In a video published on YouTube today, Capcom's Yoshiaki Hirabayashi confirmed plans to develop an HD remake of the company's 1998 PlayStation survival horror game Resident Evil 2.

Hirayabashi noted the project was greenlit due to "passion and support" from fans, but it's also right in line with Capcom's stated plan to avert its ongoing revenue slump by doubling down on HD remakes.

"HD remasters of our catalogue hit titles will be one of our key business activities," a Capcom spokesperson told investors earlier this year. "For example, overseas download sales of 'Resident Evil' (HD Remastered) in the past fiscal year were far higher than we expected."

And to make the point abundantly clear, Hirabayashi ended his brief video by encouraging viewers to also look forward to Capcom's HD remake of its 2002 release Resident Evil 0, which is slated to release across current and last-gen consoles early next year.
