The classic title from the PlayStation 1 will be remade possibly for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but the platforms are not yet confirmed. In fact all we have right now is the studio confirming the project is in the works and that’s about it. It seems to be too early to give more details just yet.
A rep from Cacpom told Videogamer:
“We’re pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development,” a Capcom representative said. “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.
The remake is being lead by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the same producer behind the Resident Evil HD.
For those that don’t remember the 1998 classic, the game takes place following Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield attempting to escape Raccoon City. The game has the two characters intertwine throughout the story which made it a fan favorite. The bigger maps and story lead the game to be one of the best in the series.
The title was a pinnacle game for Shinji Mikami and Hideki Kamiya, but so far Capcom has not mentioned if either one will take part in this project.
More to come, so stick around Cinelinx and let us know what you think!
