Resident Evil 6 Summary
Capcom recently published their sales report for Street Fighter V. In, there’s a section about their upcoming games which may include a potential release window for Resident Evil 7. Here’s the exact section: ”In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company is scheduled to release… ‘Resident Evil Umbrella Corps’ (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the ‘Resident Evil’ series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as warm up to the full-scale offensive planned for the second half of the year.”
Want people to see your mug in a Capcom title? The studio is offering fans the chance to do just that by reciting your favourite Resident Evil moments. Capcom are accepting entries until April 14th. They are taking nostalgia submissions through the Resident Evil Facebook page, tweets with tag #REmemory, or by linking them YouTube videos. It's unclear if it would be a Resident Evil title.
Dead Rising 3 producer Mike Jones from Capcom Vancouver has said everybody at the company is "a huge Capcom fan." They don't have any 'yeah, whatever' employees as "most people f**king love Capcom." He admits Capcom's size makes it difficult to get "all those pieces moving in the right direction" speedily, and acknowledges mistakes but there's "a lot of big stuff" coming.
Corporate restructuring on a 'major scale' within Capcom's European division means that "more than half" of the workforce will find their positions made redundant. This follows a 'bad fiscal year' for the company. Capcom confirmed the EU business is now "currently evaluating its structure" following in the footsteps of their US operations. Missed targets have hit hard.
The next major Resident Evil instalment won't be a repeat of Resident Evil 6 which, as Capcom marketing SVP Michael Pattison acknowledges, was trying to be "too many things to all people." The term 'bloated' surfaced a lot in feedback, although Leon's missions "went down very well," they can't ignore what critic and fan feedback is telling them. There's "still a strong market" for survival horror.
