Resident Evil games in the past have generated a cult following, like with Resident Evil 4, but more recent installments, like 5, 6, or Operation Raccoon City, haven't exactly garnered the success Capcom was hoping for, despite big marketing campaigns.
Now, for the inevitable Resident Evil 7, it seems that the studio has a different sort of plan.
No exact source was given, so take the rumor with a massive grain of salt.
According to the website, Capcom reached this decision after Dead Rising 3, another Xbox One exclusive, reached good sales despite appearing on a single, just-released console.
Unfortunately, not much else is known at this time and Capcom hasn't even commented on this brand new report concerning its flagship action horror franchise.
Considering that quite some time has passed since Resident Evil 6 launched, you can bet that the Japanese developer is getting ready to debut Resident Evil 7 in the near future, probably at big trade shows like E3 2014 or Gamescom 2014.
This would be pretty neat. Hopefully they don't do co-op on RE 7, as I think it might make the game better. Although, Xbox people would probably appreciate it online if co-op was enabled, as long as it doesn't detract from the game too much. Hopefully they bring it back to something that way more horror story, and closer to something classic.
I also saw that RE4 might land on XONE also. Both stories need to be taken with a grain of salt, and all that.
I also saw that Dino Crisis: Reborn, might be a game in the works. Although, March/April's OXM has come and gone. I still think it'd be interesting, though.
Thoughts? What would you want to see in an RE7 game? A David Jaffe led RE7 game, made by 10 hungry developers, would also be awesome.
