A formal announcement from Capcom should be on the horizon, but for now the designer behind Mega Man has strongly hinted – to say the least – that Resident Evil 6 is on its way.
Translated from an interview with Spanish gaming site 3Djuegos, Keiji Inafune has said:
Given the great success that supposed for us Resident Evil 5, we want that Resident Evil 6 leaves as rapidly as possible to the market. In fact, you will shortly have the news of Capcom about this…
Forgive the dodgy web translation, but this is as good a confirmation of the next installment in Capcom’s premier franchise as we’ve had.
With recent announcements that the developer will be working with more Western talent on future projects, we could see another new direction for Resident Evil. Or we could have another co-op action adventure with vampires instead of zombies.
Vampires are still cool, right?
