The 'Resident Evil 2' remake team was nervous about the big reveal at E3.
Capcom has confirmed it will be revamping the classic horror game, and while the reaction has been largely positive, there were still reservations about what the fans would actually want.
The company's Europe COO Stuart Turner told GamesIndustry.biz: "We had discussions of whether we could make a game that was everything for everyone.
"For those guys who want tank controls and want fixed cameras... can we do that? But the world has moved on and these players have changed.
"And if we did [introduce old school mechanics], these fans might play it and actually decide it's not what they wanted after all."
Meanwhile, EMEA's marketing director Antoine Molant explained that questions over what fans wanted were pondered over even as they were ready to make the announcement.
Molant said: "That was probably the main worry, or question mark, that we had. We knew there were expectations around the game, and we knew it looked great and would be a good game.
"But around the point of the tank controls and fixed cameras, we were worried that the fanbase would be divided. But, although there might have been some initial dissenting voices, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive."
