Speaking with the official PlayStation Blog, the producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi revealed that Capcom has thought of remaking Resident Evil 2 several times before announcing that the game is officially in development in 2015.

That’s what Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said :

” We’ve spoken about this a lot since the game was announced, but we’ve always had many fans telling us they want us to remake Resident Evil 2, We considered it several times over the years, but it’s a tough proposition to make a great remake out of this classic game. ”

Eventually Resident Evil 2 Remake was released a year ago and it was a huge success for both the players and critics, It was also nominated to Game of The Year 2019.

Now we are patiently waiting for Resident Evil 3 Remake which will be released on April 3rd, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
