Is there a connection between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 2?

Yes, Resident Evil 4 Remake will be loosely connected to the events of Resident Evil 2 as Leon will be making a few references to it throughout the game’s story. It’s currently unclear, though, what kind of remarks our protagonist will be making. But since he was directly involved with the Raccoon City incident, he will most likely be commenting on some of his more traumatic experiences during that time.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that you won’t need to know the plot of Resident Evil 2 to play Resident Evil 4 Remake. The events within each game take place in different locations and timelines, meaning you can skip over to the fourth installment if you choose to do so.

Additionally, the remade entry will feature a completely different cast of characters – aside from Leon and Ada Wong that is. You also won’t be able to play as Claire Redfield this time around, much to the dismay of the heroine’s fan base.
