The tease comes the way of Capcom director Yasuhiro Anpo, who directed Resident Evil 4 Remake. When asked if Capcom was going to keep releasing Resident Evil remakes, Anpo had the following to say:
"Yes. We've released three remakes so far and they have all been received very well. Since it allows a modern audience to play these games, it is something I am happy to do as someone that loves these older games, and we want to continue doing more. What game we will remake in the future is something that we would like to announce in the future, so please look forward to it."
While Resident Evil 5 or Resident Evil – Code: Veronica seem the most likely at this point, it's worth noting that the original game in the series has not received a remake nor has Resident Evil 0. So there are other potential candidates, but it seems unlikely Capcom will return to these two at this point.
As for the next mainline installment in the series -- tenatively dubbed Resident Evil 9 by the Internet -- there's still no word of it. And Anpo did not change this. He made no mention of the next mainline installment. Whether this game will come before the next remake, we don't know. You'd assume so considering we just got Resident Evil 4 Remake, but there's no guarantee of this happening.
As always, feel free to leave a comment or two letting us know what you think. What Resident Evil game would you like to see get the remake treatment next?
