Capcom has big plans for its Resident Evil series, according to its most recent financial results.
Capcom released a new financial results report earlier today, which included a number of items such as how well Street Fighter 5 sold, as well as mention of a “full-scale offensive” regarding the Resident Evil series.
Capcom says the release of Resident Evil Umbrella Corps, which is releasing on June 21 in North America, will serve as a “warm up” to this full-scale offensive that’s planned for the series in the second half of 2016.
Given Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 are scheduled to release this Fall, we have a feeling this media blitz will have more to do with those titles than an unannounced “new” Resident Evil game. We also know Resident Evil 2 Remake is currently in development, so we could be hearing more about that as well later this year.
