Horror Lovers Rejoice: Resident Evil 2 Remake Confirmed

We greatly appreciated the Resident Evil HD Remaster we got earlier this year.

But Capcom is doing us one better.

As revealed in the video below, the publisher will release a remake of the classic horror sequel, Resident Evil 2. Headed up by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi (the producer for Resident Evil HD), this new project is possible "thanks to your incredible passion and support." He's talking to you, loyal fans.

Hirabayashi added:

"You've been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade, and we haven't been able to make it happen... until now! We at R&D Division 1 will do our best to take on your feedback and deliver the gameplay experience you've been waiting for."

It seems clear that the new project is in the early stages of development, as it'll be "some time" before they can deliver an update. Many believe this effort by Capcom was in response to the very well-received fan-made Resident Evil 2 remake, which Capcom acknowledged. Horror aficionados should be pleased, yes?

There are no confirmed platforms yet but expect the Resident Evil 2 Remake to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Just be patient for more info!

Well right about time Capcom, took you long enough to finally make that decision. Personally I haven't bought yet RE1HD and will not buy RE0HD either, as I finished them on GC like 10 times and also there is always something new to play (incoming MGSV!). RE2HD on the other hand is a day 1 buy for me as I will treat it as a new game (last time I played was 15 years ago).

Please don't screw this up Capcom! Non of this TPP bullshit. Stick to the original and just up the graphics like in RE1HD. Ok, the added locations where also cool:)

This isn't the time for a Resident Evil 2 Remake... The brand name is in shambles after RE6. They need to focus on a Resident Evil 7 and but fix the series. But hey if this succeeds like the 1st remake and they notice a demand for the less action packed approach to RE I am all for it.

This series got screwed with RE4 (for me, for others RE5) where zombies were substituted with las plagas and TPP was implemented. While they were good shooters it didn't feel RE for me.
The guy announcing the RE2 Remake should have "RE7 - We won't do it!" on the back of his t-shirt. Lol.

Please, PLEASE don't change the gameplay. What made RE2 as well as FF7 so great wasn't just the characters and the story but also the gameplay! I wish these developers would understand this. Fans of these games aren't looking for complete overhauls of the gameplay.

Maybe I'm just being overly negative.

Easily my favorite 'RE! Just hope they get rid of the tank controls. Even if they don't this is a day 1 for me

Yeah, they should give us option to choose tank control or over the shoulder camera...
