A recent comment from Masachika Kawata of Capcom has revealed that the next entry in the Resident Evil series may be another complete revamp. This is what Masachika had to say on Resident Evil 6;
“The series will see a complete renovation with the next entry on every level. But we can’t forget about all the previous entries that have led to the creation of many possibilities for the franchise. I can’t say if we’re going to make it (Resident Evil 6) survival horror or a shooter, but I can say that it’ll be totally different.”
I say we can take this as confirmation that Resident Evil 6 is going to be something we’ve never seen from the series. With Operation Racoon City bringing about a change to the series too, it seems Capcom are becoming quite experimental with the franchise. E3 is just around the corner so who knows? Maybe they’ll shed some light on this then.
