Given the success of this year's Resident Evil 2 remake, not only is it possible Capcom will continue on with a remake of Resident Evil 3, it seems pretty likely at this point. In the past, Capcom teased that a remake could happen if the demand is there (and the demand is certainly there). Meanwhile, numerous reports and rumors have already surfaced suggesting that development of the remake has actually already begun, including a report/rumor that surfaced this past March. That all said, recently Capcom has been teasing something Resident Evil 3 related on the series' official Twitter account, and surely it's the remake.
The teasing came in the form of two separate teases posted within one day of each other. The first tease features an image of Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil 1 remake, while the second tease features a screenshot ripped from the Resident Evil 2 remake that seems to reference Nemesis, the antagonist of Resident Evil 3. You can see the two teases, for yourself, below:

So why do Resident Evil fans think these tweets are teasing Resident Evil 3? Well, the second teaser features a massive hole in the wall located in the bathing room of the RPD building. Clearly something has broken through it. The thing is, this is before Mr. X is in the station, so it can't be from him. That said, given that Resident Evil 3 partially takes place before the events of Resident Evil 2, means the hole could be from Nemesis, who chases the aforementioned Jill Valentine around the RPD.
None of the teasing in question is blatant, and of course, you shouldn't take any of it to the bookies as a reason to bet on the existence of a Resident Evil 3 remake. However, Resident Evil fans seem pretty confident that Capcom is working on exactly that.
Anyway, as always, feel free to leave a comment letting us know what you think or hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there. Would you be interested in a Resident Evil 3 remake?
