Capcom Producer: Resident Evil Reboot Is Possible
In an interview about the upcoming Resident Evil: Revelations port for consoles and PCs, producer Masachika Kawata said that the Resident Evil horror franchise might receive a reboot to accommodate an "open-world" approach.
"If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players," Kawata stated. "It would almost entail having a slight reboot to get the series into a place where it would work with open-world gameplay. That's just a personal opinion. A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that...there is a possibility."
However, the wait for an "open-world" Resident Evil game is still far into the future.
