Resident Evil publisher Capcom has something major to show at E3 2014, according to rumours out of Japan.


According to Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbum, as translated on NeoGAF, Capcomis bringing “a major game of some sort for the PS4” at E3 2014 in June.

While this might be expected to be a localisation of Deep Down, Capcom’s Japan-only free-to-play PS4 exclusive, the paper hints that it might be Resident Evil 7.

The theory comes in contrast to an earlier rumour that the next Resident Evil game would be an Xbox One exclusive, following on from the success of Dead Rising 3.

Capcom has said that the next Resident Evil game will return to the franchise’s roots; although Resident Evil 6 sold 5.6 million units, it didn’t meet Capcom’s own expectations, and the publisher was unhappy with its critical reception.
