Official reports from Capcom's Investor Relations page today reveal that both Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 will release before the end of March 2019, within the current financial year.
Specifically, the announcement released by Capcom states this:
Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced its two major titles for the current fiscal year. Resident Evil 2 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC is scheduled for release on January 25, 2019, and Devil May Cry 5 for the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, PlayStation®4 system and PC is scheduled for a Spring 2019 release.
However, it comes under the header...
Capcom to Release Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 Before End of March 2019!
With Resident Evil 2, Capcom are releasing what is considered the classic of the series and remaking it completely for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game has been remade in the past for consoles like the Gamecube, but never with the graphical fidelity that is available today. This will be a huge boon for fans of the series and the original, which can include myself.
Devil May Cry 5 was revealed yesterday at E3 and confirmed for a 'Spring 2019' release. As this reveal indicates, it will be an early spring release. While this move is no doubt based on increasing the figures of the current financial year, that won't matter to fans of the series one bit. The big boost for them is that they get the game earlier than they likely expected.
What are your thoughts on the two games and the release dates? Are you looking forward to them? I'm personally not a huge fan of DMC, but I'm certainly looking forward to the Resident Evil 2 remake. Roll on January 25th.
