Resident Evil 2 remake release date PS4, Xbox One, PC

Mark your calendar and call in sick, because the Resident Evil 2 remake release date is almost here.


The year that the Resident Evil 2 remake releases is finally here, and fans are all in a tizzy of excitement at the prospective of revisiting the horrifying Raccoon City. There’s a lot to do in preparation for the worldwide event, though the first thing will no doubt be marking in your calendar the release date of Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 2 remake release date

Resident Evil 2 is set to release worldwide on January 25, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. This will no doubt make a lot of long-time Resident Evil fans very happy, as it’s the perfect way to start off the New Year.

This will mark another January release for Capcom, who released the critically-acclaimed Monster Hunter: World in January of last year. Resident Evil 2 has a lot of weight behind its name, though being a single-player experience it will be interesting to see if it’s as wildly successful as Monster Hunter. Regardless of its earnings, we here at Shacknews are pretty excited to get back to Raccoon City and experience the harrowing events all over again.

David Craddock managed to get a thorough play session of the Resident Evil 2 remake at E3 2018, and he wrote up an equally thorough preview. For fans of the series who are worried about the direction the Resident Evil 2 remake is going, let David assuage your fears. By all accounts, this Resident Evil 2 remake is set to, dare I say it, perfect what was offered with the original.

With only a couple of weeks left before the Resident Evil 2 release date lands, players will no doubt be trawling through the internet looking for every scrap of information about their favorite horror title. Take some time to check out Shacknews’ Resident Evil 2 remake coverage as you wait for January 25 to shamble into view. You can also check out the Resident Evil 2 official site for more information.
