Good news and bad news for Resident Evil 2 fans: with Capcom’s official remake in the works, the fan-made Resident Evil 2 Reborn has been shelved.
Capcom contacted InvaderGames, the developer working on a remake of RE2 inside the Unreal Engine 4, ahead of their official announcement.
“Capcom called us up in advance of the announcement and asked us if we would mind stopping the project as they had longer term plans for a Resident Evil 2 Remake,” InvaderGames said on Facebook. “They have invited us to a meeting to discuss further ideas.”
“Even though we cannot complete the project of Resident Evil 2 Reborn, we’re happy that what we’ve shown has achieved consents from worldwide fans and especially has been noticed from Capcom itself.”
Capcom confimed the official Resident Evil 2 remake last week.
