It was just last week that the second remade title erected from the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil 3 Remake, released for modern platforms. And while fans continue to unravel this anticipated follow-up to last year’s Resident Evil 2 Remake, publisher Capcom is already invested in hearing player input on the events leading up to the game’s arrival and their reasoning for purchasing the game primarily.

Just recently, Capcom sent out a survey for fans asking about their interest in the latest entry for the Resident Evil Remake subgenre surrounding how word got across and other demographical details as you would expect. While the questionnaire does not stand out from the ordinary on the surface, it wasn’t until later in the questions does things get interesting.

During the last segment of the survey, Capcom asks users if they would be interested in seeing yet another remade entry for the series. You can view the question in full below:

If a new remake title of “Resident Evil” series is released, would you like to purchase?

• I will purchase the game even if I had to buy a new console.
• I will purchase the game if it can be played on the console I own.
• I will wait and consider purchasing after the release.
• I have no intention of purchasing the game, but I want to play.
• I do not want to play anymore.

What makes the polling even more peculiar is that the following question also asks about a sequel which lists the same questions, even if the player would go out of their way of purchasing a new console to do so. The final question goes on by listing all respected entries of the series –most likely for the publisher to grab an understanding of what the player base in interested in returning to next.

On the discussion of sequels for newer hardware, this instance looks to easily align with the previously reported claim that the next mainline entry for Resident Evil will potentially be a cross-gen release. Even more, that rumor also happens to correspond with a separate claim which tells of the return of the first-person approach to the gameplay for the unannounced title.

Companies surveying its fan base is nothing new as it has been done before, most notably with Sega regarding Atlus’ repertoire as of recent. The publisher asked of what titles would the players like to see be releasing on Nintendo Switch. Evidently, that later happened to be Catherine: Full Body: you can read the full report on the announcement by heading here.
