Capcom should be more than proud with their efforts they put into the remake of Resident Evil 2, the game has widely received by the public and now has reached a new Steam milestone.


According to Steam's own game statistics, Capcom's remake of Resident Evil 2 has pushed its way to Steam's top 10 most played games on its platform. Taking the lead at the time of writing this is DOTA 2 with 312,000 current players, followed by CS:GO with 304,000 players, PUBG with 162,000 players, Rainbow Six Siege with 69,000 players, Team Fortress 2 with 54,000 players and then finally Resident Evil 2 Remake with 44,000 players.

At the time of launch for Resident Evil 2, the game peaked out at 67,312 players making it the 6th most-played game on Steam's platform. That is quite an achievement for a game that is a remake of a title that was originally released back in 1996, in my opinion Capcom should be very proud of these numbers and the communities response to the title. Looking at the Steam reviews for the game, Resident Evil 2 comes in with the "Overwhelmingly Positive" category, with most players saying that have thoroughly enjoyed the game.
