In past, Spawn Wave has record of successfully leaking upcoming From Software release Elden Ring before official reveal at E3 2019. Besides, several other sources are reporting on the same rumor as well with a bit lesser skepticism.

Capcom took Friday the 13th of July in 2018 to tease fans by posting an image on Twitter of RE3 antagonist Nemesis, comparing him to notoriously relentless stalker Jason Voorhees, both chasing and haunting their victims persistently.

Then earlier this year, they mysteriously tease fans on social media by putting a shot of protagonist Claire Redfield from RE2 Remake standing next to a massive hole in a wall before arrival of Mr. X, a few months after its launch.

When Capcom was looking for RE Ambassadors within United States back in August 2019, people were hoping for confirmation on RE3 Remake but it turned out to be a brand-new Resident Evil game titled Project Resistance.

However, during Closed Beta program of this team survival multiplayer experience last month, some players started to notice Resident Evil 3 save room theme is being played in-game, which is a rather interesting nod to add for sure.

Moreover, lead character Jill Valentine and her fellow Raccoon City survivor Carlos Oliveira has briefly appeared in first trailer of the game to add more fuel to that spark of fire, having fans to speculate even harder for RE3Make.

If show host Geoff Keighley truly ends up announcing Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake at the big night of TGA 2019 next month, it is most likely to come out at some later point in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
