With sales of Resident Evil 5 well past five million units sold, it’d be pretty stupid if Capcom wasn’t going to create a Resident Evil 6. Capcom agrees.
“Honestly,” Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi told Kotaku at TGS, “the producer for Resident Evil 6 hasn’t been decided yet.” Takeuchi has recently expressed feelings that he’d like to do a fresh new Resident Evil.
“I think, while Resident Evil 4 is a great game, its appeal was limited somewhat to maniac players,” Takeuchi said. “With Resident Evil 5, I wanted to bring the series to a larger audience. I think its important to do the same for the next Resident Evil.”
