Although most people do believe that the Resident Evil 2 Remake is going to be released soon, Capcom has never really given us a date to look forward too.
When things were heating up for the Resident Evil 7 game, there was a rumor about Capcom possibly releasing the game with the new Resident Evil 7 game to boost the sales of the game. When it became clear that that was not going to happen, some people believe that we might still see a short demo of the remake when the Resident Evil 7 was released but of course, we know that that did not happen.
Now, months after Resident Evil 7 was released, we still have not heard about the remake. Some people think that with the Resident Evil 7 out of the picture, Capcom can now put all their attention in the Resident Evil 2 Remake but how long more will we have to wait.
There were speculations about Capcom possibly building the game from scratch which would explain the long development period.
