Resident Evil 2 holds a fond place in many horror fans’ hearts, and is well overdue for an HD brush up. Capcom isn’t exactly against the idea, either.
Capcom’s Yoshiaki Hirabayashi told Gamespot that a Resident Evil 2 remake is indeed a possibility.
“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,” he said.
Don’t take that as any sort of confirmation, as he prefaced it with a flat-out denial.
“Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there’s no rumour-mongering or things like that, no, we are not working on a Resident Evil 2 remake as of now.”
Resident Evil 6 revisits the urban US setting familiar to series fans, suggesting Capcom knows how much we miss Resident Evil 2’s mean streets. It’s due in November on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a PC version to follow.
