Capcom releasing the Resident Evil 2 Remake game gave it one of its most popular games of the year, even with Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion. However, a new Project Resistance Easter egg might have just given us reason to hope at a Resident Evil 3 remake coming at some point in the future.
Project Resistance is an upcoming multiplayer Resident Evil game, where a four-player team of ordinary people attempts to make it through an Umbrella Corporation testing facility, fighting various monsters on the way. The game is currently in closed beta.
A fifth player, taking on the role of the “Mastermind”, hounds them throughout the facility, setting monsters on them, tracking their progress on cameras, and messing with the facility’s geography to make the job of the survivors harder. Each survivor also has a different advantage when playing as the Mastermind.
The Easter Egg in question is the presence of Resident Evil 3’s save room music as part of Project Resistance’s soundtrack. While it’s not much of an Easter egg, it’s a surprising one considering we haven’t gotten any announcements about something like Resident Evil 3 being remade any time soon.
Since Project Resistance is another Resident Evil game that takes place in the same time period as Resident Evil 2 and 3, during the time of the Raccoon City Outbreak, the Easter egg could be one of two things: It could be an actual hint at a Resident Evil 3 remake coming in the future, or just be a nice nod to another game happening at the same time as Project Resistance.
We likely won’t figure out if the Project Resistance Easter egg is anything related to a Resident Evil 3 remake until Capcom sees fit to announce it themselves. In the meantime, all we can do is keep an eye on Project Resistance and see how it turns out, especially since prior multiplayer-focused Resident Evil games haven’t been very good.
