Can western developers put the spark back into the Resident Evil franchise?

After Shinji Mikami confirmed Resident Evil 6 in a Spanish Magazine special and producer Jun Takeuchi revealed that the game would, once again, completely reboot the series, the Resi-Rumor-Mill has been grinding full-speed!

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • According to recent rumors however, California-based developer Spark Unlimited is working on two projects, one of which could be Resident Evil 6.

    To back up this assumption, the studio is currently hiring according to its jobs page, which includes an opening for a lead designer. The site also recently stated that this mystery project is “a breakout game based on an established console franchise,” and “a bold new take on 3rd Person Action/Horror.” And after meetings with Capcom’s VFX designer, Hoshiko Oyamatsu, this could be a worthy assumption.

    Meanwhile, Spark Unlimited have responded to queries about the project via Twitter: “Spark is the developer,” they tweeted, “We are concerned that we deliver the game. The publisher delivers the fan demand as they think best.”

    They also stated (rather non-committaly), “we can neither confirm nor deny what we are working on or whom we are working with.”

    So what do you make of this rumor? Are you a fan of the Resident Evil Franchise? Feel free to leave your comments and opinions in the section below!

      Resident evil 6 shouldn’t be a reboot ;/ except if they changed the title.. I’m a big fan and I liked every game, storylines and the changes.

      There is no need for a reboot, unless they put on a good ending which answers all the questions and satisfy the fans. -_-

    • One, this series needs to finally be put to rest. Two, we don’t need any more reboots/re-hashes/remakes/re-telling or anything else with the Resident Evil series. The games have gone as far off the grid as the films have. How bout we get back to what started it all?

    • I’m excited to see what will happen to the series, so far Capcom has done fantastic with them. I would however enjoy seeing the series rebooted in a way that made it play more similar to past games. Which I prefer. But either way, exciting news. Hopefully the game will be good.

    • Such an eloquent, thoughtful comment lol. Care to explain why you don’t like these rumors?

    • I’ll be straight with you @facebook-729905702:disqus , I’m not a fan of the original RE games and not for lack of trying to play them. I didn’t get into the series until they changed them to include more action in RE4 & RE5. And considering the increased sales, I doubt Capcom will be going back to straight-up horror scared style. Although they have hinted that’s (in a way) what they are going for with the next portable RE, RE Revelations on 3DS, so you might want to check out the demo for that that comes with Mercenaries 3D.

      RE 1 2 & 3 and yes veronica x are great games but RE4 and 5 i didnt like both these games are to easy unlike 1 2 3 and veronica x and RE4 and 5 was more about Action then Horror i remeber playing the 1st one and jumping out of my skin when all them birds come crashing through the window or have dogs jumping up at you and other things like this in RE4 and 5 then was no fear factor like in the first 3 games and the puzzles was a big part of the first 3 game to if they do make a RE6 i hope they dont make it like 4 and 5
