In less than a month, Capcom will be releasing one of the most awaited games for 2017, "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard." As is expected in any upcoming popular franchise, launches and updates were data mined immediately to see if the developers have added anything in the game that they have yet to announce.
One would think that the massive leak that was reported exhaustively the past few weeks would leave nothing for Capcom to reveal, but it seems that Capcom still has a few cards up its sleeve.
There have been some rumors that a "Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo" might be part of the coming launch of "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard." There really is no official statement from Capcom regarding the speculations, but a Redditor found the code 00551/90009 in the "Beginning Hour" demo that was released by Capcom. It should be noted that the code of "Resident Evil: Director's Cut" is SLUS-00551 SLUS-90009.
This has then sparked the rumors that the demo for "Resident Evil 2 Remake" could possibly be released with "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard."
In other "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" news, producer Masachika Kawata was interviewed by Game Informer, in which the producer clarified that although "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" might look like a reboot, especially since they have decided to go back to the roots of "Resident Evil" titles, which is horror, exploration, and puzzle-solving, there were a lot of new things that the game has to offer.
The producer also revealed that when they made "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard," they took inspiration from a wide range of media in terms of horror. They researched movies, horrors stories, and even other games. The producer did reveal that although it wasn't the main influence for "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard," one of the biggest influence of the upcoming game was an old game in the "Resident Evil" franchise itself.
"Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is scheduled to be released on Jan. 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
