No Resident Evil 2 Remake In the Works, Possible with Fan Support

1998 survival horror game Resident Evil 2 may be remade by Capcom one day, if there’s enough demand for it. Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi debunked rumors that the studio is currently working on a remake, but left the door open for future possibilities.

Speaking to GameSpot, Hirabayashi said:

“Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there’s no rumor-mongering or things like that, no, we are not working on a Resident Evil 2 remake as of now. But if the fans really clamor for it; if there’s a groundswell of support for remaking that game, then I think that’s something Capcom would take under consideration.”

You heard him, folks. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Start squeaking.

Here’s the official thread on Capcom’s forum where fans should show their support as Capcom reps will see it:

This is what they should have done after the Gamecube remake as well as Resident Evil Zero. Keep the classic clunkly gameplay style, but update the GFX.

I prefer to see the series going forward with Resident Evil 7 and 8 than having a REmake to old games.

The Resident Evil Gamecube remake was a fantastic game. I still don’t understand why they haven’t given Resident Evil 2 and 3 the same treatment. I would have bought both of them in a heartbeat.

If this actually happened, I wonder which approach they would take. REmake kept the same basic design of the old titles, it just looked a lot better. But the OTS gameplay of the games since RE4 have generated higher sales, so I wonder if they’d use that style instead.
