    Earlier today, Capcom finally announced the official remake of the old classic survival horror title, Resident Evil 2. Fans of the series have pushed for this to happen for a while, and in April, a fan took matters in his own hands and started working on a remake himself. His work gained a large following of fans and even caught Capcom's attention. A few months later, Capcom reached out on Facebook to ask for their fans' opinion on an official remake.

    The original Resident Evil 2 launched on PS1 back in 1998 and was later ported to PC, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and GameCube. It is understandable that a remake will take some time, and according to producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, we won't see any details any time soon. It is safe to assume that we will be getting a complete remake of the original game built for modern platforms, so Xbox One, PS4 and PC players can look forward to updates as the development progress.

    "It's been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved, the team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans' passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want."

    As expected, there was no mention of a release date, but to ease the wait fans can look forward to Resident Evil 0 HD, a high-definition remaster of 2002's GameCube horror, due to release on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in early 2016.

    Why not RE3 QWQ

    That's nice and all, but can Capcom give us a new Megaman already?

    2 was good, but I would really like to see number 3 remade with nemesis

    not the best title to remake in the series i have to say!!! resident evil 4 would have been the better choice IMO.

      Actually, there's a remaster of RE4 HD on Xbox 360 stores

      The HD versions for the PS3, xbox 360 and PC aren't really a remake. I don't think that a game should get a remake or a remaster before it's at least 15 years old. Remaking resident evil 4 would be like remaking half life 2.

      Resident evil 4 was released in 2005, remaking it is like remaking halo 2 or half life 2.

    They will soon have remade every game they had.

      HD versions of games aren't remakes. And even if they are, they still haven't remade, resident evil 0, 3, 4, 5, the the umbrella chronicles and the darkside chronicles plus 6, operation racoon city and revalations, but they are only a few years old.
    3. denz
      They have remade 4. Dont mention 5/racoon city considering they're relatively new and revelations is a remake of ds game,.

      Capcom is most unoriginal publisher in recent years imo.
    4. JoinTheResistance
      What? When did they remake 4? As I said, HD versions aren't remakes.
  8. WeeGee
    Seems like it has been in development for a while. Should look like a whole new game when its published. I would like to see gameplay before I buy it though.

    Not a big fan of any RE before 6 just because you can't shoot and walk >.> But yay for the people looking forward to it.

      Resident Evil HD Remaster is actually a remaster of the remake...and it's on Xbox One too...
    4. JoinTheResistance
      What General Asesino said. The original resident evil remake came out in 2002, the PS4 and xbox 1 versions are simply ports with upgraded graphics.
