I don't see why they would move to a remake again when they been obviously developing a 'new'RE since 7 ended, i assume Capcom is not that run out of ideas

New game for me, I'm more hyped about a Resident Evil 8 or Revelations 3 than a Remake 3. But Resident Evil is a fantastic series and I am going to be happy with whatever they announce next

If you're gonna do as much work as we saw in RE2 2019 (which was an extremely new game that I loved), I'd rather have the game be based on a new scenario.

I would like a remake to code Veronica & Nemesis. There’s millions of new game players that haven’t experienced the greatness of older RE games and Capcom should do those first.

Re8 should be the last RE of next gen I think. Go all out. VR, new protagonist, a mercenaries mode, a perfect blend of survival horror & action.

Isn't RE7 and RE2 Remake developed by different teams? If so, it makes sense that RE8 would be the next one.

I also wouldn't mind if they made RE3 remake. They could introduce a new and improved Carlos, flesh out his story and have it play out concurrently to Jill's campaign, similar to Leon and Claire's campaigns in RE2. If you recall, Carlos was handled similarly to Ada in Leon's campaign in that you would take control of him during certain sections of the campaign.

In my ideal world, RE3 remake would set up an RE8 where Ethan joins Chris, Jill and Carlos at the new Umbrella. It would make sense that Chris would recruit people he trusts to right Umbrella's wrongs and it would also be a way to transition Chris, Jill and others to a new group eventually.

You are not getting one or the other

Eventually i believe we are gonna see RE8and REmake 3, they been making a 'new' RE since 7 ended (though Rev3 and CV may not come, could be something else instead 🤔)

I would like a direct sequel to RE8 with VR support. Imo it's one of, if not the best RE game out there. All they need to do is fully embrace the personality of 7 and they will deliver one of the greatest survival horror games ever made. I stand by the fact that the problems RE7 had came from sticking too much to the RE formula. That boring ship is straight out of revelations. The cave shooting gallery is just delivering the endgame power fantasy that every RE game has had before. Introducing Chris only caused drama among the people who want to fuck RE characters. Elsa got it right. Let it go. You can even drop the RE name if you want, just give me more of the first half of 7 in 8.

As for remakes, I have a tough time thinking about any RE game outside of 1 and 2 that I think needs a remake. If 3 does comes out and it has the action trappings of 4/5, I will be very disappointed. They nailed the the classic RE formula with remake 2. If they don't give me that again, and introduce timed button press dodges and fighting moves, it's an easy pass. I really wish Capcom would just make a huge RE mercenaries game that features the 4/5 mechanics. They are fun, but they hardly lead themselves to what a survival horror experience should be.

Different directors/producers (outside of Kanda), but REmake 2's team was composed of Resident Evil HD Remaster's, REV2's and 7's staff.

People from every corner of Division 1 went to help on the project eventually, tho most of them left as soon as their duties were fulfilled. If you're looking for individuals in high positions tho, the only ones i'm aware outside what i mentioned above are: Tomonori Takano (concept artist), Wataru Hachisako (audio director) and Yuji Higashimaya (sound designer).

Should be noted that many employees work on multiple projects at once (RE7, DMCV, REmake 2 and even MHW which is Division 2).

Am I the only one who hated all three control schemes in RE2make?

It's so clunky. RE4 tank controls were fine, no need to make them super floaty

RE8 done REmake 2 style. I wouldn’t mind seeing first person again but REmake 2 did what I kind of wanted to see next from the series (puzzle box style mixed with the action gameplay style) and I can’t help but wonder how that style might work out for a brand new game in the series.

I wouldn’t mind REmake 3 either but it’s kinda like following Crash N.Sane Trilogy the revival with a Team Racing Remake. It’s cool, but less exciting to me than something brand new.

If they do an R3make, I hope its much more ambitious than RE2R. I'd imagine it being open linear like Dark Souls 1 with the interior locations acting like dungeons which are designed like some of the smaller RE locations like the sewers, guest house, lab etc. Zombies should respawn in the outdoor locations and there should be crimson heads, lickers and evolved lickers just roaming around the city. Even without the burning mechanic.

I would like them alternate sequels and remakes.
8 > 3 remake > 9 > Code Veronica remake > 10

I hope they get around to doing a true remake of RE4 eventually. They can probably skip Zero.

That sounds really, really cool. So of course it won’t be anything like that. But I really hope they do Raccoon City more justice than back alleys and small streets. Still bummed they cut out an hour in the city in RE2 before reaching the station, that could’ve been amazing.

I am pissed too about that since they even tease some cool locations in the intro like the subway, which I believe was only in the Outbreak games. Ideally, I would love R3make start from Jills highrise apartment where she has to escape to the outside because her building is overrun by zombies.

Resident Evil 2 Remake was one of the most exciting games in *years* for me, and other than a couple minor issues it was kind of the perfect video game. I played through it four times, which isn't something I can say very often about any game these days.

For that reason, I just want more. I always loved Resident Evil 3, I thought it had a great concept and hook, and seeing it realized with modern graphics and Capcom magic makes me more than a little excited. Even though it's a known quantity to a certain extent, I find this far more appealing than the idea of another game in the mold of RE7. RE7 was a good game with a spectacular first half, but it never really felt like a Resident Evil game to me. They should have just called it something else and let the two series run parallel. Other than the name and some UI elements (and a silly boss event later on in the game) nothing about it felt anything like RE. There's no reason to call it RE.

If Capcom's making REmake 3 it should be cross-gen and come out next year or soonish. I want RE8 to be next-gen only and be a technical masterpiece.

I imagine that RE8 is next maybe year 1 or 2 of the new console closely followed by RE3 remake a year or so after.

regardless why choose one or the other when we can have both and probably will have both

A bit too soon, given how recent RE7 was. I really don't get the complaints on remakes, given how old most of these games are. All of the original games are from the last century. That is more than good enough for a remake, and then we can talk about sequels.

remake 3 please, I love that era of resi games and maybe I'm the only one that wants this ..but change the ending of 3 so that more games can take place in that location (trying to be vague)

I'm more interested in an original title than RE3Make*

But it doesn't have to be a traditional sequel. I'd be happy with a prequel. One of the great things about being trapped in the Baker mansion was the lack of modern technology and weaponry and I'd love that vibe to returb, as well as original characters.

*Unless it's RE1 remade for PSVR2 and its next gen motion controllers.

Honestly if done right and with good Co-Op mechanics I wouldn't mind them remaking Zero.

Online/Couch Co-Op - Boss fights that encourage problem solving/teamwork mechanics etc.

Could work, plus it's always nice to see Wesker/Birkin again.

Yeah, I hope they start in her apartment too, like make it an actual level before reaching the city.

Is there even any indication that RE8 will be keeping the FPV of RE7? I get the feeling that RE7 will remain the only game to feature that perspective.

As for a new game, I want the timeline to move away from the future and back to the past. I want games that take place no later than the Raccoon City incident, but preferably as early as the 60s, 70s and 80s. Part of REmake's appeal to me is the year it's set in - it feels old and antiquated and I love it. I cannot imagine how much more exciting it would be to explore Resident Evil even decades before the first game.
