Capcom is currently preparing to release the “Resident Evil 2” remake early next year, but it also looks like the developer is already working on another remake. It’s currently being rumored that “Resident Evil 3: Nemesis” is already in development at the studio.

Fans of the “Resident Evil” game series are already discussing on forums where Capcom should go next after the release of the “Resident Evil 2” remake. In one of the Resetera discussions, moderator Dusk Golem claimed that “Resident Evil 3: Nemesis” is already in full development, citing anonymous sources.

“I'm keeping my lips sealed on anything else so don't ask, but REmake 3 is in full development right now,” he said. “I think beyond that they're waiting to see how REmake 2 and REmake 3 perform, but REmake 2 almost assuredly is going to perform well.”

It’s important to point out that Dusk Golem had leaked accurate information about the “Resident Evil” series before. The same moderator was also responsible for leaking information on the Not a Hero DLC for “Resident Evil 7” before it was officially released by Capcom, as pointed out by Game Revolution. However, it’s still wise to take this with a grain of salt.

In addition to sharing the news, Dusk Golem also believes that other remakes of older “Resident Evil” games could also be on the way. “I hope ‘Code Veronica’ happens as I do feel it's the RE game most in need of a remake, but RE3 is the last mainline RE game that needed a version for easier porting in the future,” Dusk Golem wrote. “‘Code Veronica’ I think depends more on how well REmake 2 and REmake 3 does though.”

The “Resident Evil 2” remake has been getting a lot of attention so far and fans are mostly pleased based on what they’ve seen on trailers and other recently released gameplay demos. It’s already widely believed that the game will succeed next year when it officially releases on Jan. 25.

“Resident Evil 3: Nemesis” — released in 1999 — is another game that was very successful at the time of its launch. It’s memorable for having a persistent monster following players all over Raccoon City. With the “Resident Evil 2” remake already receiving praise, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see a similar reception if a remake of “Nemesis” is announced by Capcom.

“Resident Evil 2” remake director Kazunori Kadoi teased in August that other games in the series could be remade, but no commitments have been made just yet. “We want to get this one [RE2] out the door, and see how it goes first,” Kadoi told Game Informer. “We’ve got a lot of fans who ask for their favorite games, but we’re not going to commit to anything right now. We’d like to keep our possibilities open for the future and see what makes the most sense when we come to it.”
