Capcom took to Twitter to clear up a “mistranslation” in an investor report that mistakenly suggested its new Resident Evil 2 release would be a remaster rather than a full remake.
Capcom has clarified, saying Resident Evil 2 will be “a full from the ground up remake”:
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

The remake should be along the lines of the Gamecube remake of the original Resident Evil, recently re-released on current-gen. We reviewed the Resident Evil remake here.
