With the world and zombie dog hopping on the Resident Evil 2 remake bandwagon, Resident Evil 3 was almost a certainty, albeit many were concerned that following it up so quickly will be impossible without delays. Well, Capcom promises otherwise.
Speaking to Famitsu, Resident Evil 3 producers Peter Fabiano and Masao Kawada confirmed that this will not be the case. Asked whether the launch date came too quickly, they said, "In fact, Master Rom is almost completed. I promise that there will be no delay."
Much like with Resident Evil 2's remake before it, RE3's remake had a lot to do with the army of devoted fans spamming Capcom's headquarters with letters. In fact, the dev said earlier that there will be no RE3 remake without fan support , so it's pretty clear the fans were quite vocal. Again.
Fabiano said, "Like Kawada's RE: 2, the remake of Bio 3 received a lot of requests from fans. Development has started in response. I was convinced that RE: 2 was a great success and that it was still desired."
As you probably know already, RE3's remake will launch with Resident Evil: Resistance, which the two claim will complement the former's singleplayer orientation, what with Resistance being an asymmetric 4v1 multiplayer.
Asked how the two fit together, Kawada replied, "As an impact, RE: 3 may be bigger, but I feel that the Resistance has been enjoyed by many people through the Tokyo Game Show 2019 and the closed beta test. I think that it will be a work that can be enjoyed for a long time by playing both.
