Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Listing Appears -- What Would You Like to See?

Capcom may be working on a sequel to the 2012 game, according to a listing spotted on Xbox.com.

Japanese publisher Capcom is working on sequel to 2012's Resident Evil: Revelations, according to a listing that appeared last night on Xbox.com. Polygon reports that box art and a screenshot for the game were published there, though they have since been removed.

Resident Evil: Revelations originally released for 3DS in 2012, before high-definition versions came to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC last year. It's unknown how well the 3DS version sold, but Capcom said in February that the console and PC versions have combined for over 1.1 million in sales.

Though Capcom has not officially announced a sequel to Resident Evil: Revelations, sales of that level--and the game's above-average review scores--make a follow-up sound likely.

Capcom announced earlier this month that it will release an HD version of the original Resident Evil for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC early next year. The company is also rumored to be working on Resident Evil 7, the next entry in the core series. The Resident Evil series is one of Capcom's biggest, having sold 61 million units across 92 different game releases to date.

RE:6 was good but RE:Revelations really, really sucked, especially for a $60 game. I don't want to spend my money on a sequel if it's anything as crappy as this first one. Plus, Capcom is incredibly sexist. They are one of the worst developers and publishers out there in regard to how they treat their female characters ... and the female gamers who play them. They should respect their female fan base more.

I want to see Leon and Claire again if not I'm never playing RE again. they had Chris and Jill in the first, it would only make sense to put the RE2 team back together.

Jill twerking..

As a a Raid Mode taunt, of course. You see, it can be a game mechanic..

What would I like to see?  Well thank you for asking!  Hmmm, how about a stark examination of the limits of human perseverance set against love, loss, regret and just a touch of joy and childlike innocence; a carefully nuanced script with excellent voice acting; gameplay that encourages careful decisions and rationing of resources over guns blazing violence; you know, basically TLOU.


What will I get?  Horribly stereotyped and trope ridden characters, grotesque zombies and mutants that blur the lines of humanity, gratuitous violence, overtly sexualized women (and disturbingly sexualized enemies) and cleavage.  Lots of cleavage!


This is why I don't make video games.

What would I like to see? KOTOR3 please.

I'm raising awareness for the cause of KOTOR3. If you want KOTOR3 say,

"GIVE ME SOME KOTOR, GIVE ME KOTOR 3"

I hope it comes to 3DS too. The original was far superior on the 3DS. It probably won't, but either way I'll be happy to see this happen.

Hell yeah more Revelations! Looking at Master of Unlocking's rear view never gets old!

I wonder whats on the cards for the next mainline entry in the series. I hope these alternate RE releases mean Capcom are going back to the drawing board with RE.

Great news. The main RE series has degenerated into an action/tps with sh*tty controls. Revelations went back to basics with more exploration and slower pacing while improving the gameplay. Sequel is well deserved.

I've barely touched my Ps3 copy of this game.

Could NOT believe they took out the 3D. The lack of 3D in gaming in general is ridiculous. how do people NOT want more 3d?

RE 2 remake .... but make the game play like RE 4 and RE 5

I would rather see a remake of Resident Evil 2.  Shoot, even make it kind of open world, that would be sweet.

Avobe average? But you gave it a 6. I want the RE 2 remake to be honest

Are they really calling it Revelations 2? That'd be dumb to say the least.

Capcom should totally reinvent the series. Start from the very beginning. Not a remake, but a prequel. Set it in Spencer Mansion in the late 1960's or 70's. No Chris, Jill, Wesker or ken doll Leon Kennedy. New characters only.

It should focus on  Oswell E. Spencer's experiments in the labs beneath the mansion. He should be the main antagonist. A fresh take on a series tarnished by recent entry's.

I liked how Revelations did things and thought Abyss mode was cool, but it was one of those games that quickly lust its lustre. Abyss mode needs to be less grindy, and the main game felt a little too statistical based rather than skill based. And for god's sake fix that dodge system!

I wouldn't mind another Revelations game, thought the original was great. Much better than 5 or 6.

Also no more nemesis BS. Killing Rachel once per chapter minimum got old.

I think we need the series turned into some crazy Jap sci-fi with arcade combat and music style, if it makes any sense then its not done right. Tons of interrupted button sequences. Oh, how about a squirrel that turns into a Moon-sized abomination?.

Explosions, cutscenes, and QTE's, please!


And I want a virus for every letter of the alphabet.

YES PLEASE.


But please get rid of T-Abyss.


Go back to real zombies and if you are releasing this on console first that takes care of the graphical fails of Revelations.


Ideally though please just reboot and this will actually be revelations. Carte blanche, please god. Start AT THE BEGINNING, unlike last time. NO MORE retcon.


Actually you know what, go back to the Hooked Man RE4 beta. The supernatural one with the weird scheisse.

@OllieBrown How exciting for the typical female gamer. @@ Yes, very true. I wish the peeps at Capcom had sense, but they don't... and oddly they still make a lot of money. Kinda disgusting.

@seann_currell_7 How is that possible? I've played both. I can't say one is better they're the same game.

@spacecadet25 That wouldnt be a remake then.. and no, everything pre-disgraceful RE4 has to stick to the classic roots.

spacecadet25

@Ripper_TV Good point.  It's the second set of "Revelations."  They should have called it "Resident Evil:  More Revelations", although that sounds pretty uninteresting.

spacecadet25

@Garm31  I would be interested in that.  And it would have to be new characters, like you said.  Otherwise the storyline wouldn't make sense, b/c they discovered the mansion and all the stuff going on in the first RE, so in the prequel those characters can't be involved.

But yeah, a prequel sounds bad-ass.  Maybe private investigators as the protagonists or something.

spacecadet25

@JoSilver  But neither Mario, Zelda/Link, or Samus from Metroid are in this game?  Seems unlikely to come to the Wii U.

@Vexov  Dead Space 3 has you covered on the moon-sized abomination front. It literally has a moon... made of zombies.

@grenadehh If only the 'Hook Man' version had been the final version... Then RE4 likely could have been crowned the genre's defining game, and one of gaming's finest works, as opposed to what we ended up with -- a solid, fun, but terribly disappointing game that derailed its own series and genre.

@spacecadet25 

Stars discovered the mansion in the first game. But that doe's mean that they were the first to discover what was going on. Remember they tried to bury or cover up the Mansion incident too.

@spacecadet25 @JoSilver So What!, I'm tired on having every game these days skipping the console I bought with my money! I want more games to buy!

@Pliger Yea RE4 was like we were all on a plane that the pilot just flat out nosedived, straight down, into the ocean and then it morphed into a submarine and we were like THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER. But then it kept going down, down, into the Marianna's trench or wherever, and we somehow didn't die and we were like "Wow I wish I didn't say this was cool."
