​“Numerous Titles Currently Being Developed” With The Resident Evil Engine

​“Numerous Titles Currently Being Developed” With The Resident Evil Engine

The latest Resident Evil games, Resident Evil 7 and the Resident Evil 2 Remake, have been a masterclass of horror. Stuffed with creatures that make my skin crawl and gore that makes me want to empty my stomach, the games are supported by the newly developed RE Engine. Clearly a great many technicians have put a lot of time into making things every surface in those games look slick and mildly sordid.

Now while engine chat can be a little tiresome, an engine doesn't make a game good or bad, it is merely a toolbox, Capcom's company president and chief operating officer Haruhiro Tsujimoto has confirmed it has "numerous titles currently being developed internally with the RE Engine". While those games could be anything, there's a higher than nil chance that those titles might include a Resident Evil 3 Remake and a Resident Evil 8.

After all, Resident Evil 2 shipped more than 4 million copies and Capcom is quoted in its recent financial report as saying it "exceeded expectations". And Resi 7 got a shout out as being a high-performing catalogue title.

Maybe Capcom would skip ahead to Resident Evil 4, but there's a lot of love for Nemesis (personally, I'd want them to go to Resident Evil 3 before moving on to Resi 4. It would be lovely to have a full set of remade Resi games to play with).

Capcom is also thinking about next generation through all of this. "The games we developed using the RE Engine during this current hardware generation have received critical acclaim, and from the early stages of building this engine, we kept the ability to augment it for next-generation development in mind; as such, we view the RE Engine as one of our strengths that will contribute to next-generation game creation," Tsujimoto said.
