Resident Evil Might see a Reboot
Resident Evil Revelations producer Masachika Kawata has stated the Resident Evil franchise might see a reboot once feedback is collected from the upcoming console versions of Resident Evil Revelations. In a interview with Eurogamer, Kawata said a reboot would be accessible to new players, and would “almost ential having a slight reboot to get the series into a place it would work with open world gameplay.”
“That’s just a personal opinion,” he noted. “A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that. There is a possibility.”
Kawata is a veteran in the Capcom offices, working on every game in the Resident Evil franchise since 4. He also worked on other Capcom titles like PN03, Onimusha, and Dino Crisis.
He also said that any series changes would be looked at once Resident Evil Revelations is complete for the consoles and feedback is received.
“I think we’ll get a lot of input from the fanbase and the media on what it means for Resident Evil, and what it could mean for the future of the series,” he said. “We’ll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next.
“Moving forward I can see us focusing even more on the horror aspect and fear in the series, and see us making something scarier than we have already. If anyone is waiting for an open-world Resident Evil, I think it will certainly be quite a while.
“So in the meantime, I recommend giving Revelations a try.”
Resident Evil: Revelations will release on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in North America on May 21 and in Europe on May 24.
