According to Capcom, cumulative sales of the games in the series total 94 million units since the first title debuted in 1996.
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.
Capcom also confirmed that RE3 will include the full version of Resident Evil Resistance, the multiplayer spin-off which went into closed beta in October.
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.
