Capcom Considers "Resident Evil 2" Remake with Enough Fan Support

Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says the door is open for possibility

Resident Evil 2 is one of the most celebrated entries in Capcom's long-running horror franchise, and Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says the door is open for the possibility of a remake if enough fans go wild for the idea. 


In a video question-and-answer session with GameSpot, Hirabayashi was quick to make it clear that Capcom is not currently working on a remake of Resident Evil 2, so let's get that notion out of the way first. "Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there's no rumor-mongering or things like that," he said, "no, we are not working on a Resident Evil 2 remake as of now." 


Hirabayashi continued, "But 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." 


The Q&A is worth watching, as it also sheds some more light on Resident Evil 6. According to Hirabayashi, development on the PC version has just kicked off, and we can expect more news on that in the near future. 


What do you think about the possibility of a Resident Evil 2 remake? If Capcom did it along the lines of the Resident Evil GameCube remake, it could be excellent. I guess it's time to start clamoring!
