Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is an episodic survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom as part of the Resident Evil series. The game is a follow up to Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil 5. This marks the return of Claire Redfield as the protagonist, and the first time Barry Burton is a playable story character in the main series. The first installment was released in February 2015.
The plot is set between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, in 2011. The story begins when Claire and her co-workers, including the newcomer and playable protagonist, Moira Burton, are at a party in the headquarters of the NGO Terra Save, when they are attacked by unknown assailants and taken away to a deserted island.
The game was released for Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Switch in 2017 along with the port of the first Revelations. The reviews were mixed; the setting, story, characters and the co-op gameplay were praised, but the graphics and some technical issues were criticized. As of the end of March 2019, the title reached a combined 2.4 million units sold, surpassing its predecessor and becoming Capcom’s 25th-bestselling game
