In a gaming landscape where remasters of popular games are becoming a dime a dozen, Capcom’s latest investor report seemed set to disappoint fans when it referred to the recently green-lit Resident Evil 2 project as a “remaster.”
Capcom UK’s marketing director Stuart Turner quickly took to Twitter to alleviate anyone’s doubts, stating that it was a translation error and that the new 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

Other than the confirmation of it’s ‘remake’ status and the fact it’s production will be spearheaded by Hiroyuki Kobayashi (RE 1/2 and Dino Crisis), we know literally nothing else about the project…except for my raging excitement, that is!
