Recently, a Resident Evil 2 remake was announced at the PlayStation E3 2018 event. Unfortunately, it was unclear if the game was a PlayStation 4 exclusive or coming to other platforms. Luckily, we reached out to Capcom and the team provided us with confirmation that Resident Evil 2 was indeed coming to Xbox One on January 25, 2019 with Xbox One X enhancements in tow.
When GamingBolt asked Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn about the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions, he confirmed the resolution and frame rate.
Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. For those unfamiliar with the story, players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill. Both Leon and Claire have their own playable campaigns, allowing gamers to see the story from a different point of view.
Resident Evil 2 is currently available for preorder on Xbox One for $59.99. If you loved the iconic game back then, be sure to give this updated version a go next year.

I bought an X for the quality of the graphics, so it’s 4K mode for me.
Same here. I know 30 FPS isn't ideal but the boost to visuals and clarity is amazing! It's too good to pass.
It probably only played at 30fps originally
Probably 15 fps lol
Why are they charging full price for this remake/rehash? Should be like $30. I'll wait till it goes on sale.
Because like me, fans of the original are willing to pay literally anything to get a remake. You sir are clearly NOT a fan of the original.
I played RE2 on PS1 when it first came out. I also played RE1 as well. I just think it's crazy charging full price for a 20 year old rehash.
SoD2 is a $30, this is more like a $44.99
So 4k @ 30fps? Sigh
