ever feel like somebody’s watching you…?” This is a reference to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, which has Jill stalked by Nemesis, who she frequently encounters throughout the game.

It’s not a confirmation or anything, but it seems like a no-brainer that Capcom is working on the next entry, which will hopefully run exactly like RE2. This could also buy the studio more time as it works on a possible Resident Evil 8, which hasn’t been officially revealed, but is also likely in development.
Capcom seems to be on an upward trajectory, as many of its recent projects have been met with critical and commercial success. Titles like Resident Evil 7, Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy have been praised by many. Oh and of course, Resident Evil 2.
It wouldn’t be surprising if Resident Evil 3: Nemesis were to be officially revealed soon, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. For now, we can still enjoy the vast library of aforementioned Capcom games. Or maybe you fancy the newly announced Capcom Home Arcade, a plug-in-play arcade fight stick with 16 classic Capcom games.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake.
