It’s safe to presume that plenty of survival-horror fans have already completed the majority of what the Resident Evil 2 remake’s base game has to offer, and are looking forward to the game’s forthcoming Ghost Survivors DLC. Until then, some players are biding their time by making various mods for the title, with one recent creation importing the Dino Crisis protagonist Regina into the RE2 remake.
Thanks to the handiwork of the modder and YouTuber known simply as Crazy Potato, Resident Evil 2 fans should expect for there to be a downloadable version of the mod featuring Regina from Dino Crisis soon, but no official time frame has been given just yet. When it does become available, though, it appears as if the mod will work by porting in assets that portray the likeness of the Dino Crisis lead as a skin for the RE2 remake’s co-protagonist Claire Redfield.
It has been quite some time since the last Dino Crisis was released, with the third numbered entry in the series having been put out for the original Xbox back in 2003, so there’s a good chance that this Resident Evil 2 mod is Crazy Potato’s way of saying that they would enjoy seeing a new installment soon. As rumor has it, Capcom Vancouver was once approached to do a reboot of the Dino Crisis franchise, but chose to work on the unreleased Knights of Aegis in 2013 instead. Unfortunately, no official word has been shared thus far if the series will be revived.
Taking everything here into consideration, with the Resident Evil 2 remake having had a considerable amount of success due to its positive critical reception and solid sales, Capcom could very well decide to remake other IPs in its back catalog, including Dino Crisis. The publisher and developer has previously expressed interest in remaking and remastering many of its AAA releases–including Resident Evil 3–so we will have to simply wait and see if Regina and her Dino Crisis cohorts eventually return in some way, shape, or form in the future.
Resident Evil 2 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
