Enthusiasm for a Resident Evil 2 Remake is something we’ve been hearing from you over the years, and has drawn some recent attention in the media.
However, as the team owns the RE brand, we’re not certain how we feel about this approach, and would like to ask your honest and frank opinion about the “Resident Evil 2 Remake” and what the brand identity is supposed to be about?

Judging from the post, it appears that Capcom has finally acknowledged the demand of fans and are looking into ways to remake Resident Evil 2.

Resident Evil 2 is perhaps the most popular game in the series. It was the first one in the series to introduce different endings for each of the characters with different scenarios. It was directed by Hideki Kamiya who now works at Platinum Games.
Capcom is currently working on a Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster and they have released Resident Evil 1 Remake HD Remaster, which proved to be a major success selling more than 1 million copies on all platforms.
