Rumour: Resident Evil 6 to be unveiled at Tokyo Game Show

Wednesday, 14th September 2011 15:41 GMT By Staff

EGM’s reporting that Resident Evil 6 will finally get its bow at TGS this week.

Speaking to an anonymous source, the site’s man in the shadows said the series will “go back to its roots” with a revamp, and the main priority will be to make “what made Resident Evil so great to begin with.”

Its source added that Capcom was placing a “real emphasis” on making the game “brutally scary.”

The publisher’s unsurprisingly stayed mum on the rumour.

“Capcom has not made any announcements [about Resident Evil 6] and does not comment on rumors,” it said.

This isn’t the fist time a rumor pertaining to a TGS reveal of RE6 has surfaced.

Back in July, a picture posted on the HellDecent forums showed what appeared to be a Resident Evil 6 logo revealed during a closed door press conference at San Diego Comic-Con.

Along with the logo, a date of “15.09.2011″ appeared on the screen above.

During E3, a Capcom representative hinted to Rely on Horror the series would be going back to its horror roots with the next installment.

Finally, back in August, a LinkedIn profile for CG artist Shannon Justison listed “Resident Evil 6 Cinematics” as one of the projects she had worked on.

Capcom’s holding a 15th Anniversary stage show for the series at TGS on Saturday morning at 7.10am BST/2.10am EST.

If it is getting unveiled at the show, this’ll be most likely the venue.

    Let’s hope it has nothing to do with Resident Evil 5.

    ^ Agreed (with slight correction). Let’s hope it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with RE5..

    So glad to hear the rumors Capcom is “taking the series back to it’s roots”

    Resident Evil 5 wasn’t that bad. It was a solid game, but yes, it was definitely a step back for the series. Although I have to give it credit technically, because the graphics in that game were amazing.

    It’s biggest downfall was the co-op, that needs to GTFO of Resident Evil.

    all capcom need to do is keep the thrid person view on resident evil 5 and not have COOP and make it more then 8 hours long and make it scary and you have a masterpiece, dont get me wrong resident evil 1, 2 and 3 are good but they were only good at the time, if they release it like the first 3 the game will be shockingly terrible

    I’m ready for whatever…I’ve only played Resident Evil 5 all the way through and I enjoyed it but I’ve dabbled in RE4 and RE2 also…definitely buying RE4 from GoD when it comes out this month (if its still on schedule)…

    resident evil 5 was better as a 3rd person shooter than as a survival horror game

    I have 0 interest in another RE game, all of them sucks (new ones) and aren’t a RE game IMO, they just carry the title but nothing left of the things I liked in RE games.

    @10 its called evolution dude…the video games market is bigger than ever so they try to mass market the games to all types of players to get the most people buying their game…its a business like anything else, while it may alienate some hardcore fans that look down upon those changes, eventually those people still pick the game up and if they don’t…its a much smaller loss than all the casual/mass market players you would lose by making a hardcore old school survival horror title…plus they are supposedly making one more focused on the survival horror titles that you’re obviously a fan since you cared enough to post your opinion on the subject…

    So I say we all wait for a reveal and see what they got

    …about the reveal…wasn’t it supposed to be on 9/15/11?…its 2:30am on the 16th in Tokyo so I guess that’s not happening unless it happens tonight and that teaser in the closed press conference was referring to it being 9/15 in the West when it will be revealed but its not looking like it…
