Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi has said that he doesn’t plan to work on Resident Evil 6 at all, citing the extreme pressure he felt when creating Resident Evil 5.
“Yes, it’s true we did feel extreme pressure – and Mikami-san’s shadow – after Resident Evil 4,” Takeuchi told Xbox World 360 magazine, referencing the creator of the Resident Evil series, who left the Japanese company in 2007. “However, because we were creating the sequel to this huge franchise we wanted to make our fresh direction clear.
“Personally, I don’t think I’m gonna deal with Resident Evil 6 at all – as far as the series is concerned I’m not planning to return until at least two more Olympics have passed!”
There you have it. What do you think? Resident Evil 5 released in early 2009 to generally positive reviews, but was criticized mainly for its control system and confusing split-screen co-op.
