Capcom have today announced the development of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for release on both current-generation and next-generation video game consoles next year. Acting as a sequel to the surprisingly-beloved Resident Evil: Revelations, this much-anticipated third-person-shooter title was first teased at a recent Sony press conference via a concept art-centric teaser video (below), with its official reveal occurring on the interwebs just a few short weeks later.
For those who didn't receive the chance to play it on Nintendo 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Nintendo WiiU or Xbox 360 (if it wasn't already obvious, Resi fans really didn't have much of an excuse to skip it), the original Revelations' narrative intersected with the pre-established storylines of the fourth and fifth full instalments in the increasingly acclaimed horror franchise, delving further into the character arcs of classic protagonists Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine than ever before. Details on the trajectory that the follow-up's overall plot will take are few and far between at present, but with Revelations having earned itself a solid average critical score of 80% over on Metacritic, the sub-series at least has a strong foundation from which to build on in its latest iteration. Stay tuned to On-Screen for more details on the sequel's premise, new gameplay features and the implications it'll hold for the future of Resident Evil as and when they arrive...
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will awaken from its deathly slumber on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC (sorry, WiiU owners - it looks as if Capcom needs to see more evidence of the hardware's potency before offering it a second chance) in early 2015.
