This page details one or more prototype versions of Resident Evil 2 (PlayStation).


Resident Evil 2 went through massive changes in its development. Halfway in development, Capcom attempted a first draft of the game that was scrapped and redone, dubbed Resident Evil 1.5. The pages below detail in chronological order, the constant changes the game had.

Resident Evil 1.5

1.5 represented a time when the development team struggled heavily with the game's scenario and setting throughout it's troubled development. The prototype below, the only one released so far, compiles all the playable segments up to that point in time.
