As most of you heard by now, the team over at Capcom has started brainstorming some ideas for . The publisher and developer was hit hard by weak sales and bad reviews from its previous RE installments, pissing off its hardcore fan base with not-so-impressive gameplay elements and story arcs. So what is the gameplan? Going back to its roots: survival horror. Here is what head marketer of Capcom Michael Pattison had to say:
“With Resident Evil 6 specifically, 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 did Resident Evil Revelation on 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.”
Capcom is looking to please their fans, and hopefully with its refreshed approach to the series, the next Resident Evil will bring the series back from the dead. Here’s to wishing for the next RE4.
