Like the sunrise, death and taxes, you betcha Japanese game developer is going to make the inevitable sequel to Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6. The game designer helming the project, however, is not so certain.

In February 2009, RE5 producer Jun Takeuchi said that Resident Evil 6 would be a reboot. Then, that July, Takeuchi stated it didn't seem as though he or fellow Resident Evil series vet Masachika Kawata would be in charge of the upcoming RE.

When Kotaku talked to Takeuchi later that year at the Tokyo Game Show, Takeuchi said that Capcom has not yet decided the producer for Resident Evil 6.

In a recent interview, Takeuchi once again confirmed that he certainly will not be doing RE6: "I'm not involved in Resident Evil 6. There's actually a number of things I want to do."

Like?

"If I say it like that, it might be taken as 'next game,' but before reaching the step of making a game, we — Japanese developers — have a lot of things that we must do. To begin, I have a number of things I'd like to do related to Capcom as a whole."

I hope the next RE takes out the second player. I couldn't get through RE5 with that dumb as nails AI. Also, more Leon and Ada please.
