Capcom Discusses The Future Of Resident Evil, Next Entry Will Return To Horror-Heavy Roots

Posted on Thursday, August 15 @ 11:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


Capcom has shed light on how it plans to move forward with theResident Evilfranchise. The company has confirmed that the next entry is in the works and it will go back to the series' horror-filled roots.

Capcom marketing boss Michael Pattison spoke to MCV on the matter, explaining how the reception toResident Evil 6is influencing how the studio handlesRE7.
We have obviously seen the consumer response and the PR response. There was some great positives out of that, but it was a mixed bag, as we saw from the review scores. We have got to take that on-board, we can't ignore that, and we have to take that onto the next game when we make the next Resident Evil.

WithResident Evil 6specifically, we probably put too much content in there, there were comments from consumers that said it felt bloated. The Leon missions went down very well, and because we didResident Evil Revelationson 3DS, there was a cry out for us to focus our attention on survival horror, rather than be too many things to all people. You’ll find where we go next will likely be more targeted at our core fanbase.

A lot is said about the saturation of this zombie, post-apocalyptic survival horror. But it is still alive and well. The Last of Us shows a good direction of what the consumers want. Tomb Raideras well, we spoke to R&D and they looked at that and they enjoyed that experience. I think that proves there is still a strong market for that sort of content.


Do you hope to see Capcom return to the franchise's horror-filled roots? Can they win back gamers' trust after the action-heavy mess that was RE6? Sound off in the comments below and let us know.
