In a brief video just released by the official Resident Evil feed, Capcom have confirmed they are working on Resident Evil 2 Remake.
Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, a.k.a. H, a Capcom producer from their R&D Division 1 broke the news via an enthusiastic post on YouTube. H has been a driving force in recent weeks, asking fans how they felt about a remake and presenting a pitch to his bosses. We salute your efforts, good sir!
This is great news and something fans have been asking for for years now. We’re pretty excited as Resident Evil 2 was never given the full remake treatment back on GameCube, but the recent HD remaster of the original’s remake awoke the fans’ desire to see Resi 2 remade.
There are no other details like potential release dates, images or trailers, but just the news that Resident Evil 2 Remake is happening is good enough for us for now. These guys are probably screwed though. Take a look at the announcement video below and we have a few pieces of related reading for you too.
