The leak of Resident Evil 3 artwork earlier this month has thrown the internet into a tizzy, and now UK retailer Base.com had a pre-order page available listing the remake’s price at £38.85 (USD $51.10).
As reported by TwistedVoxel, the Base webpage for RE3 also previously contained a potential release date—that of March 31, 2020. This has since been removed, and so was likely a placeholder date used in anticipation of an actual release date—which makes sense, as March 31 is an odd date to release a game which has yet to be shown in any real capacity and has not yet had an official announcement.
As shown in the first image at the top of this article, this release date no longer appears on Base’s website.
Previous leaks and speculation all point to an end-of-year release date for Resident Evil 3, and Halloween, in particular, seems promising. While Capcom has yet to make RE3‘s remake official, leaked images confirmed its production on December 3. These images were discovered by game data aggregate site gamestat, and were pulled directly from the PlayStation Network API—meaning they are real, actual images, and someone at Capcom is in big, big trouble. The images have since been removed from the PSN API, but not before eagle-eyed fans and media outlets saved them.
One bit of information that has been confirmed in regards to Resident Evil 3 is that the game will not be shown at this year’s The Game Awards, which air a mere three days from now. Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley stated during a reddit AMA that a lot of the leaks surrounding what games will appear at the award ceremony have been false.
Notably during his AMA, Keighley avoided and dodged all questions regarding Elden Ring and Half Life: Alyx, so gamers can expect that they will see those games at The Game Awards.
