If you're a big fan of Resident Evil: Outbreak, here’s some rather awesome news for you.

Thanks to very loyal Resident Evil fans (and they are very, very loyal), Outbreak will finally return!

When Capcom’s Resident Evil: Outbreak 1 and 2 both came out on the PS2 way back in 2004, they garnered a fierce and loyal online following. A couple of years back, Capcom closed the servers, and since then, fans have been clamoring for a revival of the series ... but Capcom has, as yet, remained quite deaf to their pleas.

Now, here’s the good-news bit: Outbreak IS back, but with one small caveat, and it's that it's back as a fan project.

Outbreak Server Recreation Project is a fan-made revival of Resident Evil: Outbreak made to be played both with Japanese versions of the games as well as with emulators. Wanna know how to join? Then go and click HERE.

One good thing that could come out of this impressive fan endeavor is that it just may finally convince Capcom to start development for a third Resident Evil: Outbreak game.

Let’s cross our fingers now, shall we? Do you guys think this could spur Capcom to revive the Resident Evil: Outbreak series?
