Twist Capcom’s Arm Hard Enough and We Might See Resident Evil 2 Remade

Arguably the most coveted title in the series next to the genre shifting Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 2 is still on fans’ minds fourteen years after it took a ragged bite out of the gaming scene.

In a recent Q&A with RE6’s Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the producer admitted that no remake was currently in gestation (“Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there’s no rumor-mongering or things like that.”), but he was quick to note that enough interest in such a project would probably be taken very seriously by his bosses at Capcom.

“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,” says Hirabayashi, who’s no stranger to retooling horror classics, having overseen motion capture work for 2002’s critically acclaimed Gamecube remake of the original Resident Evil.
