A Capcom artist says that the Resident Evil 2 Remake is on track, despite reports that it's in development hell.
Responding to a new video that appeared on YouTube suggesting that the HD Remake of Resident Evil 2 was delayed, Capcom artist RikkTheGaijin responded by writing “It's not in development hell. Everything is on track.”
Resident Evil 2 Remake release date in 2018?
The Resident Evil Remake 2 release date has been hinted at numerous times, though a firm date has yet to be given. Fans were expecting to see the game appear the Tokyo Game Show this year but it didn't materialize. Then there was a Resident Evil Remake rumor that it would show at the PlayStation Experience 2017. That also didn't happen.
Other news and hearsay surrounding the game suggest that the remake will be third-person, and the backgrounds from the original game will be used, but obviously glossed up.
The game was officially revealed back in 2015, but since then Capcom has been quiet. What's interesting is that Resident Evil 2 hits its 20th anniversary in January 2018. Could Capcom be waiting to unleash the new Resident Evil 2 Remake then? It's possible.
