Capcom asks fans if they want a Resident Evil 2 remake

capcom asks fans resident evil 2 remake residentevilremaster2
Capcom has certainly been busy with “definitive editions” and remakes this past year. Devil May Cry alone has already received two in the course of just a few months, the excellent original Resident Evil remake released back in January, and a Resident Evil Zero remake is on its way. But it appears the publisher isn’t done yet, as a recent Facebook post suggests Resident Evil 2 could very well be next on its list.

“Enthusiasm for a Resident Evil 2 Remake is something we’ve been hearing from you over the years, and has drawn some recent attention in the media,” say members of Capcom’s R&D Division 1 on the official Resident Evil Facebook page.

This “recent attention in the media” refers to a fan-made remake of Resident Evil 2 in development at InvaderGames. This new version is being developed using Unreal Engine 4, and looks to combine “the old soul of the original” with more modern game mechanics including an over-the-shoulder camera angle more reminiscent of contemporary Resident Evil games.

“However, as the team owns the RE brand, we’re not certain how we feel about this approach, and would like to ask your honest and frank opinion about the ‘Resident Evil 2 Remake’ and what the brand identity is supposed to be about?” Capcom continues.

Although this post suggests that Capcom may be willing to give the fan-made game its blessing, a more recent update states that the team has been tasked with making “a worth seeing game to answer these fans full of passion.” This would likely put a bullet in InvaderGames’ project, although the developers stress that Resident Evil 2 Reborn will only be released as “a free mod for demonstration purposes only.” Could Capcom bring them on board to make an official Resident Evil 2 remake a reality? Anything is possible!
