Capcom has managed to achieve a lot of success with their most recent game engine and they are seeking to continue it heading into the next-generation as well.
Capcom recently posted a Q/A session held with investors regarding their fiscal year results and talked about their upcoming plans as well. One of the questions asked by the investors was regarding RE Engine and how Capcom plans to use it for developing next-generation games for PS5 and other consoles.
“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.”
When asked about how many titles are currently in development at Capcom using the RE Engine, they decline to give a number but said that they have “numerous” games in development right now. One of the games has been rumored to be Resident Evil 3 Remake, and one could be Resident Evil 8, but as for the rest, we still don’t have any idea what they are planning next.
“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.”
Monster Hunter World uses a different game engine so it doesn’t count under the RE Engine. It will get an expansion later this year adding a significant chunk of new content to the game. The games that are confirmed to use RE Engine include Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5. All of these games have received critical acclaim and are known for offering cutting-edge tech and incredible visuals.
