Capcom has been keeping busy with all the Resident Evil HD remakes, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard news about any new additions to the core series. In a recent interview, Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata hinted that we may be hearing something soon. When asked about Resident Evil 7, Kawata said “We’re currently not at a state to talk about it… but please stay tuned.“
Kawata was also asked what his thoughts are on the series “losing its horror touch,” to which he responded:
“Since there’s been more spinoff titles, I can see how it can be perceived in such a way. And of course I believe that we should produce titles that bring out the horror. I’m thinking about it and also preparing for it.” — Masachika Kawata
It’s been three years since Resident Evil 6, and hopefully this means we won’t have to wait too much longer.
