The lights are on
Fans have been clamoring for another Resident Evil game, and it appears that they’ll be getting their wish. Many expected that the next console title would be Resident Evil 7, but it seems Capcom is going in a different direction.
French site Gamer in a Box spotted box art (using the series' Japanese Biohazard name), and a single image hosted on Xbox.com (since removed). Given the appearance on Microsoft’s site, a console release seems to be in the cards, even though the original Resident Evil Revelations launched first on 3DS in early 2012. The title made the jump to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC in mid-2013.
The existence of Resident Evil Revelations 2 was previously hinted at via Russian retailer VideoIGR, which pegged the game for Microsoft and Sony’s old and new consoles. For more on Resident Evil Revelations, check out our review.
