Capcom has lately become very closely interested in what their players have to say. Numerous launches have had follow-up surveys, and it looks like Resident Evil 3 is no different.
Recently, anyone with a Capcom Account received an email, asking them a few questions about their knowledge of Resident Evil 3.
The early survey questions are post-launch. They ask what you had heard about Resident Evil 3 before playing it, what you looked forward to the most, how you heard of it, etc. These are all pretty standard questions.
After these questions are some post-launch ones, this time asking if you’ve played it. If so, they want to know what you liked, what you thought, and what you were expecting. Judging by the community response, this is where much of the time was spent by those who have taken the survey.
Finally, it asks you about the future of the series. Would you play more games in the series? Would you play future titles? Would you want more numbered titles, remakes, and spin-offs? So it looks like Capcom has a vested interest in seeing more remakes and spin-offs depending on the outcome of the survey.
The last bit is standard, but only for Capcom. For the past few years, they’ve gone out of their way to see what fans look forward to the most, and what newcomers think. How this information is processed, however, is unclear.
For now, this survey seems innocent enough. None of the questions are very leading, and it’s hard to draw a link between this and what we know of Resident Evil Village.
For now, it’s safe to assume this was basic customer care. If you’d like to make your voice heard, you can take the survey here.
