Classic survival horror Resident Evil 2 is officially being remade, Capcom has announced.

While details on the project won't be revealed for some time, VideoGamer.com understands that the title will be a complete remake of the original game built for modern platforms.

The remake is being produced by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the producer behind this year's Resident Evil HD Remake.

"We're pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development," a Capcom representative said in a statement provided to VideoGamer.com today.

"As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don't have any additional information or assets to share at this time. However, for now we want our fans to know that we appreciate all the feedback and support we've received on this title. We're looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for."

Formats for the game have yet to be announced, but fans should probably expect it to hit PS4, Xbox One and PC. A release date has not been confirmed.

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

FUCK YES!

EDIT: If it's not as good as RE:Make then fuck off. I don't want just upressed PS1 art with new 3D models. If you cba to remake the backgrounds then don't even bother.

FF7 remake, Shenmue 3 and now REmake 2. Never thought I'd see all of this in a single year. This year has truly been great for gaming.

awesome. i, for one, hope they make even more changes and additions than the first REmake did. going back and playing RE2 now feels somewhat stale because of how many ideas and concepts it recycles from RE1

complete remake of the original game built for modern platforms

So I guess it simply won't be a HD remaster of RE2 Remake and instead will be a full-on remake? Just hope Capcom doesn't botch the game too much if that's the case.

Great!
I wonder if they're going with new pre-rendered backgrounds of full 3D.
Of course they won't be foolish to turn it into a third person shooter.....right? :D

"Approved for development"

I'll come back in about 6 months or so when the first screenshots come out to determine hype levels

Kind of a... err.... dull announcement.
Would have been a fun conference bomb. :/


Fuck it- YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Been waiting for a RE2make for a long time!

Finally, i can't wait to see how it looks. Hopefully it stays true to original as much as possible, but with tons of new extras
