Development on the Resident Evil 3 remake is very close to the finish line. So close that Capcom says a delay won’t happen.In an interview with Famitsu, Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 producers Peter Fabiano and Masao Kawada claimed that work on the second remake “is about 90%” completed. They’re so confident in the work accomplished so far that they told the publication “there will be no delay,” according to the interview translation.
While it’s true that the release date for the Resident Evil 3 remake is only a few months away, video game development can be unpredictable. But it’s nice to see the two producers on the project so confident about the game’s current development.
Resident Evil 3 remake was announced in December last year during the PlayStation State of Play live stream. What’s more, Capcom announced the game would be released on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.In a different interview with Famitsu, Fabiano and Kawada said that the remake for Resident Evil 3 is going to be even more of a remix of the original than Resident Evil 2’s remake was. One of the goals for 3’s remake is to make the cast more compelling than in the original game.Capcom wasted no time teasing the Resident Evil 3 remake, even going as far as to patch content into Resident Evil 2 like Nemesis’ voice, and a letter from Jill Valentine.
