A document forwarded to Kotaku indicates that a new, team-based Resident Evil game is currently in development at Slant Six.
What was once a survival horror title could possibly now be a squad shooter? Really? Could actually see it being cool if said squad could breakup into individuals who had to wonder around a mansion, join up in part or whole to deal with bosses and mini bosses, but that would be a tall order on current consoles.
i don't believe this is true but ugh if so the way i picture is just terrible i can't see it being good whatever it wold be all i can picture is RE with socom gameplay
Why would RE have socom gameplay? If anything I picure it being like the old outbreak games
An Outbreak reboot would be so awesome, but it'd probably be ruined in the process.
whenever capcom gives one of their games to the west they end up changing things up so much so i don't see this being like outbreak
Slant six, won't say more then that.
"RE a team based shooter? What was once a survival horror title could possibly now be a squad shooter?" "squad shooter"? Developers are capable of producing more than one genre of game, doncha know....
They're not a "SOCOM team" they're a team which ruined SOCOM, that's a difference
Agree they messed up on confrontation but I know many people that still play that game.... Ill even throw it in once and a while. What they did get down, not from day one but eventually, was the gameplay feel on SOCOM. I've always thought Socom was one of those games you can give to a Noob and they'll at least kill someone. I think they will do better with RE, because since they are making a shooter RE and don't have to copy a previous title like they did with socom. They just cant botch the servers again.
if this is true looks like capcom hasn't learned anything giving more of their franchises to the west... gonna end up being terrible in some way just like everything else
A Resident Evil game with Team Based mechanics? Maybe Resident Evil Outbreak 3? With online capabilities far more better than last gen. I think Capcom might take another crack at making another RE Outbreak. Other than that, Very skeptical especially with Slant Six developing considering my experience with Socom: Confrontation but I'll give it a chance and hope that the team based mechanics work out with RE while retaining that RE atmosphere.
Slant six just made a Socom spinoff. They are not "the SOCOM team." That would be Zipper who makes games exclusively on the PS3.
Well at least the series can stop trying to imitate an action-zombie flick. Step 1: REAL zombies. Step 2: Drop the co-op crap. Step 3: Creepy enviroments. Step 4: Claire Redfield. LOTS of Claire Redfield.
Multiplayer squad shooter? The once great Resident Evil? This gotta be a f*cking joke.
So sad. :( At least there is still hope with games like Silent Hill and Siren.
Now that he "conveniently" left CAPCOM after allowing DMC crap as a "legacy". It's like he's literally trying to break CAPCOM while keeping his hands clean. Now we have rumors of ANOTHER western developer taking on the franchise. All I can say Inafune. Bravo. Bravo! Now make your own company and bring back Shinji and Hideki. -End statement
let's hope this is just a rumor...the RE series is already enough ruined!
Can they make it so you can move and shoot at the same time.
They already had RE Outbreak that that was a team shooter so this would make RE so much better if they were working on this game!
This is bad news for all RE fans. Slant 6 is obviously the most untallented studio of all time and are easily able to ruin even the best franchise.
Slant Six? I dont know about this...
Slant Six is by far one of the worst developers. After what they did with SOCOM, if this is true, RE will be destroyed. Now if it happen to be Zipper, the real SOCOM team, then I would be excited, but Slant Sux? No way.
it's cheaper to work with worst developers.
True, but look how Confrontation turned out. Horrible and a disgrace to the SOCOM name and fan base.
this is terrible news
Well I guess at this point why not. I mean it seems RE has lost it self and its been all over the the genre spectrum. Next stop, an RPG title. Hope it plays just as well at it reads on paper. Capcom you don't need to reinvent the wheel, you just need to grease it.
What a load of poo this game will be.......
that would be extremely random
SOCOM Team = Zipper
They meant Slant Six, the more recent Socom team. Zipper is Sony's 1st party.
The more recent Socom team = Zipper I know they meant Slant Six, but they were let go of Socom years ago and only made one game.
Actually they made 3 Socom games and only developed Socom games, 1 of which was decent...but yea they aren't the real Socom Team that would be Zipper
Doesn't matter who it is, you don't hand over a survival horror series to a bunch of guys who make squad based shooters. This is absolute horrible news and I hope this is not true at all.
can you say "outbreak" herp derp
Ugh ... that game was garbage. I still have it lol .... -_-
My god i hope this rumor is some sick fools joke.....SLANT SIX????????? the game will fail and suck and be nothing but glitches WORST DEV EVER!!!! what a cruel thing to do to Resident Evil...screw you whoever decided to let those idiots touch this game if its true
RE5 was a cruel thing to do the Resident Evil. Slant Six can't do any worse.
First Ninja Theory, Now Slant Six? Really, Capcom? The Socom game they made, Confrontation, was actually the worst in the series :( Fingers crossed they don't mess up Resident Evil.
they prolly wanna make something in the lines of L4D in 3rd person/survival horror genre
COngrats CRAPCOM, you are fully westernized now!!!! Hope you're happy with Bad games....
First DMC now RE?. This has disaster written all over it.
Slant Six? Wth is Capcom on crack?! Can I run and gun at least? :)
Capcom should sell themselves to Sony so that Sony 1st party studios can make they games.
I would say MS needs them more than Sony does.
This could be the cherry on the top of the death of the franchise. Capcom need a reboot and quick.
After seeing DmC why would you want another reboot?
Oh God, as if getting Ninja Theory to develop "DMC" wasn't bad enough, now this?
Unless Sony is selling off their Socom team to Capcom there is a small chance in hell of this happening.
Sony never owned Slant Six
uh-oh... I smell another mediocre game giving Resident Evil a bad name...
maybe it will be good, but I dont know if capcoms new approach to development is a good one. there trying to appeal to what they think "western" gamers want but alienating all the millions of fans who buy there japanese developed games. I blame microsoft and there over saturation of shooters and violence. I would go as far as to say microsoft is pushing lots of money into changing the whole japanese gaming landscape just because thats the one area where there kind of games dont do well because it seems like japanese people want to do more then just kill one another online. I say good for them.
not good for microsoft I mean good for the japanese people, had to clear that up haha
If it had of been Zipper, i would have no complaints.
4 player co-op, communication, voice control+zombies! also...we wouldn't have to kill African people again:) since we will be killing Afrikan slave trades in Revelations.
Capcom is letting in major devs go away and they are only thinking in profits!Im starting to think that all this moves by Capcom about buying western devs companys and handle major IP to external devs (like Bionic Comando-Devil may Cry and now it seems RE too) have something to do with the lack of internal development teams ( mostly major devs developers) and not just the westernization of japanese videogames!Most likely games will start coming more unpolished from now on just to make rapid profits! just take a look at this interview to Inafune and take thoughts ... http://scrawlfx.com/2010/11...
Since when is slant six the 'socom team'. They made one socom game, oh and it sucked ass. If it is being developed by slant six, I'm quite sure it'll be garbage.
never ever call slant six the socom team,they are crappy developers. Zipper are the socom team.
ohhhh god first Dmc now Resident Evil , can things getting worst?
ya...cuz they couldnt choose a worse developer....if they really do this i wont buy this trash and ill hate capcom forever....this is a slap in the consumers face letting this winner develop the game.
Really? Fireteam Bravo 3 was a great PSP game and just as good as the first two, imo.
Was and is a very bad game fun because is a socom game but it has to many bugs and thing and they never could fix what they did wrong /6 are not good, maybe their psp games are but their only ps3 game is a mess
"Slant Six. Ruining your favorite franchises one game at a time." Good idea, wrong dev team.
I hope this is not true.
Biohazard: Outbreak 3!
