According to a report from RPS on Thursday, Capcom VP of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson talked about how after the upcoming releases they have planned for "Resident Evil," they will take appraisal of everything.
"I wouldn’t say [we released] too many. 'Revelations,' 'Operation: Raccoon City,' and 'Resident Evil 6.' So it was a lot in 12 months.
"And then we’re bringing 'Revelations' to consoles and PC in a few months. But after that, you’re going to see us scale back, take stock of what worked and what didn’t work, and think about what the future of the franchise is," Svensson said.
Svensson then acknowledged all of the different fans they have and how they are going to look to build the next game for everyone.
"Well, you have to understand, we have a couple different sets of Resident Evil fans.
"We have those who love 'Resident Evil' 1, 2, 3, 'Code Veronica,' and 'Zero,' and then we have those who came along during the 'RE4' era and like things a little more action-oriented, and 'RE5' even more [action-oriented]. And then 'RE6' was even more action-focused than that.
"The hard part is taking all these things and figuring out how to make something for everyone. That was especially the aspiration of 'RE6.'
"I don’t know that it worked out exactly the way we hoped, but moving forward, I think you’re going to see a bit more focus – as opposed to trying to be all things for all people," Svensson said.
