Capcom has teased that Resident Evil may very well go back to its origins in the next major entry, with traditional survival-horror atmosphere and puzzle-solving gameplay aspects reimagined in the franchise.

Speaking with fan site Rely on Horror, a Capcom representative assured the developer is fully aware that fans have been longing for a return to the horror-driven type of story, instead of the full-blown cinematic type of action gameplay.

“We know that alot of fans want more horror back for the next one, the development team knows that as well and we read a lot of comments, messageboards, and ask for feedback, and there was a lot of critisism about RE5′s focus on action,” the rep said.

“I think that you’ll like the direction the dev team is shifting for the next one.”

Resident Evil 6 is yet to be officially announced, but with that being said, it’s more than hailed to witness a nostalgic survival-horror release.  What do you say?


Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
