Rumor: Resident Evil In the Hands of SOCOM Team

A document forwarded to Kotaku indicates that a new, team-based Resident Evil game is currently in development at Slant Six.

The story is too old to be commented.

What was once a survival horror title could possibly now be a squad shooter?


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

Klipz-Wish3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

Why would RE have socom gameplay? If anything I picure it being like the old outbreak games

come_at_me_bro3650d ago

An Outbreak reboot would be so awesome, but it'd probably be ruined in the process.

EYEamNUMBER13650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

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?

"squad shooter"?

Developers are capable of producing more than one genre of game, doncha know....

Red_Orange_Juice3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

They're not a "SOCOM team" they're a team which ruined SOCOM, that's a difference

bostoner3649d ago

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.

Imperator3650d ago

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.

JsonHenry3650d ago

So sad. :(

At least there is still hope with games like Silent Hill and Siren.

DigitalAnalog3650d ago

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

PS360fanboy3650d ago

let's hope this is just a rumor...the RE series is already enough ruined!

avengers19783650d ago

Can they make it so you can move and shoot at the same time.

tacosRcool3650d ago

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!

RumbleFish3650d ago

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...

T9X693650d ago

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.

jc485733650d ago

it's cheaper to work with worst developers.

T9X693650d ago

True, but look how Confrontation turned out. Horrible and a disgrace to the SOCOM name and fan base.

units3650d ago

this is terrible news

Handhelds_FTW3650d ago

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.

jay23650d ago

What a load of poo this game will be.......
