  • Resident Evil Present

    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.”

    • I would really like to see Sheva come back. She was a badass character, and I would really appreciate her coming back because Capcom tried to make Helena like Sheva, and they didn’t really do good. Helena just didn’t have the same badass feel you get when you play as Sheva. But they are still very much alike. As for Ada, I’m sure she will still be the zombie killing, lifesaving, sexy as hell, badass she has always been.

    • Ccate

      It would be good to choose your partner out of all existing characters that are available or if that’s too difficult, then out of two people, ie: Chris can choose Jill or Rebecca, Claire can choose Leon or Chris, Jill can choose Barry or Chris, etc etc. oh yeah and do the right thing Capcom and have Chris and Jill a couple or married!!

    • i dont want resident evil to stop in part 7, it has to continue……!!!!
      the movies of 24 also has a great collection so why cant resident evil has that.

      also it is a good story and it has a lot of fans.
      i also want ( if it ends ) that they or all die, or that they can beat/cure or whatever they do with all zombies, so they can start life on earth or another planet again.
      so it has to end good or bad not between it, so you have to make up an end by yourself, cause i really really really hate that

    • I don’t care where they go with the story. love it anyway. Although I did miss The Merchant and The safe rooms with the typewriters and most of all the Briefcase were I used to spend hours neatly sorting out my gear. simple things, but these made the game what it is for me.

    • paul

      its the same old record, i want more terror, i want stuff leaping out and running at me every 5 minutes, i want creepy music, and they need to stop making the monsters so excessive, a person turns into, something the size of a ship, without touching anything near, just a virus injection and yee haa, size of a ship, its only a game, but the realism went after the 2nd resident evil, bin to much yee haa since then

    • Jill, CLAIRE PLEASE if nobody else!! Rebecca, Shiva, Billy the women of the resident evil franchise will are good mix it up do something different but always try to keep the thrill and horror element

    • josh

      jill valentine and claire redfield should be in this! i think claire and sherry should be in it together, they need a return together.

    • Matheu

      Resident Evil 7 be nice to see Sherry Birkin

    • shayloweclowud

      Mmmm it wld b better if re7 cld put jill amd claire haven’t seen jill since re5 and they shld team claire and leon or claire and chris and they shld also put back SHEVA ALOMAR and mayb chris with Ada since chris almost killed ada in re6 they shld get along and mayb jake and Helena but its really good to mix the characters with other characters………

    • Whynot

      Well resident evil 7 is link to resident evil 6 ending, we cannot just sub in the character we want( but i also want to see new/old character too)

      as for Ada Wong campaigns, the mystery call from someone “A job huh? Sure. My schedule just cleared .” at that time, i think it won’t be the BSAA calling her as her name hasn’t been cleared due to the fake ada wong (Carla ramades ) and Leon kenedy is currently fighting Simmons so i may think is someone else other than them

      As for Jake , there is a ending on Ada Wong Campaign which he is defending a boy from B.O.Ws , as for sherry i not sure (had nothing much to say)

      As for Chris campaign, Chris mention that he will retire after the saving sherry and Jake and hoping he pass his role to his partner, Piers Nivans . After they had rescue Sherry and Jake they found out about carla’s biggest project “Haos”. They fight against Haos as sherry and jake is escaping the underwater oilfield. Piers Eventually Die( due to the explosion) as he injected himself with one of the three enchanted virus created by carla( second one was used on simmons for carla’s revenge as the thrid one is injected to herself), After defeating Haos, Piers pushes him off to the escape pod either he wanted Chris to continue his job Since he may think it is impossible to make it out alive or controlling himself due to the virus (I hope piers would come back to the game)

      As for Leon campaign’s ending, they defeated Simmons, which leaves the National Security Adviser to someone from his family? maybe? Helena’s Name was cleared even though she helps Simmons by breaching the Security. Leon could be back in resident evil 7 as Helena asked Leon to pass back her (Ada Wong) the mirror thing( sorry , don’t know what its called ) So as Helena name was cleared, her job stays so she may be back in resident evil 7.

      I would like to see claire and the others back in resident evil 7 and hoping piers nivans would be back in resident evil 7 and hoping resident evil 7 can be more scarier than resident evil 6
