Unofficial Resident Evil 2 HD Remake 'Reborn' In Development

Resident-Evil-2-HD-Remake-Reborn-AnnouncedIn 2002 Capcom took one of their most successful video game releases to date and re-sculpted it from the ground up. Despite this GameCube remake of Resident Evil being hugely popular, the re-releases of Resident Evil 2 and its successors sadly didn't receive the same HD treatment - at least until now, albeit unofficially.

As of recent Italian based indie game studio Invader Games have been posting to their Facebook fan page a collection of screenshots and videos of their newly announced Resident Evil 2 HD remake for the PC. While everything appears to be very much a work in progress, the project overall is showing great promise and appears to be exactly how we all imagined the GameCube remake could have looked all those years ago.

Although lacking any approval from Capcom whatsoever, the studio have announced that a playable demo of RE2 Reborn will be released this month. Until then, be sure to check out these technical demos of the Resident Evil 2 HD Remake on YouTube.

Why Capcom have never even attempted to do a remake of RE2 is beyond comprehension... There's a petition with 34,000 signatures online, there's obviously a market for the game. I hope the popularity of this fan remake finally sends the message home that Capcom need to make this.

True, but 34,000 wouldn't fund it, you'd need ten times that really.

I wonder when this will be shut down. There's got to be a point when capcom will do this i know they are struggling financially at the moment so this will surly bring them in some much needed cash just got to choose the best time to bring it out.

Lets just say that Capcom is not known for their best judgement/behaviour, which is probably the reason why every major internal japanese developer leaves Capcom to start their own studio.

I think 34,000 is a minute sample of the potential audience of a Capcom produced Resident Evil 2 Remake. It's a shame the original Remake on the Gamecube wasn't the success it was suppose to be...

They let Megaman die off. I don't see Capcom giving a care if they let resident Evil die off as well. It's funny how they can remember to remake games like Strider and Street Fighter 10 different ways but not the more well loved franchises. Who's running the show over there, woody woodpecker...?
