“We’re pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development, 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 for this title. We’re looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for.”

The game will be developed by Division 1 of Capcom research and development. Hirabyashi says he and his team will continue to post updates of development, to keep fans abreast of developments, but be long until they have a launch announcement.
