Earlier this year Capcom announced enhancement updates of RE 2, 3, and 7 for next-gen consoles and the PC. A release date was unspecified but this image from twitter user @BSAAEurope suggests that the enhanced RE 3 is just over the horizon for PlayStation 5 users around the world.

Booting up his PlayStation 5, @BSAAEurope discovered that their copy of RE 3 had an update track pinned to the homepage. Though the download link was unavailable, this means that Capcom could release the game at any time. These update tracks are as of yet missing for Resident Evil 2 and 7, so it’s probable that their enhanced editions are scheduled to come out at a later date after RE 3.

Alas, Xbox and PC fans are missing out with no RE 3 update in sight. It’s unclear whether the enhanced editions will have simultaneous releases across the consoles, but one can hope.

“Resident Evil 3” Rating also Supports an Early Release

Last month the ratings website Pegi.info updated to reflect a new rating for the Resident Evil 3 Remake on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox X/S. Because gaming companies often update their title ratings close to release, this is yet another sign that the enhanced edition lies within reach for PlayStation 5 fans.

The same cannot be said for Resident Evil 2 or 7, however, as their ratings remain unchanged. It’s likely that Capcom plans on releasing its enhanced editions game-by-game instead of all three titles at once.

The “RE 3” Remake (2020), Where it Stands

Released a year after the acclaimed RE 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 (2020) received mixed to generally favorable reviews. In many ways the remake is a spirited retelling of its original. Capcom renders RE 3′s iconic setting of Raccoon City in excruciating detail.

The game shines most when it envelopes you in its concrete jungle, a labyrinth of walkways and dimly-lit storefronts.

But for a slim six-hour runtime, RE 3 can at times feel like a lesser add-on to 2019’s Resident Evil 2. Content is missing from the original game’s release, the AI is more artificial than intelligent, and the added multiplayer mode doesn’t mesh-well at all with the survival horror classic.

To many, the Resident Evil 2 Remake is just a more substantial game, its widespread release making it easier than ever for fans to pick up the series and join the Capcom game train.

Yet, even with the title’s faults, Resident Evil 3 wins fans over with its devotion to streamlining iconic content. And for that alone, it’s worth the play. So keep an eye out for Resident Evil 3, releasing sometime soon, just over that horizon.
