Resident Evil 2 Remake release date hint from Capcom

resident evil 2 remake release date

Capcom has announced during its latest financial results that it will launch a ‘major title’ by March 31, 2018. 

While the Japanese software giant is keeping mum on the identity of the game, it hasn’t stopped folk from speculating as to what the title could be. A popular choice is Resident Evil 2 remake, which was announced in August 2015 and has remained on the quiet side ever since. The release timing would also align nicely with the 20th anniversary of the original PlayStation survival horror classic.

Another candidate could be Deep Down, the long-delayed PS4-exclusive dungeon crawler that was announced during Sony’s New York City press conference back in February 2013. Little has been seen on the game since then, and it’s unknown if Capcom is actually working on the project still.

On the other hand, it could be that Capcom has been quietly beavering away on a new Devil May Cry game all this time, and we’ll get a formal reveal around E3 before the title rolls out in early 2018. 

Elsewhere, the company forecast an additional two million sales for Resident Evil 7: biohazard during the same time period. Yesterday, we reported that the critically acclaimed horror title had moved 3.5 million copies worldwide, although this fell short of Capcom’s initial expectations for the title.
