A Resident Evil 2 HD remaster and/or remake has been in the works off-and-on for a while now, having first been announced in August 2015 before going dark for a couple of years.
If you happen to be in attendance at E3 this year, you can play a short demo of Resident Evil 2 at Capcom's booth in the South Hall. Just don't worry about the lack of Claire Redfield so far; Capcom has confirmed she is still there with her own playable campaign, searching for brother Chris. "T$3 he characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect", it said.
Zombies now react in real time as they take instant visible damage, making every bullet from the player count. On the PlayStation Blog, Capcom used the Raccoon City Police Department as an example and said that there will be all new areas to explore. Players will feel they're in the shoes of heroes Leon and Claire, terrified to step out of the light for fear of what flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness. It's good to see CAPCOM trying to make a game where buildings are up to code. However, it's possible that the system has been tweaked in some way to accommodate for improvements or even just the highly cinematic nature of the original Resident Evil 2 camera system.
There was very little pure gameplay footage but it did confirm that the remake uses an over-the-shoulder camera view similar to Resident Evil 4 (and 5 and 6) and not the first person view from the more recent Resident Evil 7.

As we've discovered yesterday, Resident Evil 2 Remake is on its way to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on January 25, 2019 for $59.99.
