Resident Evil: Reboot Required? (TechZwn)

With the mixed response to Resident Evil 6 and uncertainty of the franchises future, is a reboot the best option to revive the undead series?

Yes, make it scary like it should be. For gosh sake the last two were nothing like RE should be, granted I did like 5, but 6 sucked rotten eggs.

Reboot? RE6 was their chance at a reboot and they ruined it. I think they should do remakes, give RE2 and RE3 the treatment that they gave RE1 on the Gamecube.

boldscot3855d ago

A reboot probably won't work either. As long as the same people who steered the game in the wrong direction are making the decisions the game will always suck.
Anyone that thought it needed to be turned into a brain dead shoot em up shouldn't be left near the series again.

A reboot wouldn't even help. without Shinji, RE is nothing. Plus capcom said they wanted to attract the COD crowd. so it's really no hope. No Shinji Mimaki, and Capcom's habit of not listening to their fans. Plus they're obsessed with ''DLC''. They are really not to be trusted.

They said 6 was supposed to be the reboot.

That's good we don't need anymore huge publishers purchase

blackblades6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

It was obvious also pretty sure the others big JP company would decline both of them. Wish he said more like "even if we were looking to be bought MS can't buy us anyways"

"even if we were looking to be bought MS can't buy us anyways"

They would also refuse a offer from Sony as well, so Sony can´t buy them "anyways".

Good ol' predictable Obscure....

Phil Spencer: getting Capcom would be another moment and I honestly believe a good move for both companies. It's just taking a long time for Capcom to see that their future exists only on Xbox hardware. A long time.... :-)

Chocoburger5d ago

For the people who don't know, Outside_ofthe_Box is being sarcastic. He doesn't actually want to see anyone buy CAPCOM.

badboyz095d ago

Every company wants to get bought.

Chocoburger5d ago

So does that mean Microsoft also wants someone to buy them out?

OhReginald5d ago

you would think that with how much money M$ they would have enough resources to make quality games instead of just buying already successful studios / publishers. But I guess whats the point if they have the money to burn. Just look at all the canceled games and flops under M$'s direction in the past 10 years. I guess they were tired of being the laughing stock of the gaming industry.

MrBaskerville5d ago

They release another Forza next month. First new game i ages that isn't either Bethsda or Obsidian. They would be in serious trouble without Bethesda.

*Until Microsoft offers the right price

tay87015d ago

Nah not happening. Very unlikely MS will be able to aquire any Japanese publisher. It's not for lack of money, more to do with culture.

TheEnigma3135d ago

Nah, Capcom makes more money on Sony than xbox. A buyout would kill the company.

It's always been that way because resident evil and PlayStation have a history. Even resident evil and Nintendo have history. But Xbox? Not really. Maybe exclusive dlc for that crappy brainless crappy third person COD like operation raccoon city shooter that released in 2012 that was obviously targeting Xbox like... "Clientele".

cammers19954d ago (Edited 4d ago )

Microsoft has never been able to properly push into the Japanese market. Every Xbox system and major game they've released there failed. Nintendo and Sony have a hold there and always will.
