Back in the August, Capcom officially announced that a remake of Resident Evil 2 was in development. Despite this announcement, there was some speculation that the game was actually an HD port after Capcom mentioned the game in its financial report as "remastered version of Resident Evil 2".
Capcom is aware of this situation, with the publisher's UK's senior marketing director Stuart Turner now clarifying that this was just a "mistranslation". "Seems to be a few people picking up a mistranslation in our own investor report. RE2 will be a full from the ground up remake NOT a remaster," said Turner.
Capcom has yet to reveal on which platforms the game will be released, although, we assume that it will at least release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
