A fan remake of Resident Evil 2 caught everyone’s attention recently, including Capcom’s. The company’s R&D Division 1 took to its official Facebook page, asking fans for thoughts on a Resident Evil 2 remake. Fan response was overwhelming, prompting Capcom to thank everyone in a subsequent post for their “passion” and “continued support” of the Resident Evil brand. We were also told that a company boss had questioned whether a game “worth seeing” could be created as an “answer” to fan enthusiasm.
Now, Capcom has confirmed via another post that ideas for a Resident Evil 2 remake were already being put together following the completion of Resident Evil HD Remaster.
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…

In other words, it seems that Resident Evil 2 remake is likely to be realized, which is in line with Capcom’s recently announced business strategy of creating remakes for hit titles.
