Resident Evil 2 Remake Officially a Reality

Resident Evil 2 Remake

Capcom announced it has approved development on a Resident Evil 2 remake.

Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, a producer from the publisher’s research and development team who will be leading the project, made the announcement on YouTube. Sporting a shirt with the words “We Do It!”, Hirabyashi thanked Resident Evil Fans for their support and passion on the project.

“You’ve been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade,” said Hirabyashi, “and we haven’t been able to make it happen…until now.”

Resident Evil 2 remake has been teased by Capcom for several weeks on Facebook, leading most to assume the game was being considered for development. More than just a standard HD remaster, the Resident Evil 2 remake will be built from the ground up, similar to the impressive Resident Evil HD.

Very little details have been provided and in the video Hirabyashi says it will be awhile before an updates will be given. In the meantime, Capcom is also working on releasing an HD remaster of Resident Evil 0.

Resident Evil 2 Remaster Announcement

Quick Take

With the Devil May Cry 4 remaster, Resident Evil remakes, and the upcoming Mega Man Legacy Collection, it seems as if Capcom is paying respect to its most beloved franchises. Resident Evil 2 is a favorite in the series and it looks to be in good hands with Hirabyashi. Is there a chance Capcom is reintroducing these classics to prepare us for new main entry releases? A Mega Man X9? A Resident Evil 7? We can always dream.
