Capcom will apparently be developing more remakes of some of its classic franchises, possibly with the upcoming releases of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in mind. Although no specific title has been revealed yet, fans have already started speculating, with plenty of comments being made in favor of the classic survival horror game Dino Crisis.

Capcom has been busy remaking some of its classic titles, with 2015’s Resident Evil HD Remaster, 2019’s Resident Evil 2, and the upcoming new version of Resident Evil 3, which has a scheduled release date of April 3. The remake of Resident Evil 2 was greeted with rave reviews, and it shipped over five million units worldwide, so the game's terrific critical and commercial success has given the company the motivation to carry on searching through its back catalog for its next remake hit.

Early news about the remake of Resident Evil 3 (latest trailer below) was greeted with enthusiasm, and now it has been revealed that the Japanese company may be considering more classics for a modern makeover treatment. Immediately, Dino Crisis has risen to the top of the pile in terms of which game fans would most like to see brought back to life, while other titles that have been mentioned include Dead Rising and Onimusha.

However, before survival horror game fans get too excited, this news comes from an unofficial source on Twitter and not directly from Capcom. The same source states that there will be no remake coming for Resident Evil 4 (or any other title in the popular series) for a long time, and that gamers should basically forget about waiting for Resident Evil 8. But with the RE Engine apparently being utilized for future remakes of other games, at least there could be new versions of Dino Crisis and Dino Crisis 2 to fill the void.
