Capcom is working on a remake for the video game classic Resident Evil 2, which was originally launched on the PlayStation One in 1998. However, the publisher is promising that the update will be made from the ground up, and it won't be a simple high resolution "remaster" of the game.
The remake was announced in August but has since been detailed in Capcom's October 2015 financial report.
Capcom UK's senior marketing director Stuart Turner clarified in a tweet:
Seems to be a few people picking up a mistranslation in our own investor report. RE2 will be a full from the ground up remake NOT a remaster— Stuart Turner (@OnlyOneT) December 3, 2015
Resident Evil 2 actually saw two releases on the PC back in 1999 and 2006, but those were basically ports of the PS One and GameCube versions of the game. No platforms have been announced for the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake, nor is there a release date either, but we should expect it to be released for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2016 or 2017.
