Capcom: Next Major Resident Evil Game Will "Blow Our Minds"

With the recent release of Resident Evil HD Remaster not to mention the continuing, episodic launch of Revelations 2, Capcom’s illustrious horror franchise is experiencing a small resurgence, which is refreshing to see, given the reception of the most recent major installments. However, in a recent interview with VideoGamer, Michiteru Okabe — who is serving as producer on Revelations 2 — said that the next iteration will “blow our minds.”

Whether this turns out to be Resident Evil 7 or not remains to be seen, and given the fact that Okabe admitted that he knows “nothing” about the in-development title, the following extract should be taken with a grain of salt.

Unfortunately we work on Revelations and that’s kind of it…We don’t really have a window into whatever else is going on. That would be a separate team and whatever that team is doing we’re confident that those guys are going to do something that’s going to blow our minds.

Even if this quote is a little pie-in-the-sky, it’s refreshing to note that Capcom is at least tossing ideas around for a potential Resident Evil 7. Given the middling reception of RE6, there’s no question that the next installment has a considerable amount of expectation resting on its broad, reanimated shoulders. That said, there’s a lot of goodwill for the reputable Resident Evil franchise of late, and the Japanese publisher will no doubt be conscious that its reputation rests on delivering a true, current-gen horror experience.
