Capcom Wants Your Thoughts on the Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake

Share your "honest and frank" feedback about a HD remake of the 1998 survival-horror game.


The fan-made Resident Evil remake has apparently caught Capcom's eye.

A Facebook message from the publisher's Research & Development Division acknowledges the nice-looking and long-in-development remake and asks fans for their "honest and frank" opinions about it.

"As the team owns the Resident Evil brand, we're not certain how we feel about this approach, and would like to ask your honest and frank opinion about the 'Resident Evil 2 Remake' and what the brand identity is supposed to be about?" Capcom said.

The post was published earlier today and has already drawn more than 6,500 responses.

Capcom's intent with this message was not explicitly stated. It would appear, however, that Capcom might be at least thinking about making a Resident Evil 2 HD remake of its own someday.

"Enthusiasm for a Resident Evil 2 Remake is something we've been hearing from you over the years, and has drawn some recent attention in the media," Capcom said.

Back in 2012, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said the 1998 survival-horror game could get a remake if fans demanded it. And in May 2015, after it was revealed that the latest Resident Evil HD remake had sold more than 1 million copies, Capcom said it was planning even more HD remasters.
