Capcom released "too many" Resident Evil titles last year, admits Revelations producer

Capcom released "too many" Resident Evil titles in the "last year or two", Resident Evil Revelations producer Masachika Kawata has told VideoGamer.com, admitting that the publisher has learned that "putting on a lot of titles [does] not necessarily win over gamers". (3DS, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Just bring back the old RE titles, remastered HD, trophies, etc. That's all I'm asking for Capcom please.
JeromeNtheHouse  +   544d ago
Seriously!!! Scrap the over-the-top nonsense in RE5 and 6, and get back to business. Make it scary and bring back the survial horror aspect...It's that simple.

Capcom is just...hahaha (can't even find the words to describe them) If anyone can think of some words to fill in and describe Cap...I mean Cashcom, please feel free.

b-b-b-but....Capcom was trying to make a Resident of Duty for ALL US MURRRICANS. Cuz 'Duty' action games gets teh money.

this is a call to all Japanese devs and publishers; please return to what you do best - to your classics and fundamentals that made RE and RE2 so awesome and thrilling (silent hill too). that made Shadow of the colossus and FF7 so intriguing and captivating

Kojima is the only one who still does a very decent job. MGS5 is going to amaze us like MGS4 did for me anyway :)

i dont know if that's the best thing to do i think they should forget about those and try to go back to the roots with the next one. You can play RE in HD on your PC with Dolphin emulator for Wii and Gamecube. i did that and i replayed them from 1 to Code: Veronica. Pure awesomeness!

They just need to give the fans what they want; it's that simple. We don't want unlimited ammo, health, and data saves.

very true, and every company that doesn't respect that is going down hill, just look at Square Enix...
TheEnigma313  +   544d ago
Square and Capcom has fallen way off this gen. Hopefully next gen they get back to what they're good at. And I hope this on disc dlc stops.

Too many and 2/3 of them REALLY subpar. 1 that was pretty good

"Capcom released "too many" Resident Evil titles last year, admits Revelations producer"

That's a lame excuse, it wouldn't matter how many Resident Evil games were released if they were all actually good games.

I really enjoyed Revelations - and, yes, even Resi 6...
boldscot  +   544d ago
The problem was the main game in the series was an action game not a Resident Evil game.
I have Resident Evil 6, I've managed to complete Leon's campaign but can't bring myself to finish the other's.
I should have just traded it in but couldn't bring myself to do it to my favourite game series, Res 1 was the 1st ever PS1 game I played and I was hooked after that.
Capcom are doing their best to get rid of though it seems!
Ashunderfire86  +   544d ago
Ada Wong's campaign is the best, because she is a lone wolf plus you get to solve puzzles like the tradition resident evil games. It even has less quick time events than the other campaigns. You gonna have to be stealthy too. Her campaign also fill in the void for the story also.

Then more people feeling like that should have stopped funding the crap action game twice already , and only supported games like Revelations (or should have wait for home console versions) or the re-releases .

Instead we have the same bunch conning themselves over and over , and trying games "out of curiosity" or out of fear of a franchise dying . At 60$ it's time to let go of that mentality imo .

I've seen people buying a ps3 and 360 over re6 , knowing they've had issues with it , and constantly moaning about it . When for a cheaper price they could have gotten instead a 3ds and revelations and be somewhat pleased

You won't win over gamers unless you go back to the PROPER way.
ayabrea93  +   544d ago
I think an HD update of the REmake would tide us fans over.
Young_ART  +   544d ago
I'm starting to notice a trend nowadays. Developers are turning their backs on their core fanbase to try and appeal to casuals, only to see the casuals go back to the new CoD by the end of the year.

It happened to my favorite multiplayer game "SOCOM"
JeromeNtheHouse  +   544d ago
True indeed.(Even though I disagree with the idea) In their defense in terms of marketing and making money, it's a smart business move. At the same time however, they're losing site of made said devloper popular in the eyes of the core gamers/fans.

It really is sad to see that they'll place money over values, and turn their backs on their true fans.
Pozzle  +   544d ago
At this point, I just want to see Capcom put their efforts into an old-school survival horror Resident Evil AND give it the ridiculous amount of marketing and hype that RE5 and RE6 had. They say that people aren't interested in horror games anymore, and yet I'm sure they'd be surprised if they actually put any effort into both the development and the advertising.
CanadianTurtle  +   544d ago
Honestly, why don't these idiots actually acknowledge the fact that they made some really bad games. And maybe try to make an actual good RE game.
fossilfern  +   544d ago
Well atleast Capcom is starting to notice but I saw this line on a Eurogamer article:

"If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players."

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

Pretty much what they tried doing with RE5 and 6 so I'm not interested until Capcom make a worthy RE game. Im sorry to say it but Revelations was okay, not as amazing as people make it out to be IMO but maybe thats because the last two RE games have been Sub-par at best.
Baka-akaB  +   544d ago
Except they didnt really try that with RE5-6 imo , sure there were the leon parts in re6 , but the rest was just PR and marketing talk .

Have you seen a franchise at odds with what the old fans expect , not being defended that way by PR folks ? I havent

Well I meant that they have tried to keep the RE games appealing to fans while making it accessible to new players, I know they havnt made it open world. I should of been more clear on that sorry.

Im not too sure I understand your last comment but Capcom did say that RE6 will keep old fans happy but the entire thing was filled with quick time events and set pieces and no horror.

Baka-akaB  +   544d ago
I still dont feel they've made such an effort to content everyone , at least hardly enough of one .

And my latter point is that they always claim they'll make everyone happy , weither they try or not
fossilfern  +   544d ago
Yea thats true. I really dont think Capcom can drag this series from the grave. The damage has been done.
bryam1982  +   544d ago
Just get back to the old formula like real zombies,the mansion,single player,nice and simple history ufff those were the days

*runs to play resident evil 1 on his gamecube*
GABRIEL1030  +   544d ago
Enough of stupid zombies Capcom must make a new Dino Crisis.
Deku-Johnny  +   544d ago
They should've only made Revelations, it was the only good RE: game last year.
ssbains  +   544d ago
What about Street Fighter IV, Capcom milked that franchise too, how many releases, then Super Street Figher IV, then Arcade edition, DLC on disk !
iMaim  +   544d ago
Why not just give it to Ninja Theory so they can reboo ... Shit.
