The lights are on
Don't get too excited just yet. Capcom isn't remaking Resident Evil 2. But if enough people demand it then it could be made. Maybe.
"Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there's no rumor-mongering or things like that, no, we are not working on a Resident Evil 2 remake as of now," Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi told GameSpot in an interview.
"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."
It's odd that Capcom thinks such a project even needs fan support. Resident Evil is the company's most popular brand. A remake of Resident Evil 2 would be highly anticipated.
Capcom released a remake of the first Resident Evil for Game Cube back in 2002.
