  • At launch Resident Evil 6 shipped 4.5 million copies to stores worldwide since October 2nd, 2012; the strongest initial shipment of any Capcom title ever! Although these are not sales numbers to customers, millions of store purchases give a strong indication that interest is high in the Resident Evil franchise.

    No doubt you can count on Capcom to make Resident Evil 7 if sales remain this high, they said as much in the quote at the top. Capcom itself expects Resident Evil 6 to sell a total of 7 million copies (compared to Resident Evil 5′s 5.8 million), making the latest sequel the company’s best-selling title yet. Capcom further announced that since the first Resident Evil game in 1996, the series has now sold over 50 million copies worldwide.

    Resident Evil Future

    Capcom chairman and CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto recently told investors that: “We want to reduce the time needed to develop major titles from the usual three-to-four years to only 2.5 years. Speeding up development will probably raise the cost. But creating quality content will be vital to Capcom’s ability to survive by overcoming intense global competition.”

    “Our goal is to reduce the cycle to 2.5 years for subsequent titles in this series.” -Capcom CEO

    The Capcom CEO added: “Our goal is to reduce the cycle to 2.5 years for subsequent titles in this series.”
    For reference: After Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6 was in development for 3.5 years. Hence Resident Evil 7 will likely launch in 2015.
    The DMC Devil May Cry and Lost Planet franchises are getting a similar treatment.

    Resident Evil 6

    Resident Evil 6 executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi this week talked about the difference between what Resident Evil fans want and how they envision the future of the series. To quote: “The way I always think of it is that if Resident Evil represents a child, then the fans and us as creators are the two parents. The resulting games are like the children that are born between both of us. And just like real parents, you’re not always going to agree on what is best for raising that child.”

    “It’s our job to create a new gaming experience and to offer them something that’s fresh and challenging. We want to make sure that what we do pleases them, but the initial reaction might not always be positive. We do listen to the fans, but we can’t be beholden to them at every turn or I don’t think we’ll ever make progress in terms of the series’ development.” So they do take fan feedback into account, but they want the series to appeal to a worldwide audience at the same time.

    Resident Evil 7 Team Options

    Resident Evil 7

    What will Resident Evil 7′s story be about? The biggest Resident Evil 7 hints can be found in the 4 different campaign endings, as well as the secret ending, from Resident Evil 6 shown in this video:

    Obvious Resident Evil 6 spoilers in the rest of this Resident Evil 7 section…

    “A job huh? Sure. My schedule just cleared up.” -Ada Wong

    While Ada successfully destroyed Carla Radames’s Neo-Umbrella lab in Langshiang, this will obviously not be the sinister organization’s only lab they have. In the Ada Wong Campaign ending she receives a call from someone with a mission. Ada takes it, saying “A job huh? Sure. My schedule just cleared up.” Hinting she’ll be back in Resident Evil 7! Who (from the BSAA or otherwise) do you think called her up? Leon Kennedy?

    Then as Ada’s Campaign ending cutscene finishes the Achievement/Trophy for completion pops up with an important question “What’s Next?” for the Resident Evil series. This then leads into the credits after which the game isn’t over yet…

    In a post-credits scene after Ada’s Campaign ends, the secret ending shows an underdeveloped country somewhere, with a small boy trapped in a house by B.O.W.’s. Jake asks if the boy has his price, to which the boy passes him an apple. In this open-ended Epilogue, Jake then goes outside and proceeds to defend the boy from the attacking B.O.W.’s. Hinting he’ll be back to save the world from zombies and other mutations in Resident Evil 7!

    Who do you want to see star in Resident Evil 7? As mentioned, our Resident Evil 6 teams likely? only took out Simmons, Ustanak and Tentacleman, but not Neo-Umbrella itself! Will Ada, Leon, Jake, Sherry, Chris, Jill, Helena, Claire and the rest return in new duo’s to stop and completely destroy Neo-Umbrella?

    I imagine there’ll be a lot of interest in the romantic pairings of partners like Leon & Ada and Chris & Jill. Although a heroine combo with Claire & Jill teaming up for a main campaign – like the cover image at the top shows – would be awesome too! With Albert Wesker dead, perhaps they’ll take on an immortal Alex Wesker who might be the mastermind behind new zombie-attack events, I mean, what else has he been up to all this time?

    January 2013 Update: Capcom’s Resident Evil producer, Masachika Kawata, has revealed Resident Evil 7 will go back to the series’ horror roots after fan feedback on Resident Evil 6 and Operation Raccoon City’s more action/shooter oriented direction.

    At a London event for Resident Evil: Revelations he said the following about the next Resident Evil game:
    “I think that it’s important for us to have users’ needs in mind when making the games. At the same time I think a lot of what people want now is to have Chris and Jill in a game, or they want it to look like Resident Evil used to look like. That’s what makes the game work for them. We should be able to start from scratch and reboot it. It would still be Resident Evil. We wouldn’t lose the essential nature of what makes it a good game just by changing the characters. [...] The most important thing with a Resident Evil game is to bring across that feeling of horror and fear that’s such a part of the series.”

      Jessica was basically one of the most favored characters in RE:R and one of the main villains. I always play as her in Raid Mode.

      How about this. Someone from high rank umbrella (Or something) kidnaps Jill, Barry, Chris, Leon, Claire, Sherry and if possible Ada. Put them all in a mansion. In separate rooms and test their ultimate BOWs on them. Bringing the scare factor back and back to the roots. Barry can also be the one who set it up. Just for old time sake, but that is optional. The reason they test it out on them only because they seem to be the ones destroying them and what way to get rid of them is to test out their biggest weapons on them and then setting them out in the world if they accomplish to kill them all.

      or Ada figures our the plans and breaks in and help.

    • Kelsey Florea

      Be nice if they went back to some of the there roots but without doing a reboot. I still don’t like that they rebooted dmc don’t get me ring I liked the new game but when there was a possible sequel after 4 to open more info on Nero Bergen they should have done so. But anyway resident evil dosent need a reboot just needs to go back to some of its roots and tell us what happened to berry, Rebecca, billy, Carlos and hunk. Oh and stop being over dramatic when capcom makes the game action like. The game is called biohazard that’s why they don’t focus on zombies the game is about biohazards. Resident Evil is just the name the chose to use for America and Europe. Capcom also tends to listen more to there Japanese audience and very little to there American audience.

      People expressed displeasure with the direction long before RE 6 and ORC but they decide to change now?
