Are we going to see a demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake?
Resident Evil 7 teaser may hint at a Resident Evil 2 remake demo
The above image was posted on NeoGAF. It’s a loading screen in the Resident Evil 7 teaser and seems innocuous enough, but some people think the strip of numbers on the left-hand side are anything but.
The second string of numbers corresponds to the product ID of Resident Evil 1 – specifically the director’s cut that included a demo for Resident Evil 2.
The logic on the thread is that the director’s cut of Resi 1 was available without the Resi 2 demo and with its own product code, so there must be some kind of significance to it.
The current consensus is that we’ll see a demo for the remake of Resident Evil 2 packed in with Resident Evil 7 when it comes out next year.
It’s a standalone experience that won’t be featured in the game itself.
Matt Martin has given it a go and it has his stamp of approval – for the most part.
Resident Evil 7 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on January 24, 2017.
