Capcom making sequel to well-received horror.

Xbox.com has leaked Resident Evil: Revelations 2, the unannounced sequel to Resident Evil: Revelations.

Both the below box art and screenshot are hosted on Xbox.com. However, a listing for the game cannot be found on the website.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Resident Evil: Revelations 2

Right now, we only have the Xbox 360 box art, but we’re assuming PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions are also in development.

It’s worth noting that last month, Russian retailer Videoigr posted (and later removed) listings for both this and a “DmC Devil May Cry Ultimate” for PS4 and Xbox One.

Thanks, NeoGAF (via Gamer In A Box).

    That has to be the laziest most uninspired box art I’ve seen in quite some time.

  • Roflcopterskater

    I really like how you guys completely forget to mention Wii U AT ALL.
    It’s not like the first game started on a Nintendo Handheld or something…

  • PrinceHeir

    Why Revelations 2? So will have to wait another year for RE7 :

    • Dick Mountainjoy

      Why does it matter? it’s not like there’s a great canon thread story, or that 6 was even remotely worth having a follow up.

  • Nice Boat

    I just hope they avoid those teenage drama lines like “Chris, how much do you trust Jill?”

  • Elle

    I hope this isn’t episodic like the last game. please only have 2 or 3 characters and only one location with varied environments. No awful side characters this time please.

    Count me in, I loved the first one and I was a fan of DmC too. Give it all to me BABYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • xXVergiliusXx

    Wait, no version for 3DS? That would be bullshit! RE:R was awesome because it returned to its roots, why skip the system that at least respected what RE stands for?

    • Solomon_Kano

      That Revelations HD exists and was successful should have been a sign that they wouldn’t be going for portability next time around, were they to do a sequel.

    I’m not feeling great about this. I mean, more Revelations is certainly good as far as Resident Evil titles go. But man… they need to reboot this, gameplay-wise. AND story-wise, come to think of it. They need another visionary, like Shinji Mikami. And this one needs brand new gameplay. I’m tired of the shooting, I’m tired of the QTEs, I’m tired of the bombastic Hollywood action, and I’m tired of the same characters being in all the games. This hasn’t been scary for Leon, Chris, Jill and the others for a decade now – they know about zombies, Umbrella and all that sh**.

    They need a visionary, and they need new gameplay. How about really interactive environments, the ability to manipulate things, far less guns, far more aggressive enemies that are remain constant in the environments until you kill them?

    Imagine a new character (or let’s bring back Elza Walker! She never got to actual be in a game that CAME OUT) being thrown into this situation, so all of it is new and scary to them, and they’re hunted by monsters and AREN’T expert marksmen armed to the teeth prepared for this thing. Instead, you can run into a room, knock over desks and other furniture, drag it in front of doors to barricade it, etc. Monsters are punching on the door, lights are shaking (dynamic lights!), and your barricade won’t hold. But you can grab a poker from the fireplace in the room to defend yourself, or grab a pot to throw or something, for when the monsters come in.

    It would still be actioney, and gamers would still be constantly doing things and engaged. But it would be a HORROR-focused brand of action. Not another third person over-the-shoulder shooter.

      Only way I see that happening is if they reboot the entire series. I’m expecting more the same for this one really. Which I don’t mind whatsoever especially the online, I really enjoyed it a lot with the deep customization with the weapons and the leveling too.

      I’m sure they’re up to something when it comes to RE. I guess they want to milk these series because the first one sold well and they’re already began once again on the whole re release thing again with GC RE version.

      I understand though, I wouldn’t mind them to get back into the horror genre but hopefully with the new Silent Hill coming out whenever, they’ll probably do the whole wait and see approach on that and if it’s a success or not.

      They def. need someone new to take over. The same people need to go and they need to find some fresh folks to reinvent the series all over again.

    • RedWolfe

      I agree with you completely. In fact, I had a conversation with a friend the other day in which I said almost the exact same thing verbatim.

      I think the most glaring issue is the characters, to be honest.They have been in this situation too many times now. It’s not new and it’s not scary for them and they have to write the plot accordingly. This means that it won’t be scary for the player. How are we supposed to feel horror when we’re in control with a wise-cracking, government, super agent or a ridiculously buff, expert marksman, who’s now the leader of an anti bioterrorism organization that’s armed to the teeth.

      They need to either stick them in secondary roles as NPCs or let them go completely in favor of a new setting and a new plot.

      Seeing as this is a sequel, we probably won’t see these ideas come to life in this particular game but I really hope they implement some of these ideas on the next numbered installment (or not?)

      Maybe they should take a page out of other successful reboots and just name it “Resident Evil.”

    • Dick Mountainjoy

      I’m strongly against REboot. Namely because it would just turn into a Wesker fanwank, and that goober basically turned RE into a shonen anime.

      • tokyobassist

        It was destined to go Super Saiyan the moment Leon and Ada decided to bring their comb overs and love story into RE2.

        Just saying. I love that game but that was kind of a foreshadowing especially seeing how ridiculous they are in RE4 and 6.

        • Dick Mountainjoy

          Not at all, CV started it by turning Wesker into a Comic-Book supervillain, then UC sealed it by turning him into a Mary Sue who did literally everything in the series and made stuff from the movies canon.

          RE4 was a step in the right direction, by shifting the series from the formula that burned out so many people, as shown by the massive sales drop between RE2 and Zero rolling around.

          And Leon and Ada did that same stuff in 2, so I’m not sure what your point is there.

          • tokyobassist

            Perhaps Resident Evil needs to die then because honestly it sucks as an action game and it’s not doing very well at being scary.

            All good because there is plenty of series new and old to look forward to in the horror genre.

            • Dick Mountainjoy

              People have become so accustomed to the new type of PC Indie Slender/Amnesia walk slowly down dark rooms until skelington jumps out horror that I feel games like Classic RE just couldn’t thrive anymore.

              But it probably is better off dead, like SH should have after 3.

              • tokyobassist

                Thank god somebody that’s understands the travesty that is Silent Hill 4: The Room. Anything redeeming about that game got flushed by poor design choices but the Teamu Sirento mob of course throws a tantrum anytime I put that game on blast.

                • Dick Mountainjoy

                  The setting of 4 is nice, but it’s such an ordeal to play through. First the escort mission stuff, then replaying all the levels, then the stupid room possession stuff, the ghost that do aura damage…

                  Plus Walter is such a lame stalker enemy, he just looks like a hobo.

    • tokyobassist

      I still find it hilarious how they won’t re-release Outbreak to test the waters especially now that online gaming on consoles is far beyond what we had during the original release.

      I personally never played it online and I always thought it was a cool idea. I’d hope they’d revisit something like that in the future.

    • Nice Boat

      RmE: Resident may be Evil

  • sunK1D

    Definitely more interested in the ReREmake.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Not terribly surprising, given the reception to Revelations overall and how well HD in particular sold.

  • Anime10121

    Revelaitons 2!

    Still need to get around to playing the first one of these days :/

    • Solomon_Kano

      I was just regretting that I didn’t make that joke, but you did haha

      • Anime10121

        Did it in OT too, nobody caught it there though XD

        • Solomon_Kano

          They regularly make typos, so they probably never will lol. Maybe JTO will, if she’s around.

  • Sergio Montecarlo Vile

    Afff parece que a CAPCOM nao aprende mesmo! Prefiro a versão HD do primeiro :)

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    Finally Capcom is comprising the public.

    • Anime10121

      Do what now? Me thinks you need to rephrase that…

    • tokyobassist

      About that Mega Man though…http://i.imgur.com/NFESI.gif

      • Nice Boat

        And saved

  • tokyobassist

    Am I the only one who thought Revelations wasn’t THAT good?

    Not trying to be negative so I’ll explain. I thought the gun modding mechanic was awesome. I wouldn’t mind seeing something like that return. The atmosphere in the boat sections were well done and sound design was also top notch. Raid Mode was a excellent idea for multiplayer integration instead of ham-fisting multiplayer into the single player experience like RE5.

    However, I thought the constant shifting between characters killed any kind of suspense the game ever tried to build up to. Much scatterbrained and would’ve been better having two separate cohesive scenarios or just one just to maintain the tension. The resource conservation falls flat as well when the game has many moments where you’re forced to fight or use up resources to progress. It’s artificially tense.

    That said I hope they use this as an learning opportunity to bring a fun game that fans like myself can at least appreciate instead of downright disliking it like ORC or 6.

    • Dick Mountainjoy

      I can see the problem with character switching, though it didn’t bother me.

      But battles that suck up ammo is pretty standard for RE, even in classic, that’s basically the point of bosses. and that’s not even getting how certain games (CV) can totally screw you over with boss timing if you don’t know ahead of time/guess well.

      • tokyobassist

        Code Veronica X is in fact the hardest of the classic RE because it’s so unforgiving though (unprepared for the Tyrant fight? Walk your ass back to the title screen and hit New Game).

        Most of the them particularly 1-4 are pretty forgiving when it comes to having enough ammo. Especially RE3 since you can craft ammo.

        • Dick Mountainjoy

          It’s all about picking your fights, just like old RE. The only part I really consider a exceptionally unbalanced weapon drain is the fight agaist MAYDAY in Rev. The rest is pretty standard RE fare.

    • DrForbidden

      No, you’re not. I didn’t enjoy the PS3 version of revelations. I had high hopes, due to the good reviews the 3DS version received, that Revelations would be able to rescue the RE franchise somewhat after the abysmal RE6, but I came away extremely disappointed.

      • tokyobassist

        The game is far from garbage but I dunno. Seeing all these people talk about it being a return to the roots is complete BS from what I’ve played. It has it’s moments but it’s far cry from what even made RE4 good. I dare say this game suffers from being very boring at sporadic intervals and to be boring in Resident Evil means your atmosphere or tension isn’t very engaging.

        Something’s off about Revelations and I can’t ever put the words together.

        • DrForbidden

          Your ‘not being able to find the words’ is exactly the words I was looking for… :)

  • tokyobassist

    Also where do we go to bitch to Capcom about the inclusion of Claire and Barry in a new game? It’s about that time…

  • Mikail

    lol the comments from IGN is hilarious!

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/08/19/resident-evil-revelations-2-leaked

    “Breaking
    news: Microsoft secured this title as a timed exclusive for Xbox
    platforms. Phil Spencer said that they wished they had something of the
    quality of Silent Hills, but they had no quality horror IPs, so they
    made an agreement with Capcom so Microsoft could compete.”

    • Sav

      lool.

  • Azure

    I hope they improve the enemies designs in this one..

    • Sav

      yeah, more variety,

  • $3582264

    Revelations was one of the few recent games i thoroughly enjoyed. And yeah the shifting between the characters sucked. If this sequel comes out for the PC in physical form i am going to buy it day one.

  • Hidayat246

    FUCKING YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I hope jessica is back

    • Daniel Masterson

      ya I love those assets she has.

    • Sav

      would be cool to have her back as returning nemesis, but i highly doubt it, all that shit on the ship blew up i think lol.

      • Hidayat246

        Until end, she still alive

        Remain me about RE 4 ending actually
        Expect you replace glanados island with european-style restaurant

        If become almost like ada IMO

  • SuperLuigi

    I still haven’t my Resident Evil “Revelaitions” box. No clue why it flipped my photo sideways

  • Sav

    Claire needs to be the lead protagonist or gtfo.

    she’s totally overdue for a game.
