Jul 02, 2024 9:23 AM

Capcom has officially confirmed that a new Resident Evil game is in development, and it's being directed by Koshi Nakanishi, the mind behind Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Announced during the Capcom Next showcase, Nakanishi revealed that while details are still scarce, the new installment aims to deliver intense scares much like its predecessor. Resident Evil 7, noted for its return to the survival horror roots, was a turning point for the series, and this new project seeks to build on that terrifying legacy. The 2017 release of Resident Evil 7 managed to sell over 13 million copies, highlighting the strong fanbase eager for more horror.

What can we expect from the new Resident Evil game?n

While specifics are not yet disclosed, we can anticipate that the new Resident Evil game will focus heavily on horror elements, aiming to frighten players significantly, much like Resident Evil 7 did. The game is likely to prioritize atmosphere and tension over action-heavy gameplay.

The Resident Evil series has been a cornerstone in the survival horror genre since its inception in 1996. Over the years, it has evolved from fixed camera angles and tank controls to first-person perspectives, always staying true to its horror roots. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard marked a critical and commercial success, reinvigorating the franchise and taking it back to its terrifying origins. This new installment, directed by the same visionary, promises to continue that tradition.
