According to Capcom, cumulative sales of the games in the series total 94 million units since the first title debuted in 1996.
The Resident Evil 2 remake was named VGC’S 2019 Game of the Year.
On Tuesday Capcom announced its latest remake, Resident Evil 3, which has been recreated inside its RE Engine and will release in April 2020.
Originally released for PlayStation in 1999, Resident Evil 3 follows Jill Valentine as she attempts to escape Raccoon city in the immediate aftermath of the virus outbreak, before the events of Resident Evil 2.
Developed by Capcom in partnership with Devil May Cry HD Collection studio NeoBards, Project Resistance is described as an asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game combining cooperative and competitive dynamics.
Resident Evil 2 is being partly developed by M-Two Inc, a new studio backed by Capcom, VGC sources claim.
An M-Two Inc logo is visible at the end of the Resident Evil 3 trailer.
