Capcom R&D Division 1 just released a statement about an imminent “Resident Evil 2” Remake. When is the release date? Read on for more details.
Capcom R&D Division 1 Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, also known as “H,” revealed to “Resident Evil” fans that the “Resident Evil 2” Remake was already approved.
“You’ve been telling us for years that you want “Resident Evil 2” to be remade, and we haven’t been able to make it happen…until now! We at R&D Division 1 will do our best to take on your feedback and deliver the gameplay experience you’ve been waiting for,” Hirabayashi said.
Hirabayashi did not mention any release date for the said video game and on what platform it would be given. However, he assured diehard fans that they could anticipate on various exciting things in the future from the “Resident Evil” game franchise. Fans are going to receive the HD remaster of “Resident Evil 0.”
Hirabayashi also said that they will give fans update from time to time, but it might take a long time before another detail about “Resident Evil 2” Remake comes out.
“Resident Evil 2” Remake Not A Good Idea
Although this does sound good news to other “Resident Evil” fans, but for Forbes’ Ollie Barder it seemed not to be a good idea. He noted fans were only getting nothing these days but “remake after remake” and that he would rather have a complete new game.
Boarder also foresaw an industry-wide decline that could be sooner than later if game publishers, such as Capcom, would not invest in new properties, and with time publishers would, in the end, have to deal with reduced profits on rehashed or remade titles such as “Resident Evil 2″ Remake.
“Either this is down to lack of insight on what new titles to invest in or a general lack of expertise in general, management in publishers will need to grow a spine at some point as remaking the past is no way to secure gaming’s future,” Ollie Barder said.
