Good news to all Resident Evil 2 fans! In an interview with Gamespot, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi (小林 裕幸) has given fans a chance to get a remake of the game. “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.” Hirabayashi said. “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 into consideration.” Want proof?
