Resident Evil 2 remake was announced back in 2015 and since then nothing has been revealed about the game, however, the original Resident Evil 2 director feels good about the upcoming remake and trusts the development team.
Original Resident Evil 2 director, Hideki Kamiya, took it to Twitter and talked about the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake in a series of Tweets and noted that he is confident about the upcoming remake and trusts the development team working on the remake.
Will be way better. RT @BladerKoyotte RE2 is a masterpiece. Hope REmake 2 be the same.
However, Capcom has been very tight-lipped when it comes to Resident Evil 2 remake release date, however, the studio has potentially teased the game’s reveal.
Research and Development Division 1 at Capcom recently posted on Twitter revealing that the team is currently in the USA and also uploaded an image showcasing a finger from Resident Evil 7 demo and a half-hidden typewriter.
Both of these items played a role in the respective games, the typewriter was used to save games in early Resident Evil titles including Resident Evil 2. As for the finger, it seems that Resident Evil 2 remake might include some new features.
Furthermore, this is not the hint that Capcom will be revealing the game soon. Earlier this month speculation started to make rounds on the internet suggesting that the game’s reveal might be just around the corner. It all started with an image of the cover photo of the official Biohazard Twitter account.
Last year Capcom brought the Resident Evil franchise back to its roots with the launch of Resident Evil 7. However, the latest title fell below sales expectations despite the game shipping over 4 million units by October 2017.
However, Capcom noted that it’s not a cause of panic for the game not meeting the sales expectations as “lifecycle for games is growing longer”.
Also, Capcom has predicted that Resident Evil 7 will ship 10 million units in its lifetime and for that, the game has a long way to go.
Resident Evil 2 remake was announced way back in 2015, however, the game has been in the background ever since and has been overshadowed by the launch of Resident Evil 7, after all the latest title is an incredible game.
