For me, Resident Evil 7 was good, so I’m nicely up for seeing the place Capcom can take it. I kinda hope they go the Resident Evil 2 route and take us right into a zombie-infested metropolis once more – present us that situation from this new perspective. I’m performed with gloop monsters now. 

Speaking in regards to the reception from gamers, Tekeuchi says it “shows that the concept [Capcom] chose was the right one”. 

“We wanted this title to be the start of a new kind of survival horror and of a new series,” he says. “We’re already serious about varied plans for the subsequent sport, however we additionally need to see how we are able to proceed to evolve survival horror itself. 

“In the subsequent few years expertise will proceed to advance, and what gamers need might also change, however we are going to all the time need to create horror experiences the place the characters overcome a tough state of affairs. To me that’s what horror is all about.”

So they need to preserve it character-driven, and it feels like they’re pleased with the angle shift, so all that’s left to make an enormous change is a shift in situation. Maybe we’re getting Raccoon City in spite of everything.

“Plans for the next title are already in motion and, when you see that game, you may find that it is very different from Resident Evil 7 in some ways,” teases Tekeuchi.
