When asked about plans for IPs considered inactive, the Resident Evil publisher left the future open and said it was already working on strategies to rescue old games. However, the company made it clear that it will not only consider its will, but also market demand and possible indicators of interest.

We are currently developing plans for our work schedule in line with market demand information. Going forward, we will continue to consider customer wishes as we decide on our alignment.

Sagas like Dino Crisis, Darkstalkers, Power Stone, Viewtiful Joe and Onimusha have been without new entries for almost 20 years, with many of them being quite popular with fans. Meanwhile, Okami and Lost Planet have gone ten years without sequels, as bets like Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Monster Hunter continue to rise.
