Well, one of the worst kept secrets is finally out. Eurogamer reported earlier today that official Resident Evil 3 Remake cover art leaked on PSN. As of yet, there has been no official announcement, but the screenshots look like the real deal.
It’s no secret that after the huge critical and financial success of the Resident Evil 2 Remake that Capcom would want to recreate that success, but the question was what game would follow it up? Before this, Capcom had shown off a new Resident Evil multiplayer game, Project Resistance, that many believed to be the next entry in the Resident Evil series. There was also the possibility that Resident Evil 8 would be next, but the cover art leak seems to put all of that to bed.
Now, we still don’t know the release date of the game, which I expect will be announced at this year’s Game Awards on December 12th, but considering that the cover art was leaked on PSN, it’s safe to assume to that RE3 will be the next Resident Evil game.
Another curious thing is that no where on the cover art is the word “Nemesis”. The big bad himself is in the cover art, but the subtitle seems to be gone. The official title at the moment seems to be either Resident Evil 3 or Biohazard 3.
Either way, I’m sure we’ll all find out more come December 12th.
