Capcom has presented its financial results. Street Fighter V has sold more of 1.4 million copies, but the news is not about the numbers, is about the speculation about Resident Evil.
The Capsule Corporation has hinted new Resident Evil products for the second half of the year (fiscal year that ends in March 2017). Please, read the following except extracted from the financial document presented by Capcom about Resident Evil series:
And “Resident Evil Umbrella Corps” (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the “Resident Evil” series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as warm up to the full-scale offensive planned for the second half of the year.
Of course, Capcom is hinting something. Resident Evil 7 could be part of that “full-scale offensive”. Resident Evil 2 Remake has its chances, but I suppose Capcom will commercialize the game to coincide with the 20th anniversary of that chapter in 2018.
If Resident Evil comes back with a big iteration (Umbrella Corps is aside from that definition), Capcom should unveil something at E3 2016.
