RESIDENT EVIL 2 Remake in the Pipeline?
It is fondly remembered as one of Capcom’s crowning achievements, at least in the Resident Evil series, and now it looks like the developer may be considering creating a remake of Resident Evil 2 for newer consoles.
The rumours got started when Capcom’s R&D Division quizzed fans of the Resident Evil Facebook page about whether they would be interested in a revamped version of the second game in the series. The response could be best described as ‘positive’, which will hopefully put the wheels in motion for work to begin.
Anybody who played the Resident Evil 1 remake on the Gamecube will know just how awesome this could turn out to be, and it appears that Capcom recently experienced quite a bit of success with the HD re-release of that game a few months back. However, doing the same for Resi 2 would essentially require building the game from scratch again, as Capcom don’t have a pre-existing remake to work from.
