Capcom’s Next-Gen Games Will Use the RE Engine

Capcom Talks Next-Gen Development In an Investor Q&A

Capcom revealed during an investor Q&A earlier this month that it plans on using the RE Engine that was used for Resident Evil 7, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and Devil May Cry 5 for next-gen titles.


“The games we developed using the RE ENGINE during this current hardware generation have received critical acclaim,” Capcom said, “and from the early stages of building this engine, we kept the ability to augment it for next-generation development in mind; as such, we view the RE ENGINE as one of our strengths that will contribute to next-generation game creation.”

Capcom also said that it has “numerous titles currently being developed internally with the RE ENGINE.”

While Capcom’s two major 2019 releases, Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2, have both received much praise for their gameplay, both games have also been praised for having stunning graphics.

For example, our Devil May Cry 5 review described the game’s graphics as “drop-dead gorgeous” while our Resident Evil 2 review said that its graphics were “outstanding”, particularly when it came the the gore effects.
