After first asking if fans were receptive to a Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom went ahead and more or less confirmed the project’s existence.
Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, known as “H” on the Resident Evil Facebook page, confirmed that, at least on the conceptual level, a remake of Resident Evil 2 is in the works.
“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…” says Hirabayashi.
