A lot of those who played Resident Evil 2 felt like the sequel that featured Nemesis was sort of a short extension to the 1998 classic, so while it was a respectable installment in the series, Resident Evil 3 was largely overlooked.
It may be a bit too early to speculate, but considering the lack of fanfare would a Resident Evil 3 remake work?
After the complete do-over of the RE2, Capcom could either skip remaking the third game and head instead to Code Veronica or probably just do a HD remaster akin Resident Evil Zero.
Another solution is that RE3 could be absorbed into the RE2 remake. Given that Capcom is giving the RE2 remake even more commitment than the first REmake, it is possible that the shorter RE3 could just be a part of the current project. A more detailed and menacing Nemesis to run away from and an even better-designed Jill Valentine, who wouldn’t want that?
In fact, by today’s standards both sequels are pretty short – yes, even compared to the Call of Duty games. However, it would make less commercial sense combining them, as the sales opportunity from having two separate remakes would be gone.
