Wesker voice actor calls out Capcom on RE6 casting

Wednesday, 26th January 2011 07:03 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Albert Wesker voice actor DC Douglas has called out Capcom to cast him again in the role for Resident Evil 6.

“Hell yeah! I know RE6 is in the works, so hopefully I’ll get a chance to audition for it… or you guys could bug Capcom into casting me in it!” he told Hell Descent in an interview when asked if he was interested in returning to the role.

Douglas, however, clarified his comment on knowing a sequel was in the works, saying it was based on internet speculation and not first-hand info.

That said, you would have to be a bit soft to bet against RE6.

Before leaving the company last October, Capcom R&D boss Keiji Inafune told a Spanish site that info would start coming “shortly” just before last year’s TGS.

The event passed without any official news on the game.

Douglas’s comment comes as Capcom dev boss Jun Takeuchi said this morning that the publisher would announce two new, original games by this summer.

Takeuchi, who was producer of the last main title released in the series, Resident Evil 5 in 2009, will play no part in the game’s production this time.

    The RE series is getting stale …. could be due to the overload of RE games, movies & a ton of other zombie apocalypse stuff.

    Better if Capcom takes it sweet time for RE6 …. achieve something like the immense improvement from RE3 to RE4.

    Besides, it looks like Dead Space will be king of the hill now & the near future.

    Jimfear, that is a spoiler, good sir.

    Wesker is back? Looks like RE story isn’t interesting when it comes to wesker and stuff. Sad.

    Wesker in RE6!? No chance!

    *** SPOILER ALERT ***
    I personally killed Wesker in RE5, multiple times.
    I saw him die with my own eyes, for heaven’s sake!

    Clones. T-Virus replicants laying around somewhere waiting to be animated….sounds like a Resident Evil plot to me.
    Might include him in the story as reference also….never know. RE6 could also be a side story like, What were Leon, Clare Redfield, or Rebecca Chambers doing during the time of RE5 and if Wesker is included in their story also.

    I thuroughly enjoyed RE5 and am looking forward to RE6. RE5 was great single player and Co-Op fun.
