Would it be surprising if Capcom decided to do another remake of a Resident Evil title? No it wouldn't, Resident Evil 2 Remake sold extremely well, so why wouldn't Capcom continue with the nostalgic goodness?

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.

If you remember back to the start of the year, Capcom did say that they would be willing to continue remaking old Resident Evil games if fans want them to -- in other words, if they sold well. Then in March this year a rumor came out that Capcom wasn't going to develop Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake, and that another developer was.

I don't see Capcom handing over the potential Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake to another developer right after the massive success of RE2: Remake. Especially now considering that RE2: Remake has been nominated for Game of the Year.

So when will it release if it even exists? Well, since RE2: Remake is now a Game of the Year nominee for The Game Awards, Capcom could come out swinging and announce Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake at the ceremony for a 2020 release. The rumor from Spawn Wave indicates that the title will launch next year, but doesn't specify when the announcement would be. If I was to guess when Capcom would announce it, I'd say The Game Awards as its a huge stage for them and would tie very nicely into their nomination.
