A couple of updates dropped for everyone’s favorite franchise, Resident Evil, this morning.
First off, great job guys, we did it! The “Zombie Mayhem” online event has been completed, which means you now have access to the snazzy retro skins for your characters. Didn’t get a chance to partake in the event? That’s okay! The next event, “Neutralize the Threat“, starts tomorrow and is achieved once the world has slaughtered 30,000 Orgromen by February 8th. Let’s get on it!
Last order of business, is Resident Evil getting a reboot? Series producer Masachika Kawata said the franchise might need a “slight reboot” after the disappointing sales and reception from RE:6. The interviewer hinted at open-world, (please no…) but Capcom seems to already have a pretty good idea of where to take the series next. With the re-release of Resident Evil: Revelations coming in May, Capcom will be measuring this title’s success very closely and it may have more of an impact on the future of the franchise than we first thought.
