Several new details have been revealed in regards to the tentatively-titled, "Resident Evil 7." According to a report from Inquisitr on June 1, Capcom won't be announcing the sequel at E3 2014 as previously rumored. Instead, a new spin-off title from the survival-horror series may be coming out instead. The leaks apparently came from two different sources.

The new game is apparently similar to "Resident Evil: Revelations," which came out originally for the Nintendo 3DS on Feb. 27, 2012. The spin-off title brings the series back to the core survival-horror elements found in the earlier installments of the series instead of the more action-packed focus of "Resident Evil 4," "Resident Evil 5" and "Resident Evil 6." The handheld spin-off was eventually ported to the PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on May 21, 2013. A screen of "Resident Evil: Revelations" from the series' official Facebook page can be seen near the top of this article.

Furthermore, the new game apparently features three returning characters from the series, one of which is a man while the other two are women. Some of the familiar faces have not been seen for over ten years, providing an incentive for old school fans who have soured on the franchise to return. Although Capcom is not holding a press conference, the company could appear during the media briefings of Microsoft Studios or Sony Computer Entertainment.

Although the aforesaid "Resident Evil: Revelations" was received well by the community, "Resident Evil 6" got very mixed reviews. Aside from a new game from the survival-horror franchise, Capcom is also rumored to be announcing "Dragon's Dogma 2," possibly as an exclusive game for the Xbox One. Furthermore, the same publisher should also provide more information of "Deep Down," a free-to-play action role-playing game for the PS4. E3 2014 is set to begin on June 10 although a lot of major publishers are holding press conferences the day before the event.
