If Resident Evil 6 didn’t impress you, good news. Capcom have heard your issues and are planning to return the game to its survival horror roots with Resident Evil 7. Even though the game sold about 5 million copies they had expected the game to hit 7 and have looked at several reviews and plan to correct their errors.
“We have obviously seen the consumer response and the PR response,” former Capcom marketing boss Michael Pattison told MCV.
“There was some great positives out of that, but it was a mixed bag, as we saw from the review scores. We have got to take that on-board, we can’t ignore that, and we have to take that onto the next game when we make the next Resident Evil.
He added: “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 Revelations 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.”
This is very good news for horror gamers. We may finally get the bad ass Resident Evil game we have been waiting several years for.
