RUMOR: Resident Evil Revelations 3 is in the works for Switch

Natalia, the sluice!

Resident Evil Revelations debuted on the 3DS, and it was a real show-stopper for the portable. The game was successful enough to make its way to multiple other platforms, and get a sequel as well. Now we're hearing that a third entry is on the way, and Capcom's focus is on bringing it to Switch.

Capcom suffered a leak recently, and it revealed a ton of different projects. Included in that leak was Resident Evil Outrage, which is apparently considered internally to be a continuation of the Revelations series. Whether it retains the name remains to be seen, but for all intents and purposes, Outrage will be very much in the style of the Revelations games.

According to an industry insider, Capcom is focusing on Switch as the main platform for Resident Evil Outrage. The game will make its way to other consoles as well, but first and foremost, this will be a Switch title. We've seen this happen before with the 3DS, and thanks to the success Switch has seen, seeing Capcom give Switch the focus for another Resident Evil spin-off makes a lot of sense.

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!


I am Ok with this. I llike the Revelations games a lot. And it would be nice to have an exclusive title of the series for switch for a change (even if is timed).

I would prefer a port of 7 or 2 and 3 remakes...but I highly doubt it.

Well acording to the same person in this story they tried porting 7 and 2/3 remake but they couldn't get them to run as well as they wanted

Dang -_- That sucks. I can understand it but it's a shame

It would be nice if we got spin-offs like this in ADDITION to the mainline games and remakes. It's similar to the Wii all over again, where the Switch is treated like an afterthought, with Capcom thinking to themselves "how can we make money from this platform without putting maximum effort in".

If this is true Day One purchase for me no doubt.

I'm up for another RE: R. That reminds me, I still have to finish Part 2...

I'm all for a new Resident Evil Revelations. Maybe a story about Rebecca Chambers.

The pressure Barry put on that poor child to open the sluices...a shame.

I would LOVE to see Sheva make a return. The RER spinoffs should be about the secondary characters that survive the main games; Barry and his daughter were great additions to RER2.
