Rumor: Resident Evil Revelations 2 coming to PS4, XB1, 360, PS3
Rumor has it that Capcom plans to make the next mainline Resident Evil title a lot more like 2012’s 3DS title, Revelations. In that it will focus more on atmosphere and horror than straight up action though its still expected to be heavily centered around shooting.
Now a a large Russian retailer is listing Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PS4, Xbox One and 360/PS3. Whether this listing is accurate and a hint to an impending game reveal or what we don’t know yet.
A straight up sequel to the game makes sense. Revelations ended up a bit of a cliff hanger, hinting at a sequel back in February 2012.
Of course this listing points at no 3DS/Wii U installment, ironic since the first game was originally exclusive to the 3DS. And it also says the game will be cross-gen, something most fans will probably groan at.
Still, I’m sure they’re hoping a cross-gen RE title will make them some quick cash with the PS3/360 versions. They do have all the assets from Revelations HD just sitting there so why not? Obviously most fans will be more excited about the aspect of a full-blown Resident Evil title for PS4/XB1 but that may have to wait a few more years, at least for one built exclusively for the new consoles.
