Rumor: Resident Evil 3 Release Date Leaks, Won't Be Developed by Capcom

rumor: capcom will announce new game at microsoft e3 2019 press conference

Prior to the launch of Resident Evil 7, a Twitter user known as Dusk Golem/AestheticGamer, leaked a lot of information about the game that turned out to be accurate. Now Dusk Golem is at it again, leaking information about the unannounced Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake, which will apparently launch sooner than expected.

According to Dusk Golem, the Resident Evil 3 remake release date will be in 2020, and Capcom will unofficially be "annualizing" the Resident Evil franchise, meaning it will likely come in January 2020. This would mark one year since the launch of the Resident Evil 2 remake and line up well with how the original games were released on the PS1. However, Dusk Golem also revealed some information that may make fans concerned about the Resident Evil 3 remake.

If Dusk Golem's source is accurate, the Resident Evil 3 remake isn't being developed by Capcom. Instead the company decided to outsource Resident Evil 3's development to a third-party studio, and while who is developing it is "very interesting," Dusk Golem stopped short of revealing the studio behind the remake. Dusk Golem didn't say it was a bad thing that Capcom isn't making the Resident Evil 3 remake itself, but some fans will still be disappointed to learn the team behind the critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 2 is supposedly working on a different project instead.

As to who could be developing the Resident Evil 3 remake, that's up in the air. Capcom has partnered with a long list of studios over the years, ranging from Ninja Theory to Nintendo, and so it could be almost anyone. One possibility, based purely on speculation, is that Platinum Games could be working on the Resident Evil 3 remake. After all, Platinum is comprised of former Capcom developers, and Platinum's Hideki Kamiya actually visited Capcom last year for unknown reasons, so perhaps a deal was reached between the two companies.

Again, that's just speculation at this time, and fans should take all this information with a huge grain of salt. However, Capcom has teased a Resident Evil 3 remake in the past, and it's possible that a reveal could come at E3 with the game launching the following January, just like we saw with Resident Evil 2 last year.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake is rumored to be in development for unspecified platforms.
