Capcom took to the official Resident Evil Facebook page to ask fans their opinion on the Unreal Engine 4 fan project, Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Here’s what was posted by the firm’s R&D Division 1:

“We would like to express our deepest appreciation to all Resident Evil fans, for your passion, enthusiasm and continued support for the Resident Evil brand. 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.

“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?”

Obviously, fans came out in droves to offer opinions on what they would like to see in an RE2 remake, whether it be a complete revamp or an HD re-release such as Resident Evil HD Remaster.

A few hours and 9,444 comments, 2,435 shares and 6,471 likes later, “H” from the company’s R&D Division responded to the fan feedback.

“I was told by my boss to check out the post by “R&D Division 1″ on the Resident Evil Facebook page, and THIS IS AMAZING,” the post reads.

“Thank you so much for your passion and continued support for Resident Evil brand. He was also telling me…“can YOU make a worth seeing game to answer these fans full of passion???”

“This order actually makes me SUPER excited…!!!”

So, does this mean a Resident Evil 2 revamp or HD upgrade is now going to be in works? Who knows. We sure as hell hope so.
