This was brought up in an older thread. But whatever this is could line up with a Game Informer March Cover Reveal as well.
Ben probably getting the scoop like he did with Mega Man reveal and GI cover issue there. While Tim Turi is hooking them up.
RE2 is my favorite Eeeeevil and tbh I don't give a damn what perspective it's in just as long as they capture the atmosphere and essence of the original. As RE7 proved, at least to me, first person is fine for the series. It was still claustrophobic and super atmospheric, and you can do every mechanic traditional RE is known for in first person.
If it's a third person more action type game, the same more or less applies. You can do great atmosphere in third person, as the earlier parts of RE4 demonstrated. It doesn't have to have tanks and yakuza zombie motorcycle chases to justify that kind of angle.
Finally, if it's like the first remake with the traditional views, ya know, that works too.
Essentially, don't fuck up the execution and I'm good.
So hype for this. RE2 is my absolute favorite RE, one of my favorite games of all time. Still super disappointed they didn't go with Alyson Court. Hopefully Claire doesn't look like Ellen this time around.
