Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake On Target To Launch In 2020

A new rumor has surfaced online from Spawn Wave, who has said that he has received some news privately that Capcom is currently developing the next Resident Evil remake. This remade title is rumored to be the Capcom development pipeline is none other than Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Capcom will follow its successful Resident Evil 2 remake with a new version of Resident Evil 3, a report today suggests. This comes from YouTuber SpawnWave, who said it was on track for a 2020 launch. Video below.

launched in January of this year and proved both a critical and commercial hit, notching up close to 5 million copies sold and becoming the joint-highest reviewed game of the year, sharing the honours with and Disco Elysium.

Back then, Capcom intimated that future such remakes would depend on the success of Resi Evil 2 Remake. Based on its knock-out success, and we have to assume a remake is also much cheaper to make than an all-new game, then Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake always seemed like a safe bet. Having been terrified by Mr. X in RE2 Remake, just the thought of being chased by Nemesis again after all these years is giving me the heebie jeebies.

Resident Evil 3 was released in September 1999 and was officially titled Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. The game follows Jill Valentine in her wildly inappropriate outfit for zombie killing as she tries to escape Raccoon City overrun by a population infected with the T-virus. The game famously introduces the antagonist Nemesis, a villain with questionable veneers who you can never defeat until the final fight – that’s right, even if you seem to evade or beat him during an earlier encounter, that big boy will inevitably smash through a wall like the undead Kool-Aid Man again.

Resident Evil 3 Remake isn’t the only RE in development though. has also been announced but this is an asymmetric 4v1 multiplayer game with a seemingly big focus on combat. Capcom is probably at least kicking around ideas for Resident Evil 8 as well, although we’d imagine that one will be a little further afield.
