Following Capcom’s brilliant success with the Resident Evil HD Remaster, it looks like Capcom is open to remastering its highly adored sequel. When development ended on the HD Remaster, Resident Evil producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, began throwing ideas around about the ‘RE2 project’, and Capcom have shown interest.
On the official Resident Evil Facebook page, Hirabayashi posted a comment saying “Hello RE fans! This is H [Hirabayashi] again! Right after the RE HD Remaster project was finished, I actually started putting together my ideas for this ‘RE2 Project’. So, I just brushed it up and went to see my boss to present the basic concept of the project already…”
“We would like to express our deepest appreciation to all Resident Evil fans, for your passion, enthusiasm and continued support for the Resident Evil brand. Enthusiasm for a Resident Evil 2 Remake is something we’ve been hearing from you over the years, and has drawn some recent attention in the media.
“However, as the team owns the RE brand, we’re not certain how we feel about this approach, and would like to ask your honest and frank opinion about the “Resident Evil 2 Remake” and what the brand identity is supposed to be about?”
The results spoke for themselves.
The excitement kind of built up due to a fan-made project which remade Resident Evil 2 using Unreal Engine 4 , which you can see below. Fans loved the look of it, and the additions made, including features added to the series in later releases.
It looks like Resident Evil 2 HD Remaster could get the green light, but how long shall we be waiting to get our zombified hands on it? Who knows, but still, the fact it’s this far into consideration, we’re willing to wait as long as it happens!
