    Default Resident Evil 2 Remake due "soon"

    Not much of an update, but producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi was asked about upcoming projects from Capcom, to which he responded that the RE2make project would be out "soon".

    The article seems to think it will coincide with Resident Evil 2's 20th anniversary next year. A good sign would be a trailer at Tokyo Game Show in... September?

    It's fairly worrisome that they haven't showcased any media demonstrating gameplay whatsoever yet the game is about to be released.

    I don't think it's all that worrisome to be honest. They wanted to focus the promotion on Resident Evil 7 for the time being and will shift focus on to the remake afterward. I don't think it's something to look too far into honestly.

    With the lack of the original voice actors returning and how little promotional material there is for this game it doesn't instill a sense of confidence in me that Capcom is particularly proud of this remake. I hope I'm wrong but I would need to see something more substantial from them than this.

    Resident Evil Remake didn't have any returning voice actors from the first game and didn't start the promotion cycle until E3 about 8 months prior to release. I think you are just reading way too much into this.

    Well, with 2018 being the 20th anniversary, it figures we may get an announcement around TGS in another 3 or so months. Fingers crossed they don't screw it up. I'm pulling for this to be a genuinely amazing remake like the first game.

    Soon could mean many different things. There's about a 1% chance that this game comes out in 2017 but let's hope that i'm wrong. I also love how everybody is freaking out due to the lack of updates...it's like a reoccurring theme around here.

    I don't think it's coming out this year. The best scenario I can come up with, is a limited time between the first reveal trailer and the release date.... Probably 8 months after, similar to Resident Evil 7. I am holding out hope that a reveal will be at the Tokyo Game Show, and a late spring/early summer release in 2018.

    With all the work being put into Not A Hero, I assume they won't want either the DLC or the RE2 Remake to over-shadow the other. So here's hoping TGS unveils both, with fall/winter release of Not A Hero, and a spring/summer release of Resident Evil 2.

    with fall/winter release of Not A Hero
    That would mean it comes out a year and a half after the initially announced release date. That would be pretty frustrating.

    So does anyone have any guesses on what changes or additions might be added to Resident Evil 2? Similar to the Resident Evil remake, how they changed layouts, puzzles, added new mechanics, new monsters, etc.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Crimson Heads return. Maybe they'll extend the factory stage into a full level like it apparently was in RE1.5. Personally I'd like to see a bit of a longer introduction stage in the streets before arriving at the police station.

    Would it kill them to give us just a screenshot?

    The game is coming out soon and yet we have seen literally no media from it.

    I don't think it is coming out soon though, I read that Kobayashi apologised & that the article was mistranslated. I can't find the article just this video

    Well, with TGS coming up pretty darn soon, we may get an announcement for Revelations 3 around then, if there's a pattern to go by from revealing such titles in prior years. I'm sure the RE2 remake will be out in 2018 anyway. It's bound to be something Capcom are aiming for too, since RE2 was out in 1998. Right?

    Well, development of the game began back in 2015. Maybe they got the game 80% complete, and then decided to scrap it?

    It wouldn't be the first time. They saw how successful RE7 was, and decided to make RE2 using photorealism as opposed to regular graphics, which required them to start all over.

    Just a theory, even though I don't believe that was the case. I'm just trying to be humorous.

    But at the same time I can actually see them doing that.
