Look, Albert Wesker Isn’t Coming Back


wesk *Something* happens to Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5. At a Comic-Con panel yesterday an attendee stepped up to the mic asked Masachika Kawata, Producer, if Wesker would ever return.


Kawata replied, “Even if you want Albert Wesker to come back there is no chance of that happening.” Perhaps, Kawata meant “there is no chance of that happening in Resident Evil 6“. Wesker will make an appearance in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles which Kawata is working on so he’s fair game for future remakes, ports, spin offs, and prequels.


Another attendee asked if Viewtiful Joe would return. Jun Takeuchi, the Producer of Lost Planet 2, fielded the question and said If we get a chance to work with Kamiya-san he would consider continuing the series. As of now there are no plans for future Viewtiful Joe games. Kamiya is now at PlatinumGames as the Director of Bayonetta.
