Capcom has officially announced a HD version of Resident Evil 2 is in development. According to VideoGamer, the iconic survival horror game will be a complete visual overhaul and offer improved controls. The remake will be directed by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, commonly known as “H”, who spearheaded Resident Evil HD. In a passionate video message, H 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. 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.”
“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.”
Resident Evil 2 is sometime off so it’s unknown which platforms it will arrive on. Presumably, it will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One but could also feature on the Nintendo NX. As a huge survival horror fan, Resident Evil 2 felt like a mesmerizing experience and signifies an era when the Resident Evil games were actually terrifying. Personally, I preferred it to the original and cannot wait to revisit it in a high-resolution.
