Capcom Will 'Consider' Resident Evil 2 Remake If Fans Want It

Resident Evil 6 may only be a few days from release, but Capcom is open to the possibility of remaking Resident Evil 2 for current-gen consoles.

"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. "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."

So no pressure then, franchise fans. Would you be interested in a Resi 2 remake?

''if fans want it'' well... Resident Evil Producer Masachik Kawata '’Survival horror not popular enough for resident evil.’’ and to me i highly doubt theyd go for the puzzle solving, slow zombies, survival horror aspect of it. Therefore it wont be for the fans will it? -.- (just what i think, considering capcom)

If it would be like th RE remake on the Gamecube, they can just take my money now. If they make it like RE 4-6, I will lose all faith in Capcom and only buy their games used so as not to support them. Except maybe the sequel to Dragon's Dogma. Oh and if they ever make a new Onimusha and don't ruin it...and maybe the next Lost Planet game if it turns out ok...

Damn you Capcom, I love you but I hate you at the same time. Just don't ruin any more games please.

No thanks, so you can ruin a classic. Resi 1-3 were amazing, Resi 4 & 5 are a disgrace ( I'm not going to knock Resi 6 Before I fully try it)

Resi 4 was disgrace? I must have played a different game to you then. While I don't consider it to be a 'true' Resi game in that it was a complete deviation in formula, it was however excellent. 5 was a good enough game in its own right but shouldn't have been labelled 5. It should have been an offshoot or different IP. I don't understand why developers feel the need to wipe their asses with an established IP just for innovations sake.

Back on topic the GC remake of Resi 1 was incredible. They even resisted the urge that most remakes seem to have suffered of making the game easier...

Agreed, I loved Resi 4 as well, but I would not want to see Resi 2 remade in that style. RE remake on the Gamecube is the best Resi game in my opinion, even better than 2. If they did do 2 in that style though (incredibly unlikely I know), I would lose my mind...in a good way.
