Capcom's 'Resident Evil 2' remake is definitely going ahead - though several voice actors might not be reprising their roles.
After the disappointing news that Claire Redfield will not be returning to portray Alyson Court for the second instalment and Matt Mercer as Leon Kennedy, the Daily Star reports that this was back in October last year when the year-long SAG-AFTRA union strike was in place.
A deal was made by members and many went back to work on their respective games, which could be good news for the PS4 game.
It comes after the game's producer said he's hoping the remake can "recapture the spirit" of the original.
Last year, Yoshiaki Hirabayashi revealed the Capcom team had been "working hard" on the upcoming title, a re-mastered version of the January 1998 game originally released for PlayStation, and was confident it will be a success.
He said: "[The Capcom team are]working hard on the game at the moment and there are some reasons why I think we can recapture the spirit of the first game."
Yoshiaki was a part of the Capcom team that remade 'Resident Evil 2' for the Gamecube in 2002, and he believes the success of that release shows just how well a re-mastered version of an old title can work well and "recapture the original game".
He added: "The first game's remake is held up as proof that a re-master can recapture the original game, and as it so happens, the RE GameCube remake was my first project at Capcom.
"I was able to learn from more experienced colleagues and see with my own eyes how they translated their efforts into such a masterpiece that built on an already well-received game. It was an incredibly valuable experience for me."
The game is expected to be released next year.
