Resident Evil Revelations 2: Producer Explains The Decision To Bring Back Claire Redfield

One of the survivors of the Raccoon City incident, Claire Redfield is one of the most loved characters from Resident Evil games.

She last appeared in Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, so it has been a long time since she was a playable character in a Resident Evil game.

However, that is about to change with the release of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. The first game was well received so a sequel was only a matter of time. There are so many characters in Resident Evil franchise who have been surviving the outbreak for years now.

Capcom could have gone with any of these characters and although Claire is a highly popular character, what exactly triggered Capcom’s decision to make her a lead character in Revelations 2?

In an interview, producer Michiteru Okabe shed some light on the matter and explained the reason why they thought bringing back Claire Redfield will be the right choice.

First of all, we haven’t seen her in a while, as a playable character. So it seemed like a great time to bring her back. Also, we know that fans like her, so why not give them what they want? Also, Dai Sato, the writer who wrote the scenario, for this game is a big fan of her personally, so those three factors basically converged and led to her return.

Over the years, how has she changed as a person is something fans will be interested to know but when asked the question, Okabe only stated that she is more mature now due to all the experiences she went through.

What experiences? Players will have to play the game themselves in order to know the answer to that.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is going to be released as an episodic series on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2015.
