Resident Evil 2 Reborn Recalled
First the bad news, Capcom has indeed (albeit politely) put a stop to the 3rd person fangame, Resident Evil 2 Reborn. This Unreal Engine 4 project sprung to life a little earlier in a year by fans of the franchise, developer InvaderGames. And it was only less than a month ago that they’ve released some footage of their project to the masses.
The good news that has come from this is that those fans were personally invited to meet Capcom in order to discuss further ideas and receive input. One’s mileage might vary on how that interesting development weighs in the face of ending literal development on the fan project but InvaderGames themselves seem very optimistic.
“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. We promise that the work done until now will be useful for future projects, we won’t disappoint your and our expectations.”
We probably won’t be hearing about the results of this interaction for months to come, but for now, one can still look at what was (at one point) the only thing related to Resident Evil 2 being made in the year 2015.
