Resident Evil 6 is ambitious says Capcom US SVP Christian Svensson who told fans not to expect any news on the sequel too soon.
Frankley i have lost all hope in another decent survival horror from capcom, Why they Don't just go back to their roots i dont know, the perfect formular is right there we don't need reboots
I agree and the controls never really bothered me with the other games but times have changed. They have a great engine but RE5 was just a strait out action game no horror at all! Just bring the horror back capcom!
RE4 and 5 both sucked i think 2 and 3 are the best outbreak 1 and file 2 were nice but not the best but in my book outbreak games > RE4 and 5 @ below it sucked as a RE game when i played 3 which was GREAT i expected much more than the next one in the main series but then again we had new cam mechanics that made it feel like a 3rd person shooter and the enemies don't feel like zombies they are like Mexican farmers or what ever they are it just feels different when you are about to run out of bullets and some zombie is limping towards you wanting to eat your brain not some Spanish dude running towards you with a shovel and those cult ppl that wears skulls on their head and what so not creepy yah but not what you expect from a RE game and some of the things made me like WTF you got some strange guy selling you things which IMO make thing TOO easy and some midget that hates you and want you dead i preferred nemesis whit his infamous "stars" line which brings me to my other point which is boss fights just too damn easy i want a surviving horror game not a 3RD person shooting game where you kill angry Mexican farmers and some extreme dark cult dont get me wrong game was great but i would love it better if it had another name but resident evil that still make me shit my pants
@obvious, LOL WHAT? RE4 sucked? it took different approach, changed the gameplay, wasn't real RE but as a standalone game it was top notch. Excellent game.
"they are like Mexican farmers or what ever they are" "not some Spanish dude running towards you with a shovel" "not a 3RD person shooting game where you kill angry Mexican farmers" *FACEPALM*
I agree with captain-obvious. I played RE4 for free and didn't like it enough to play it for very long, and that's after playing all the previous games in the series multiple times each. The demo for RE5 turned me off so much that I only played one part of the two part demo before deleting it. It wasn't because I found it hard either. I made it past the crazy villagers on the first try, even with the horrible controls. For me, the series peaked at RE2 and took a step sideways with RE3, before dropping completely off my gaming radar with RE4 and RE5.
@captain-obvious Get your sh*tty xenophobic and ignorant comment outta here
I can't believe I got 4 disagrees for my post. N4G, you are retarded. Not that I haven't known that for 4 years.
i miss the old RE from PS1 era
the "ambitious" thing is irrelevant, it can mean anything what's important about this is that this guy just confirmed the Resident Evil 6 is on active developement I liked 5, is not a great game but it's not bad by any means
re remake on gamecube was SO SO SO good.
Heaven forbid any ambition. Good god. Remake Resident Evil 2 already.
that pic ooohhhhhhhhhhhhh the memories i really loved the classic RE games please capcom get back to your roots i would really like to play a new RE game that plays and feels like the classic ones classic RE game
They stopped making them because everyone said they were getting stale.
who's this everyone you speak of?
Have you played the gamecube remake of the origional? awesome game if you havnt, and the visuals are still of todays standards and try "zero"
Not to expect any news soon....it wasn't like that last October they told us we would hear more about RE6 soon, people thought it was going to be at the VGA at some point. All they need to do is Bring horror back Follow Leon's story again with him and Ada Ada Wong has her small campagin again NO CO-OP PLEASE Rebbeca Chambers as Leon's partner A type of merchent like the one from RE4 The same inventory from RE4 which you could upgrade Mercenaries has differen't modes/challeneges (A NO TIME LIMIT MODE PLEASE)
That would make me buy it first day if it included all of that stuff. What bugs me they say reboot but Leon/Ada's story isn't finished. How did Wesker get the sample off Ada when she betrayed him, who is the other company she is working for there is Umbrella, the S company which was actually Tricill and the other one called the Agency/Organization which she is working for. Capcom really need to fill these holes in before they try and change direction but knowing these guys who think they know what people want when they don't we'll get a full co-op action game with a multiplayer mode which has been tacked on. I swear to god Capcom don't change characters when you havent finished Leon's and Ada's story.
Thank Christ you're not a game dev! Honestly, change Rebecca to Ashley and you've got RE4! It's because of casuals like you that we got RE5 the way it was (Copy+paste of RE4 with co-op) and now we're getting that Operation Raccoon City shite. If you want RE4 so much then PLAY the damn game! Stop ruining the series for those of us that want a proper RE game!
LOL calling Whitelightning casual. He has a point, just because they seem like RE4 idea's dosen't mean he's trying to say "Yeah I just want a copy and pasted game" I think he expects, well we all expect Capcom to develop on this idea. If you've saw in the past WL hates RE5, have you not seen the concept art of what RE5 used to be like he's posted. Think before you comment Sam2236
The concepts of re5 were from when it was a ps3 exclusive.
Bring back horror...Agree Follow leons....Dissagree, use billy coen from zero, excelent character and isnt stale Rebbeca chambers as billy's partner again No merchants.....your contradicting bringing back horror if there is a local gun seller following you... I like the ability to upgrade, there should just be a work station for this made with parts you find, not from picking up zombie gold and buying of this "merchant" oh capcom.....give me a job
@captain-obvious - Resi 4 didn't suck in fact it is one of the best games ever made. Resi 5 sucked I'll give you that.
Resident evil 4-5 were good actions, buts poorest of the resident evil horror franchise, completeley changed what it was about because they were trying to please a different audience,(true begining) resident evil fans didn't want the developers to change the game to suit a western audience we like it for what it was!!
I hated RE4 and RE5. Played RE4 for free and lost interest quickly. Played the RE5 demo, actually half of it, and then deleted. RE2 is the peak of the series so far.
RE5 was an okay game but it was definitely dated. The controls need some serious upgrading. The game was always really about action if you think about it. Silent Hill to me was always more of the survival horror type of game.
The problem with RE5 is that they took out most things which made RE4 good and ethier scrapped them or changed them so they were crap. For example in RE4 you picked up treasure, saw a blue light in the distance (the merchent), traded you treasures for money and bought upgrades (During the chapter). RE5 made it so you could only hold up to 9 items and the only way you could buy something is if you finished the level or died.
'' The game was always really about action if you think about it. '' True Resi was always action. Silent Hill series was the one that was actually scary.
Corporate blubber until proven true.
I hope they can make a decent reboot, it won't be easy without Mikami at the helm.
The latest iterations of Rezi were great games but they lacked the scare factor the old titles had, If they can work that back in it would be awesome.
u want a really good RE game.. easy.. start using the fixed camera again... i always felt like that made the hole difference...
Raise the bar capcom, raise the bar like you did with RE4. I would love to have a new fresh RE game that rocks.
I want Capcom to use the Dead Rising 2 engine, with some modifications to make the visuals darker, for a more open world zombie game with lots of zombies on screen at once. Put it in Raccoon City, make many buildings enterable and fortifiable like the CoD zombie mode, and make it 2 to 4 or 6 player co-op. There could be lots of objects to use as blunt instruments and some could be combined, just do away with the comedy type weapons and generally lighter tone of DR. Guns could be found in certain locations in the city, like the police station, a pawn shop, or army surplus store. Players could start out in different locations with no way to communicate, and maybe even no way to know if anyone else was in the game with them unless they entered the game together. Anyway... proximity chat only until they find some 2 way radios. Imagine being in the game with your friend, then you find a 2 way radio, then you hear someone else who you didn't even know was in the game calling for help because they are by themselves and in a boarded up building that's surrounded by zombies. Scores could be multiplied by how many people are fighting together, so there would be incentive to go rescue that person. Maybe if the person couldn't find a radio, they could find a flare and set it off in hopes that someone would see it. Of course... zombies could see it also...
The next game should be a survivors story from racoon city, gameplay should be a cross between the scares of the original resident evil and play like skyrim, but not as rpg inclined, should have rpg elements tho, equip different protective clothing like riot gear and football helmets etc, make it more like a survival horror/ adventure game....imo
