The Resident Evil 2 remake was announced in 2015 and the first look and release date of January 25, 2019 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 were revealed at the E3 2018 PlayStation Showcase. We played the long-awaited remake at E3 and feel that it returns to the franchise's horror roots in the best way.
