If there is a saga that Capcom fans want the Japanese company to resume, that is it. Dino Crisisa series of games survival horror from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. The last main installment of Dino Crisis arrived in 2022 exclusively for Xbox and since then it has been in the prayers of fans every time the company has an event. According to the latest reports, there was a time when Capcom was developing a new Dino Crisis, but it ended up becoming another game.
As happened in the case of Resident Evil, if the Dino Crisis series continued, Capcom would have to do it without its original creator, since Mikami left the company many years ago. After going through Platinum Games, Mikami founded Tango Gameworks 12 years ago and just a few days ago he announced his departure from the studio. His last game as a producer has been the successful Hi-fi Rush, for Xbox and PC.
Exoprimal would have started as Dino Crisis
According to RE Engine Aesthetics, a Twitter account dedicated to collecting news about Capcom games, Exoprimal, the new shooting game, mechas and dinosaurs of Capcom, would have started its development being part of the Dino Crisis universe. The Japanese would have recorded the patent for a new multiplayer Dino Crisis game in 2020although they let it expire in 2021, coinciding with the initial announcement of Exoprimal.
Weekly fun fact #23:
Exoprimal could’ve almost been a Dino Crisis game at one point, as a trademark for a Dino Crisis online game was filed back in 2020, only for it to be scrapped in 2021, and likely turned into Exoprimal. pic.twitter.com/U1dGPbvu3v

There are few details about that hypothetical Dino Criss multiplayer project of 2020 and the reasons why it would end up being canceled or converted to Exoprimalbut the truth is that the new Capcom game bears certain similarities with this classic series, even if they are only the dinosaurs and that female lead with red hair. For the rest they are not alike in many ways, while Dino Crisis was a survival horror, Exoprimal is a multiplayer third-person shooter with mechas. Nothing to see.
