Dino Crisis 2 turns 23 years old today, and to commemorate this milestone, the official Capcom Twitter account has shared an image of the game. While this may seem innocuous at first glance, fans have been clamoring for a remake for years. Needless to say, the comments and quote tweets are inundated with people asking, "Where is Dino Crisis?"
"Please release it again on PlayStation, if you please," tweeted @Grad0n. "PLEASE CAPCOM," exclaimed @junchgaming. "When will a reboot come?" asked @ResidentDante.
A reboot, a remake, a port - the fans are now requesting everything. But that's nothing new. Resident Evil, also published by Capcom, has received three remakes alone since 2019, while the entire series is playable on the current console generation. Dino Crisis, on the other hand, remains trapped on older hardware, and the last new game was released in 2003. However, we try to forget about that - it was exclusive to the Xbox and, in a way, the Resident Evil 6 of the series.
"We want a remake," said @awseswes. "Well, well, well, look at the time! It's time for a remake," exclaimed @Sultant_a. "Bring back the dinosaurs!" exclaimed @restart_gamer. The comments and quote tweets continue with a similar sentiment, with many conveniently disregarding the third game as they demand the series to be ported to current-generation consoles.
Admittedly, Dino Crisis did make a comeback in August of last year, but not in the way most people had anticipated. It appeared in a mobile card game called Teppen, developed by Capcom and GungHo Online Entertainment. This was part of a crossover that also included Resident Evil icons such as Ada Wong, Leon Kennedy, and Hunk. It's something, at least, isn't it?
Apart from that, there was the announcement of Exoprimal. Presented as a new dinosaur game from Capcom featuring a red-haired special agent, many immediately thought it was a new Dino Crisis game, if not a remake. However, that was not the case. Instead, it turned out to be an online shooter that was released with mixed reviews.
Let's go further back to June of last year: Capcom asked if fans liked Dino Crisis and Dead Rising, two dormant series that have been on everyone's lips for years, both of which concluded with less-than-favorable sequels. Many took this as a sign that remakes are either in development or being considered, but since then, we haven't heard anything more.
Perhaps Dino Crisis will celebrate a comeback one day, but for now, one thing is certain: if Capcom releases any information about it, all mentions will be flooded with demands for a remake.
