New "Resident Evil 2" remake updates will feature the original voice-actors not returning and Capcom will address the development of the game.

It seems that more bad news has come up on "Resident Evil 2" remake as the voice-actors of Leon S. Kennedy and Ada Wong will not be returning to the game due to Capcom hiring non-union voice-actors for the game.

Claire Redfield voice-actor Alyson Court was the first to be informed by Capcom and posted a video message to the gaming fans, stating that she was not upset with the move, but she takes issue with being replaced in "Resident Evil 2" remake because she is union, and feels as though the Japanese publisher "disrespected" the will of the fans.

Shortly after, voice-actors Matthew Mercer and Courtenay Taylor are also being replaced by Capcom in the "Resident Evil 2" remake, Mercer tweeted the possible same experience that Court had felt when the being replaced. While Mercer is not the original voice of Leon Kennedy from "Resident Evil 2," he has become a mainstay as the character since 2012 by taking on the role in "Resident Evil: Revelations 2," "Resident Evil 6," and the CG movies "Resident Evil: Damnation" and "Resident Evil: Vendetta."

With Mercer not being brought back for the remake, though, there is a chance that the other actors who have played Leon in the past could make a return, with the very first voice, Paul Haddad, potentially being in the cards, or "Resident Evil 4‘s" Paul Mercier being a possibility as well.

As for Ada Wong, Taylor told Gamerant that she will not return voice Ada in the "Resident Evil 2" remake and stating that Capcom was "strict" in hiring non-union voice-actors for the game.

With this in mind, how will gaming fans react now that all three popular voice-actors for Clair, Leon and Ada are not returning to the remake?

Despite the fact that Capcom are using new voices behind Claire, Leon and Ada, the Japanese developers assured gaming fans that "Resident Evil 2" remake is on the game and programmer Hiroyuki Kobayashi told Collider that the game will be releasing "soon."

For now, gaming fans will have to wait for further updates regarding "Resident Evil 2" remake development soon.
