The official statement released by Capcom on their site, reads as follows:

"Over the past weekend, we were notified that an unfortunate case of sexual harassment occurred at Combo Breaker 2016, a Capcom Pro Tour Ranking Event, where a female attendee received unwarranted and unwanted contact from a male attendee, who is confirmed to be Noel Brown. This incident was also captured on camera during the live stream before the Street Fighter V Losers Finals match."

People are reacting to the ruling with a mix of outrage, approval, and suspicion:

From The Secret Success of Resident Evil:

The longevity of the "Resident Evil" title also comes with problems. The main user group is now in their late-30s to 40s, and the average age is also going up as the series goes on with an increasing possibility that some percentage of the existing users will outgrow games altogether. Therefore, there is a constant need to gain new users, and the creation of opportunities for exposure in fashion magazines was carried out as an example. However, obviously game information is not carried by fashion magazines.

Therefore, we have created opportunities for receiving coverage in fashion magazines by collaborating with fashion brands which are popular among young people. We are also actively working on spreading name recognition among non-gamers through expansion in other industries, including the "Halloween Horror Night" event in alliance with Universal Studios Japan (USJ) and the opening of the "Resident Evil Café and Grill S.T.A.R.S." (a "Resident Evil"-themed restaurant) in Shibuya PARCO, Tokyo. These collaborative events are opportunities to be enjoyed by non-gamers as well, so it is important to plan them so that anyone can enjoy them and not aim them at a section of our core gamers.

After ruminating on the idea, and the enormous fan reaction, regarding a Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom declared the intention to develop the game with a YouTube video and a shirt reading "We Do It" Aug. 12.

Capcom's Producer for the title, Yoshiaki Hirabyashi a.k.a. H, from R&D Division 1, commented: "It's been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved. The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans' passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want."



It's only been about a month since Capcom reached out to fans, asking why they wanted a remake so badly. That conversation must have gone well with the announcement from 'H'.

It was only earlier this year that Capcom released an HD remaster for the original Resident Evil and it sold 1 million copies already.

With such lukewarm receptions for the past two numbered games in the series, it looks like Capcom is just going back to the well for fresh inspiration. Let's just hope they don't run it dry.
