Resident Evil 2 Reborn team invited to help with the Resident Evil 2 remake

When news broke that Capcom would develop a Resident Evil 2  the world rejoiced - well, a lot of it, anyway. I imagine there were some people following the development of Resident Evil 2 Reborn (a fan-made game created in Unreal Engine 4) who were less than pleased, afraid of what would happen to the project. The bad news is that work on Resident Evil 2 Reborn has ceased. The good news is that the team was invited to meet with Capcom to give their ideas to the development of the official RE2 remake.

From a post on the group's Facebook page: "Contrary to what might be thought, this is wonderful news for us and, as fans, we're so happy That Capcom has DECIDED to take the lead of the project and to develop the remake awaited for years by everybody (nobody could bring back to life the masterpiece of 1998 better than the Creators Themselves). Meanwhile as developers, we're honored to announce That We've been officially invited to meet Capcom."

The team thanked fans for their support throughout Resident Evil 2 Reborn's short lifespan, and promised that the work done would go toward future projects. No good deed goes unpunished, but at least the team's efforts were acknowledged by Capcom and the exchange between the two groups sounds like it was amicable. Which is more than you could say for most people whose lives are touched by the Umbrella Corporation ...
