Resident Evil 2 Release Date

Resident Evil 2 will be released on Jan. 25. Roughly 21 years after the original was released. 

It's no surprise that companies are starting to follow the trend of Hollywood and redo old games. It can be difficult to come up with a brand new series, but adding a new graphics or engine to an already existing story gives developers a leg up on the competition

This works especially well for Horror games as the increase in graphics can directly affect the mood and theme of a game.
