Capcom has officially announced that a remake of Resident Evil 2 is currently in development. Although Capcom couldn't reveal any details, due to the development still being in its early stages, it was revealed that the game will be produced by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi.
"We're pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development," a Capcom representative said in a statement sent to Videogamer. "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."
Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi couldn't hide his excitement for this remake, and has thanked the fans for all the passion and support toward the game. "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!" said Hirabyashi. "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."
Despite the announcement, Capcom didn't reveal on which platforms the game will be released, although, we assume that it will at least release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
