During Sony's E3 2018 presentation we saw that Resident Evil 2 was being remade, a gameplay trailer was displayed during the conference and it did not disappoint. What is disappointing though, Capcom currently has no plans on bringing the title to the Nintendo Switch.

This information was confirmed by Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn during E3 2018. Lunn was asked if a Nintendo Switch iteration was planned, Lunn replied with "No, not at this time. We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment."

This is not a permanent goal for Capcom, so Nintendo Switch users don't be upset quite just yet. Capcom has already brought Resident Evil 7 to the Nintendo Switch in the form of a cloud streaming service, we could see this very same form of cloud based streaming service for a Resident Evil 2 Remake later down the track.

Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
