Capcom has officially announced a remake of Resident Evil 2 by releasing a video of the announcement in which you can see above this post.
The remake is being produced by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the producer behind this year’s Resident Evil HD Remake.
“You’ve been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade, and we haven’t been able to make it happen…until now!” Hirabayashi said in the video. “We at R&D Division 1 will do our best to take on your feedback and deliver the gameplay experience you’ve been waiting for.”

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.
