Capcom has announced that it is currently working on numerous games that will be powered by the RE Engine. The RE Engine was used in Resident Evil 7, Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, and has been able to provide amazing visuals and impressive performance on current-gen hardware.
As Capcom noted:
“While we are unable to comment on the specific number of titles or release windows, there are numerous titles currently being developed internally with the RE ENGINE.”
Unfortunately Capcom has not revealed the identity of these games, however rumour has it that the Japanese team is working on both Resident Evil 8 and Resident Evil 3 Remake. To be honest, I’d love to see a new Dino Crisis game using this new engine, however I’m almost certain that this won’t happen anytime soon.
Capcom has also commented on the next-generation hardware that is almost upon us. According to the team, the RE Engine is ready for next-generation consoles. As such, this could mean that some of the aforementioned unannounced games are either cross-gen or next-gen only.
“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.”
