It Sure Looks Like Capcom is Working on Resident Evil 6

Today, Metro has dug up an older post from the horror site Rely on Horror in which Capcom's Masachika Kawata mentioned work on a new game in the series, theoretically Resident Evil 6. His statement was taken with a grain of salt, as well it should've been—it was posted in Spanish and translated into the following:

" The series will see a complete renovation with the next entry on every level. But we can't forget about all the previous entries that have led to the creation of many possibilities for the franchise. I can't say if we're going to make it (Resident Evil 6) survival horror or a shooter, but I can say that it'll be totally different."

Today on Twitter, Milla Jovovich, longtime star of the Resident Evil feature films, posted this to Twitter:

It Sure Looks Like Capcom is Working on Resident Evil 6S

Between the two mentions, it's certainly not enough to draw any solid conclusions, but it does seem as though Capcom is indeed working on a new Resident Evil game. Yes, the news that a big game company is working on a sequel to one of their most well-known franchises isn't exactly groundbreaking. But I for one am interested to see if they actually shake up the formula this time. I don't know about you, but when I read "complete renovation," I see "Moving while shooting."

A guy can dream…
