Whether you want more remakes or not, Capcom sees the franchise as one big cash cow. In fact, Capcom should be renamed Ca$hcom with the amount of times they've been whoring out remakes, or going back to Raccoon City like, 6,653,781 different times.
Anyway, I don't think they give a hoot about remaking CV. I reckon they should probably remake the original RE again so the glorious 2002 remake doesn't get compared to the new remakes. Although I guess RE4 was a lot more faithful than 2 and 3 were. But the 2002 game just has a completely different feeling altogether. So remaking RE 1 in the style of 2 and 3 would make the remakes feel more complete, I guess.
Raccoon City unfortunately, keeps being revisited, when I feel it's time to move beyond 1998. You cannot do a post Raccoon City game about the city itself, so they just keep on giving alternative takes on what occurred. Maybe the city could be rebuilt someday, but that would be scraping it big time.
I think they've probably did at least ten or so different takes on Raccoon City's final hours since the city was blown up in 1999. We've had the on rails games, various spin offs, a non canon game, movies, a Netflix series, and the remakes. So yeah. It probably is about ten times by this point.
Do a new city. Call it Possum City. There!
