Capcom wants you to know that while they appreciate all the enthusiasm they’ve seen over the years for a Resident Evil 2 remake, they genuinely don’t know what they think about it. In an effort to try and figure that out, they’ve turned to their millions-strong Facebook following in a post asking fans to give them some (easy) answers.
Hello Resident Evil fans!
This is Capcom R&D Division 1!
First off, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to all Resident Evil fans, for your passion, enthusiasm and continued support for the Resident Evil brand.
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?
Unsurprisingly, the Resident Evil-loving community was quick to tell them exactly what they want, inundating the page with thousands of replies that, for the most part, say roughly the same thing: that it be a full remake — not a remaster, like Resident Evil 0 HD — like the 2002 GameCube remake of the original Resident Evil.
Many fans have also taken the opportunity to ask that Capcom reclaim the “soul” of the original games by not focusing so heavily on action over horror and atmosphere, and specifically to not make another game like Resident Evil 6.
In a response published earlier today by the same R&D Division, you can tell the person behind the post is intensely excited about the response they’ve seen so far.
I was told by my boss to check out the post by “R&D Division 1″ on the Resident Evil Facebook page, and THIS IS AMAZING….
Thank you so much for your passion and continued support for Resident Evil brand!
He was also telling me…“can YOU make a worth seeing game to answer these fans full of passion???”
This order actually makes me SUPER excited…!!!
I’m very interested in seeing where this leads. Stay tuned!
