Capcom announces Resident Evil 2 remake approved for development
That was quick..
A couple of weeks ago, Capcom asked their fans if they wanted to see a Resident Evil 2 remake. The answer was a resounding "yes."
And while Capcom may not listen to their fans when it comes to Mega Man, it appears they are at least listening for Resident Evil. The company announced today that the Resident Evil 2 remake is officially happening. The game will be in the hands of Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, producer of the Resident Evil HD Remaster (which released earlier this year), and Capcom R&D Division 1.
"We’re pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development. As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don’t have any additional information or assets to share at this time. However, for now we want our fans to know that we appreciate all the feedback and support we’ve received on this title. We’re looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for".
