Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Rumors Arise

Capcom’s best-selling franchise has sold over 61 million copies across 92 game releases, and it’s no wonder that the developer is always eager to keep the series alive with new or re-mastered titles. Every gamer has probably played a Resident Evil title at one point or another, whether it’s the original 1996 PlayStation release, the 2002 GameCube remake, or a more recent title like Resident Evil 5 with friends.

Older fans of the franchise are jumping in their seats for the HD remaster of the 2002 Resident Evil, while newer gamers are crossing their fingers and praying that Capcom gets Resident Evil 7 done right as rumors fly that the company has it under development. Clearly the company has listened to player feedback, as Capcom has agreed that Resident Evil 6 felt ‘bloated’, and that there was a cry for a return to survival horror games after the release of Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS, and later for the PS3Wii U, Xbox 360, and PC.

Which leads us to the rumors of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. While no official announcement has been made, a screenshot and listing for the game ‘Biohazard Revelations 2’ were found on Xbox.com, though both have been removed since then. This discovery was made by the French site Gamer In A Box.

With Capcom citing that Resident Evil: Revelations was a financial highlight of last year, it really isn’t a surprise that the company would consider a sequel to the title. The single screenshot released brings to mind the Resident Evil 5 DLC, Lost in Nightmares, which was probably my favorite scenario from the 2009 title.

What hopes do you have for the Resident Evil franchise? What do you hope Capcom will bring to a sequel of the original Revelations game? And do you think Capcom will be able to make amends for Resident Evil 6 with these announcements?

  1. I only played the demo for Revelations on the Wii U, since I didn’t own a 3DS until earlier this year. It seemed really neat and it’s still on my to do list. I think I also liked RE6 more than most for some odd reason, probably because the campaign multiplayer seemed a bit better. Although for some ungodly reason they kept the utter shitfest of a split-screen layout from RE5.

    1. I liked the fact that they played with the gameplay of RE6, and each characters campaign had a different feel. Chris’s was more action packed while Leon’s was more survival horror.

      I think I picked up Revelations for the PS3 on clearance recently so it’s on my list to play. Frickin’ backlog man. I still need to finish RE6. I could never find someone who wanted to play or finish it. They would either ditch or would want to start over again, and I hate playing with AIs

      1. Niad and I beat Leon’s campaign and thought it was pretty okay. Definitely felt more survival horror than the others, but the zombies seemed oddly placed. It was either one or a million of them, which made the pacing really, really off. At least it wasn’t Operation Raccoon City. My god, what a mess.

      2. I weirdly loved ORC and I don’t know why. I have no explanation.

        Also a bug keeps attacking me. I’m blaming Whiskers- I mean Wesker.

      3. ORC.. man oh man, did I hate that game. I liked its class-based gameplay, but for a game to take place during the pinnacle of the Resident Evil storyline and really fail to do anything with it was baffling.

      4. It was co-developed by Capcom and Slant Six, the company behind some of the SOCOM games that eventually closed its doors in 2013. It was definitely an interesting idea, and one that is definitely more fun if you have 3 friends to play with online.. that’s that’s a very big “if”.

      5. This actually made me go back to Cheap Boss Attack to read my original ORC review. My last sentence about summed it up.

        “Operation Raccoon City is an unfinished trainwreck that could only be outdone by an actual zombie apocolypse.”

      6. Omg. That is an amazing way to end it. I’m giggling like a dork over here. … So like normal.

        I would always run into that problem too: No one would be online. Or I would get the friends who would only want to play one side or the other. I even had friends who would only play the last level and would refuse to join a game in progress unless it was that final death match.

  2. P.S. Resident Evil Revelations is only $10 this weekend on PS3 if you download it from PSN. Now seems like a good time for anyone wanting to check it out.
