Resident Evil 5 Remake Rumors Swirl, Fueled By SteamDB Updates

Fueled by recent updates on SteamDB, speculation surrounding a potential remake of Resident Evil 5 is gaining traction.

Twitter user @PRE_Alarabiya identified changes to the game’s description and title, with the latter potentially being altered to “Resident Evil (2009)” soon.

This naming convention mirrors the approach taken with the original Resident Evil 4 before its remake was officially announced, leading some to believe a similar announcement for RE5 might be imminent. The timing could also coincide with the franchise’s 30th anniversary later this year, further bolstering the speculation.

However, I advise taking this with a grain of salt until Capcom makes an official announcement.

RE5 marked a significant shift for the series, transitioning from its traditional survival horror roots to a more action-oriented experience, one that focused on the action far more than the original RE4.

This change garnered praise and criticism, but the title undeniably resonated with players, exceeding 9 million copies sold worldwide and becoming one of Capcom’s most commercially successful games.

Originally released in 2009 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Resident Evil 5 received a re-release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2016.
