Resident Evil fans are eagerly anticipating the release of a new Resident Evil title, but it’s not the next mainline entry in the game. What fans are looking forward to seeing is the Resident Evil 2 Remake release date before E3 2017 ends. However, we’re done with the major announcements from developers and the conference is drawing to a close, but no details about the game have been revealed yet.
Fans anticipated the Resident Evil 2 Remake release date reveal over at E3 2017, but Capcom hasn’t said anything about the game. The wait could be longer as it looks like the Resident Evil 2 Remake release date might not be as close as we think.
It’s A Total Overhaul
Development on the Resident Evil 1 Remake took only a year and players got the game not long after it was announced. However, what Capcom did with the first game was mostly an HD remaster rather than completely altering its gameplay.
Capcom is changing everything from the ground up with Resident Evil 2, since it’s a remake. On one hand, Capcom could simply take the first approach of the first remake where the game was given a more modern look while the gameplay was largely unchanged.
On the other hand, this title could be completely different than what fans experienced before. This could be a reimagining of the game, like what Square Enix is doing with their Final Fantasy 7 Remake. There’s even a chance that Capcom is trying to make the game more like Resident Evil 7, which caught fans off guard with its first-person experience. The latest mainline entry was a big success and successfully brought back the franchise to its survival horror roots.
Capcom Doesn’t Want To Take Development Lightly
The Resident Evil fan base is more than excited to see the return of what is considered as one of the best games in the series. Capcom probably won’t take development on the game too lightly as the game’s community is going to be outraged if the game isn’t up to their standards. The last thing Capcom wants is to rush the development process.
Busy With Other Things
The release of the Resident Evil 2 Remake could be far off because Capcom is still busy with other projects, hence why it’s possible the game isn’t in full production yet. There’s still some content coming to Resident Evil 7 including the anticipated Not A Hero DLC. To avoid stealing the spotlight from Resident Evil 7, it’s safe to say that Capcom won’t be releasing the remake up until all post-launch content has been released.
