Resident Evil Revelations 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 — and other platforms — in early 2015, Capcom producer Masachika Kawata announced at a Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia press conference today.

Revelations 2 is being developed by the core staff members of the previous entry, which hit Nintendo 3DS and previous generation consoles, but will be set in a new period and a new setting, Kawata said. The game's protagonists will not be Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, Kawata noted, but no other game specifics were announced. The game was announced alongside a live action teaser with the tagline "Evil is watching," but no gameplay footage was shown.

Kawata said Capcom will reveal new information about Resident Evil Revelations 2 next week, and a playable demo will be available at this month's Tokyo Game Show.

In a separate announcement, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations 2 would also come to PlayStation 3, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.

The existence of Resident Evil Revelations 2 leaked in August when art and a screenshot of the game showed up on
