Capcom looks like it’s going to have a few things in store for Resident Evil fans over at the upcoming E3 2017. After the success of Resident Evil 7, Capcom could be treating fans to more amazing titles yet again. This time, the developer has recently teased news regarding Resident Evil 2 Remake and fans can’t get more hyped up about it.
A recent tweet by the official Resident Evil Twitter account reveals a model of one of the major enemies in Resident Evil 2. “Ever wonder what goes on at Capcom’s USA offices? William Birkin sees all, but he’s not telling,” says the tweet. Those who’ve played Resident Evil 2 are more likely to remember who the terrorizing William Birkin is.
Fans have been clamoring for a Resident Evil 2 Remake long before the release of Resident Evil 7. Following the remaster of the first game, fans expected Capcom to give the second game it’s due remake. Capcom has confirmed that a Resident Evil 2 Remake is coming but no word on the release date has been revealed yet. After the recent tweet, we may be getting closer to a reveal.
What adds more fuel to the rumors regarding the reveal of the Resident Evil 2 Remake is that Capcom is going to be present at E3 2017. We’ve yet to know what the developer has in store for the upcoming major event in gaming but something big regarding the Resident Evil franchise doesn’t sound too far-fetched.
Back at E3 2016, Capcom had Resident Evil 7 to showcase to series fans. It even released the infamous demo for the game at the event. It’s looking more and more likely that we’ll see Resident Evil 2 in a new form at E3 in either Sony or Microsoft’s press conference.
There’s a good reason why fans love Resident Evil 2 so much and it’s because the game is considered to be one of the best entries in the series. It had amazing graphics and visuals for its time but the atmosphere really set the tone for survival shooters everywhere. The game was so popular, a few fans decided to remake the game entirely. The project was shut down by Capcom but the developer itself has decided to actually make a remake instead.
