Resident Evil 2 Remake Is in Development, Capcom Confirms

Revealing a couple weeks ago that it was something they were thinking about doing, Capcom officially confirmed that a Resident Evil 2 Remake is in development.

Producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi said:

It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved. The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans’ passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want.

In a statement to Videogamer, a Capcom representative said, “As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don’t have any additional information or assets to share at this time.” Videogamer is also reporting that the Resident Evil 2 Remake will be made for modern platforms and more details won’t arrive for some time.

Next up for the Resident Evil franchise, Revelations 2 comes to PlayStation Vita later this month, while a Resident Evil Zero Remake is set to release in early 2016.
