Capcom's Resident Evil 2 Remake Coming "Soon"

But how soon is that?

In 2015, Capcom surprised announced a Resident Evil 2 remake via a T-shirt. Since then, there hasn't been much chatter about the remake other than a few tacit statements that it was incoming. Now, according to a new interview with Resident Evil producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Resident Evil 2 is still incoming, and possibly sooner than one might think.

Speaking to Collider about another CGI Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Vendetta, Kobayashi also snuck in some talk about the Resident Evil 2 remake. "The only thing I can tell you is about something that's already out in the public," said Kobayashi, "Resident Evil 2, a remade version of the game, will be out from Capcom soon."

"Soon" obviously isn't a concrete release date but, given that the word choice is deliberate, then hopefully we could be seeing something about Resident Evil 2... well, soon I guess.

It's been almost 20 years since Resident Evil 2 first came out on the Playstation in 1998. Capcom already released a remake of the first Resident Evil game on the GameCube in 2000, with an HD re-release in 2015. Resident Evil 2 was discussed for a remake as far back as 2012, before getting the greenlight in 2015. Along the way a prominent fan remake of Resident Evil 2 was cancelled, presumably related to Capcom's official remake moving forward.

The last Resident Evil game from Capcom was Resident Evil 7 earlier this year. Resident Evil 7 diverged from the formula by introducing a first-person perspective for the first time in franchise history.

So yeah, we'll be seeing more Resident Evil 2 "soon". Let's just hope it's soon enough.
