If you want it, you better ask for it. Don't be shy!
It's a definite classic in the annals of video game history, and many fans have hoped for a remake of some kind. Resident Evil 2 in high-definition would be a dream come true for hardcore survival/horror purists.
And in speaking to GameSpot , Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said that while a remake isn't currently in the works, it is a possibility…if the fans make their wishes known. Said Hirabayashi:
"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. 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 there you have it. Get up petitions, send emails to Capcom, put up topics in forums and on discussion boards all over the Internet. Maybe if you're loud enough and Capcom is convinced that such an endeavor would yield a profit, this could happen. Remember, Capcom isn't Square-Enix, which has listened to literally millions ask for a Final Fantasy VII remake for a decade and then turn around and gives us whatever Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is supposed to be.
Even if you're bitter over what Resident Evil 6 has become, Capcom might still respond to the die-hard RE fans who want RE2 redone…
