Tokyo-based game industry consultant Kantan Games’ CEO Dr. Serkan Toto had a couple interesting tweets regarding the possible announcement of Resident Evil 7 at E3 2016 next month.
“About Resident Evil 7: Yes, it’s in development,” tweeted Serkan Toto. “The entire game will go back to Resident Evil’s horror roots and (essentially) be a clean slate.”
He continued, “they will show it at E3. The Resident Evil 7 team hired Jordan Amaro, a designer who previously worked on Metal Gear Solid V and P.T. at Kojima Productions.”
As always, it’s best to take any kind of rumor by the grain of salt, but do keep in mind that Capcom did mention that they’re planning a “full-scale offensive” for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, and they also mentioned that they have a couple major titles in the works, with one expected to sell in the 4 million unit-range and the other 2 million unit-range.
