Resident Evil 7 could be officially released during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. The major details concerning this long-awaited classic-horror game Resident Evil 7 is still unavailable and Capcom has preferred to remain silent about the future of the RE franchise. However, most rumor mills suggest that this game will be officially released during the E3 expo.
However, we are waiting to see whether this will come to reality since the developer company has not provided a lot of information after their announcement in October 2015. During an interview with Japanese magazine Dengeki Playstation via Siliconera, Producer Masachika Kawata declared that fans should get ready for Resident Evil and he further added that they are currently not in a position to talk about it but he asked us to stay tuned.
Earlier, the previous game in this franchise faced a lot of criticism regarding the fact that it had a lot of gunplay but lacked the presence of tension and setting associated with its precursors.
The game producer further declared, “Since there’s been more spinoff titles, I can see how it can be perceived in such a way. And of course I believe that we should produce titles that bring out the horror. I’m thinking about it and also preparing for it.”
In order to revive the game, the plot of the upcoming Resident Evil 7 should go back to its roots and feature horror scenes which come with survival modes. According to some speculations, Raccoon City might serve as the map where the original outbreak was actually depicted.
Moreover, Resident Evil will witness the return of Nemesis and William Birkin. They made the first three iterations successful compared to the subsequent ones which ended up generating negative feedback.
In the meantime, the development team behind the game has been considering the review of players and further declared that they have to change some aspects of the game in the future.
The former marketing boss, Michael Pattison revealed that they have definitely seen the response from consumers as well as the PR reaction. Pattison said while talking to MCV, “With ‘Resident Evil 6’ specifically, we probably put too much content in there, there were comments from consumers that said it felt bloated.
The Leon missions went down very well, and because we did ‘Resident Evil Revelations’ on 3DS, there was a cry out for us to focus our attention on survival horror, rather than be too many things to all people.”
Capcom has pledged that will make Resident Evil epic and scary again and they wish to do so by restoring horror in Resident Evil 7. Even then, you shouldn’t put really high hopes on it considering the fact that they promised the same thing with Resident Evil 6 but ultimately failed to do so. The game failed to offer us any suspense and hair-raising moments overall.
If we as gamers were in the shoes of the game developer, our idea would have been to bring back the old enemies. Yes, as we mentioned earlier, we are talking about William Birkin and Nemesis from the earlier Resident Evil titles.
Both of these villains have proven themselves to be extremely terrifying beings and if they are shown in a surprise boss fight in Resident Evil 7, it will definitely lead to something pretty horrifying.
All Resident Evil gamers miss the horror ways which once existed in Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3 and gamers are finally hoping that Capcom will offer something which is similar to Resident Evil 7. This is a pretty good idea to be considered, if Capcom is planning to make the Resident Evil franchise great again.
