The Resident Evil 7 Rumor – Is it Still Too Soon to Make it a Reality?

Despite the revelation that the image of a supposed E3 Resident Evil 7 poster that had been circulating around the internet turned out to be part of a hoax, it brings up a very important question regarding the future of the Resident Evil franchise. Is it too soon to start thinking about the next entry in the series? (Dev, E3, Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil: Revelations HD)

Lol, I keep seeing RE6 on sale for under 20 bucks new and always pass it up. Sorry, Resident Evil died at 5 for me... When they go back to what made the series what it was, I'll buy them again.

RE & Scamcom died to me with that game. Between the horrible game play with a forced AI partner to the Scamcom ripoff tactics of locking the MP on the disc and charging for it.

RE5 was the last Crapcom game I bought.

The only way they can do that is to reboot it because they made it too silly and ruined good characters in RE6

I still say they should reboot it but start again from the mansion incident so it's like a rbeoot/retelling, add more rooms, enemies, backstory like an advanced Resident Evil Remake which was on Gamecube, change things around which would affect the future timeline and by the time RE4 comes around they don't have to have all that plagas crap, you could find out that Wesker learnt of the plagas, saw it as a threat that other rival companies would use it or eventually steal it and instead of stealing it he decided to bomb the village killing everyone thus the plagas being not exsisting

Fans would experience RE in all it's glory

Fans would have their favourite, NOT RUINED, characters back

We'd get to experience Raccoon City again but this time in HD

Wesker would be back and might get a proper death in the future instead of that volcano bullcrap

I reckon it could be fantastic if done right,

somehow a women getting fire powers from a vrus isn't silly -_- i'm TIRED of the mansion setting, and the old setting, its was the same thing over and over and BECAUSE OF THE FANS COMPLAINING, they changed everything to the new style, and you people won't be satisfied even if they remade the first game or did that old stiff outdated gameplay style again, WE'VE ALREADY EXPERIENCED RACCOON CITY IN HD, they need to stop backtracking, say, screw the nostalgia fanboys because they'll never stop whining, you especially -_-

"i'm TIRED of the mansion setting,"

But...only one game was set in a mansion. o_O
(one and a half, if you could Umbrella Chronicles)

"and the old setting"

But... only three games were set in Raccoon City. (Not counting Operation Raccoon City, because that game was a piece of shit and city barely resembled Raccoon City at all.)

"and you people won't be satisfied even if they remade the first game"

But...they DID remake the original game. And it was excellent.

"they need to stop backtracking, say, screw the nostalgia fanboys"

That's exactly what Capcom have been doing. On what planet have they been catering to the nostalgia fanboys?? They've flat-out admitted the audience they want to attract is CoD fans.

somehow i was stupid enough to think RE6 was gonna be a good game and preorder it on STEAM for 60 bucks

i only played like a minute of it..

the moment i was running on those rails and dodge a moving train with an helicopter .. i said to myself

OK.. its shit... im out.

never touch it again
Cam977  +   645d ago
No, Resident Evil is dead to me. I hope The Evil Within takes its place and lives up to the hype.
Speed-Racer  +   645d ago
Sorry, but RE was only fun back when I was 7 or so. Pretty much got lame after that. it scared the crap out of me back then... so let's go back to those days.
mcroddi  +   645d ago
Surely we will hear about it in the fall, maybe 2014?
sparta76  +   645d ago
Reboot please!!
Puppy_Farts  +   645d ago
I was alright with 6, I didn't hate it but it wasn't anything special. I won't deny that I enjoyed playing it. With that said, if 7 does come out, please please make it the finale; include everyone we all love (Claire and Rebecca, please), Kill some people off (Chris, please) JUST END IT WITH SOME DIGNITY! :)
Enemy  +   645d ago
I'm done with Resident Evil. If The Evil Within lives up to the hype, it will bury Resident Evil in the trash pile it stands on.
Gamesgbkiller  +   645d ago
I hope they release a handheld RE game.

I think it will be better than 6 .

BTW what happned to the RE outbreak on VITA rumor ?

Was that fake ?
DarkBlood  +   645d ago
i believe that ended up being revelationfor the 3ds at the time.
DarkBlood  +   645d ago
id welcome a reboot, but i dislike unfinished stories so bring on re7 and write it good so it ending it makes sense somewhat then kick in the reboot or not.

p.s. i still want that re2 remake lol
bohangirl84  +   645d ago
I'm with you on that and there is a petition for an RE2 remake that over 29,000 people signed already. It's clear that many of us still love the classics and I hope Capcom realizes this.
sync90  +   645d ago
After 6, does anybody care?
NihonjinChick  +   645d ago
They need to reboot the series and bring it back to it's survival horror roots.
cyberninja  +   645d ago
They better make it dark and atmospheric, bring puzzles back too.
bohangirl84  +   645d ago
I couldn't agree with you more Ninja. I can't help but look to Capcom with confusion. What is so wrong about making games like REmake and 2?
leahcim  +   645d ago
Capcom needs to redeem all of these generation shitty Resident Evil (exept 5)
segamon  +   645d ago
where's that REboot button?

they need to make some major changes for number 7 if they want me to buy it as im getting a little bored of them now same gameplay diff story,and its a shame as the 1st few resi games are in my top 5 games of all time
josephayal  +   645d ago
Really hope that they will reveal Resident Evil 6-2 at Gamescom 2013
Treian  +   645d ago
I really enjoyed Revelations on my PS3. Please base RE7 off of that and improve upon it,.
CalamityCB  +   645d ago
Anyone ready for a reboot, they should do the story direction all the way up to 3, then take the story in a new original direction.
breakpad  +   645d ago
...i really like what s i happening to Resident evil series...they got what they deserve...nobody told them to westernize the series and make a BAD copy of a BAD western game (COD,etc etc)..i also dont liked RE:Revelation (no imagination at all ..just full of grotesque -whatever -type of creatures). They need to fully reboot the series and copy their good former selves (before RE4)
Bhuahahaha  +   645d ago
crapcom should let the franchise rest for around 3-4 yrs to build some hype and think about what makes r.e a r.e.

Resident Evil needs to go into a slumber for at least the next 3 years.

And while they're at it, now is a good time to bring back Onimusha for fucks sake.
Eruadan  +   643d ago
Haven't played a resi game for years, they should go back to the series' roots for their next numbered sequel. True survival horror, that's my opinion anyway.
