Resident Evil 2 Web Page Gets Cryptic – Remake News Incoming?

resident evil 2 remake news

Resident Evil 2 Remake speculation has been ramping up in recent weeks. Most of that, understandably, is down to the proximity of the original Resident Evil 2’s 20th anniversary.

Yet the evidence pointing towards some kind of tie-in announcement or reveal for the remake has grown significantly. Now we can add the existence of a Resident Evil 2 web page, confirmed to be owned by Capcom, that was updated earlier this week with a white space and a single word. OK.

The page was updated four days ago, presumably to add the single word. OK is likely in reference to the initial announcement of Resident Evil 2 Remake by Capcom's Producer for the title, Yoshiaki Hirabyashi a.k.a. H, from R&D Division 1 (could just be a word of course).

The page updating is nothing major in itself. When grouped together with the growing pile of evidence however, it does seem increasingly likely Resident Evil 2 Remake is having a reveal of some kind. And likely sooner rather than later. The anniversary being this Sunday only adds to the likelihood.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Evidence So Far

The Japanese Resident Evil Twitter updated its header to leave a deliberate blank space.

The Capcom Resident Evil logos changed to a typeface from Resident Evil 2 across its media.

The team working on the remake landed in the US and posted a picture of their hotel room, with the infamous Resi 7 dummy finger on a windowsill.

All of this has occurred in a very short space of time, which ties it together nicely.

It’s been almost two and a half years since the first confirmation that Capcom were making Resident Evil 2 Remake.

At the time, Hirabyashi stressed it would be some time before we would see anything new on the game’s development. So it’s fair to say we’re about due for at least a taste of that reurn to Raccoon City now.

    My heart can’t take this anymore, but at the same time I’m super proud of Capcom for being able to keep everything hidden in this WORLD OF SPOILERS that we live in. When it comes to videogames/movies, The less we know, the better. They did an amazing job with RE7 advertising without showing us too much so the game felt new in the sense that we didn’t know much of the story or its jump scares and stuff, that’s the way it should be. Anyway, i can’t wait to play RE2 remake!!! 😎

      Hoping I can get as excited about this as you apparently are. lol

      Was not a fan of RE 7 as a Resi game. So long as they gave RE 2 remake the same treatment and care they gave RE remake on Gamecube? I will be as excited as you are.

      In short, I hope they maybe expanded on it a little like REmake, but I hope they didn’t “modernize” it (a.k.a. ruin it).

      Finger crossed in the meantime.

        I agree. It would be amazing if they did a great Resident Evil REmake job of this new game, although it was Shinji Mikami that helped with that game on Gamecube so of course it was amazing. No involvement from him in a RE2 REmake instantly adds huge skepticism already.

        I hope they also do that thing they did in the first game where they add new areas into the map that make sense if it connects to one of the other doors too. Oh and perfect tank controls too. None of that crappy analogue stick and fixed camera angles resulting in a janky character wobbling all over the place when you have to adjust the sticks after a camera angle change.
