Resident Evil 7 is in development and will be announced at E3 in Los Angeles next month, according to Dr. Serkan Toto, CEO of Tokyo-based games industry consultancy Kantan Games.
Toto describes the game as a “clean slate,” returning to the series’ horror roots. The team developing it is reported to have hired Jordan Amaro, a designer who previously worked on Metal Gear Solid V and P.T.
Capcom announced yesterday that it is planning the launch of a major title by March 2017 that is expected to sell approximately four million units. Resident Evil 7 would certainly fit that bill. And let’s not forget that 2016 marks the series’ 20th anniversary.
