After so much fan demand, internal hand wringing, and years of speculation, Capcom has finally confirmed that Resident Evil 2, often considered to be the very best game in the franchise (and at the very least, considered to be the best classic style Resident Evil game), will be remade, in the style of the original Resident Evil remake for the Gamecube, which was remastered for Xbox and PlayStation consoles, alongside PC, earlier this year.
“We’re pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development,” a Capcom representative said in a statement provided to VideoGamer.com today.
“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.”
“It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved,” added Hirabayashi. “The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans’ passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want.”
As of right now, no system or release date for the game has been announced, though PS4, Xbox One, and PC are probably a good bet for the targeted systems.
