Capcom puts kibosh on fan remake—and will do the job itself


Having confirmed their own plans to publish an updated version of classic survival horror game Resident Evil 2, Capcom's asked a fan-led effort (nicely) to put theirs to bed.


Contrary to what might be thought, this is wonderful news for us and, as fans, we're so happy that Capcom has decided to take the lead of the project and to develop the remake awaited for years by everybody (nobody could bring back to life the masterpiece of 1998 better than the creators themselves). Meanwhile as developers, we're honoured to announce that we've been officially invited to meet Capcom.

Capcom called us up in advance of the announcement and asked us if we would mind stopping the project as they had longer term plans for a Resident Evil 2 Remake. They have invited us to a meeting to discuss further ideas.
