A few interesting facts regarding Resident Evil 7

  • The game is definitely in development
  • It will be shown at E3
  • The game will return to its horror/survival roots
  • Jordan Amaro (MGS5, P.T) has been hired to work on the project.

The leaks came in the form of 2 tweets from Dr. Serkan Toto, the CEO of a Japanese based gaming consultant.

Whether or not these leaks are legitimate, remains to be seen however the propect of a ‘soft reboot’ for the series is rather promising. RE6 was released in 2012 to rather negative response, with many fans of the series regarding it as the weakest title in the franchise to date. A return to the PS1 era survival horror style of gameplay could be just what the series needs to get back on its feet.

I guess we will just have to wait til E3.
