Capcom has announced that it is officially remaking survival horror classic Resident Evil 2.
VideoGamer.com reports that details won't be revealed for sometime, but it is believed to be a complete remake of the original title for modern systems.
Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the producer behind this year's Resident Evil HD Remake, is leading development on the project.
"We're pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development," a Capcom spokesperson commented in a statement.
"As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don't have any additional information or assets to share at this time. However, for now we want our fans to know that we appreciate all the feedback and support we've received on this title. We're looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for."
"It's been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved," Hirabayashi added. "The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans' passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want."
Formats for the game have yet to be confirmed, but it's likely to be in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Resident Evil 2 was originally released on PS1 in 1998 before being ported to PC, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, and GameCube.
