Capcom announced the Resident Evil 2 Remake will release on Jan. 25, 2019.
A trailer for the game premiered at Sony’s E3 2018 press conference and concluded with the release date.
Resident Evil 2 Remake does not appear to feature a fixed camera angle, unlike the original Resident Evil which released for the PlayStation in 1998. The remake was announced in 2015 by producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi. Very little information was provided about the remake but the long period of silence by Capcom seems to suggest that it is a massive undertaking.
Resident Evil fans have been gifted with a number of remakes and remasters of the series over time. Resident Evil 4 has been released on virtually every platform after its release on the GameCube. The first Resident Evil game received a remake for the GameCube which overhauled the graphics of the original PlayStation game and added new features.
Resident Evil 2 is considered to be one of the best entries in the series and the remake looks to take Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield through the familiar devastation of Raccoon City. The trailer hinted at a third-person perspective which will give a new perspective on killing zombies and Raccoon City.
