Capcom has been incredibly busy working on remastered, reworked and revamped versions of fan-favourite classic games. Games like Resident Evil 2 are getting the HD treatment, with a fully redesigned world and characters to modernise what’s lots of people’s favourite horror title.
It’s now being reported that Capcom isn’t going to let this nostalgia cash cow go to waste, as it’s planning to rework more of its back catalogue of classic games to bring to the masses.
During an investor meeting, a representative for Capcom was asked what the company was planning for the future, with Capcom responding: “Regarding remakes and rereleases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP.”
One of Capcom’s most beloved games, Dino Crisis (and its sequels) has had fans begging for a remaster for years now, making it a likely choice for the next HD reboot.
A Dino Crisis remaster is getting a lot of attention on Twitter, as fans cry out for the dino-shooting game to make a comeback, and even speculating that Capcom’s recent statement could mean one is one the way.
Please do a remaster of Dino Crisis 1&2! Also a proper new sequel would bring a whole new generation of fans!
Seriously, all of us who started with the PS1 RE games ❤️❤️❤️ Dino Crisis!!!

Dino Crisis was the dinosaur survival horror game first released back in 1999. Created by Shinji Mikami and released by Capcom, the game is a cult classic that thousands want to see return.
Are you listening, Capcom?!
The new version of Capcom’s classic, Resident Evil 2, is due to release in January 2019. If the game succeeds in the sales department, we might well be getting a Dino Crisis HD!
