Capcom has announced that it will be delaying its upcoming episodic horror adventure game, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, by a week for “polishing work and gameplay optimisation.” The game was originally scheduled to release on February 17, but will now launch on February 25 worldwide for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Steam, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

Capcom also confirmed the release schedule for the game’s remaining three episodes, which will roll out weekly on March 4, March 11 and March 18. There will also be a retail release for the game which will consist of all four episodes and will launch on March 20 in Europe and March 18 in North America.

The game depicts four different adventures, beginning with the return of fan favorite Claire Redfield, an employee for a anti-bioterrorism organisation known as Terra Save. Redfield and Moira Burton, the other protagonist, awake in an abandoned detention facility on a remote island and must work together to survive.

Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be picking the game up when it launches next month.

  • Wow and they only need a week for polishing work and gameplay optimization? Sounds like a fancy way of saying we found a bug that breaks the game.

    I won’t be picking it up. Haven’t played a Resident Evil since 3. Two years ago, I bought Resident Evil 1. It was pretty awful 🙂 But hey its still legendary.

      Hmm, I didn’t think of it that way, but that’s actually why it probably was delayed now that I think about it haha. I’ve never really invested myself into any of the past Resident Evil games, maybe Ill give this one a shot depending on how the review scores depict it.

      • I feel like polishing takes more than a week even if its more polishing. I’ve completed the second and third ones. They just seem so archaic now. Same thing with the old 7th Guest on PC. Controls that weren’t even good 20 years ago. Actually playing Resident Evil 1 for the first time 2 years ago I thought wow this is really a point and click game that they put a character into. Probably not what really happened, but everything is so slow and clunky. Fighting against the controls is what raises the tension. You need to kill or run. Never both, because you’ll end up getting hurt.

          That’s a shame the control scheme is clunky, I’ve always thought about maybe going back and really checking out the previous games

          • Its like driving a tank. Well they’re about to release a new version of Resident Evil 1 on PC, Its only the fourth version of the game. There was that remake on GameCube, and the Director’s Cut. Now there’s the new PC version. Just keep giving people what they already have. Its cool though. People want it, they’ll buy it.

              You sir are an idiot. You do not deserve to play ANY Resident Evil game if you don’t like the classics which are far superior to anything recently added to the series.

              • lol thanks person with a name that makes no sense. I’ve completed the first three Resident Evil games and never played four and up. At some point of my life I used to speed run Resident Evil 2 for N64. Then I even bought it for PS1. I prefer that and Resident Evil 3 to Resident Evil 1: Director’s Cut.
