It’s no secret that Capcom has been in some sort of renaissance after the success of many of their games. Their new proprietary engine RE Engine definitely has been a key factor on the success of their games. Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5 are amazing games built with the engine and, according to Capcom, not the last we’ll see of RE Engine projects.
This happened following the reveal of Capcom’s information for the past fiscal year. The game publisher was asked about future games that are being developed using the RE Engine. The company did not state the names of any of the projects they are working on. However, they confirmed that they are working on numerous titles developed in the engine.
“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,” said Capcom in response to the inquiry.
Additionally, Capcom made a few comments in regards to creation of games on the RE Engine. “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,” the publisher stated.
The RE Engine seems to have become a staple of the publisher’s future efforts. As such, one can only imagine what Capcom has in mind for their upcoming games. We might even see some amazing multiplayer titles coming in the near future as well. The sky’s the limit when it comes to the possibilities that Capcom has with the RE Engine.
Maybe some of the new games by Capcom will be announced during E3 2019. The possibility is a tantalizing one, especially because they could bring back properties like Mega Man X. At the same time, Capcom could also reveal entirely new properties or a reboot to other franchises.
