Resident Evil Creator Won't Be Involved With RE6

Shinji Mikami is best known for creating one of the industry's most groundbreaking franchises: Resident Evil.

But he's now at Platinum Games and has removed himself from Capcom. Furthermore, according to what he told VideoGamer, he'll be "keeping his distance" from the upcoming Resident Evil 6. In fact, he says that no matter how it turned out, he'd just end up being frustrated:

"At the moment I'm nothing to do with that title, and don't know what's going on with it. I haven't heard any voices from users, so I can't really comment on that. I'm trying not to actively seek out any information about that title, because even if it comes out a good game, there will always be some moments where I think 'oh, I would have done that differently - I would have done this bit better'. Good or bad it will be frustrating either way. So I'm trying to shut myself down from that project."

Well, he may not have time these days, anyway. Platinum is working to close out Vanquish, which is due out in less than a month, and Mikami also revealed he has teamed up with Killer 7 and No More Heroes designer Suda 51 to bring us Shadows of the Damned. That, and there are whispers of a sequel to this year's titillating action extravaganza, Bayonetta. But anyway, RE6 didn't show up at the Tokyo Game Show this year and when it does hit the limelight, the mind behind the original won't be around.

Jawknee will LOVE this news!! /sarc/

But it does make you wonder if RE will become anything more than a walk-in-the-park undead shoot-em-up.

Resident Evil 5 was CRAP compared to previous entries.

Now, instead of a new RE, give us a collection!! RE4 HD would ROCK!

I really don't care where RE goes after the crap-fest 5 was. I am way interested in Shadows of the Damned though. I think anyone who rides a motorcycle should have the chance to go to hell and kill the sh%& out of some demons. I might be a bit biased though.

Anyway, yeah Harley riders, in a general sense, are complete a$$holes who will either turn their head as you ride by them or look straight ahead like they don't see you wave. Not all are like that though. Some are cool guys.

Coverton,

<<<<<anyone who rides a motorcycle should have the chance to go to hell and kill the sh%& out of some demons.>>>>

Somebody rang my bell?
I've been known to shot the sh%% out a few demons right here above...er...never mind....
"I plead the 5th Amendment"

Anyway, to change subjects, I should get a tee-shirt with my Demon Dog's full sized pic with the following caption...

"I've been to Hell & back, and I got to show for it was Lucifer's pet".

FYI, I'm not to far from the Atlantic City N.J. area, but was in W. Covina & Santa Monica for short bits in the 70's.

And I seriously doubt you could make it in just 3 days though, cause last time I drove by car, it took 4 days non-stop with 3 of us each taking 8 hour shifts driving down I-80, stopping only for quickie gasoline, food, & bathroom breaks.

On a bike, you'd have to pull over to sleep at the very least 2 nights or you'd wind up killing yourself as the fatigue would cause you to dull your senses so much, you could wind up killing yourself.

Funny story about that trip out West trip by car though.....to top everything off, we managed to burn up the rings running non-stop ball-aSS "pedal to the metal" all the way to Cali & the car started poring white smoke out the tailpipe just as we entered L.A.city limits & we wound up being pulled over 8 time in the first hour for creating smog. Seeing how we had New Jersey plates & just got into town, we only got 8 air pollution warning tickets. So we just would up junking that old heap of a Rambler Nash

A for the type of rider I am, I'm an old school biker(think of old style "dominate" club types), all about the old school values of trust, honesty, loyalty & taking no bullsh!t. It all boils down to one single solitary word.... "RESPECT".
I can be someone's best bud, but lie to me once or think they can "F" over me, then they'll really find out why my brother's gave me the sarcastic nickname of "Saint".
BTW, I'll wave to any biker, and will stop to lend a hand & tools for a biker that broke down.
But I usually won't wave to or bother with most crotch rocket riders, around here most of them are immature 18 t0 20 something, a-holes that showboat, by going 80 in first gear on their very first bike, &/or doing wheelies & stoppies in traffic is way cool. Plus most of them don't know the word respect, never mind trying to even spell it.

I also don't get along with phony bikers, weekend biker wannabe poser's, or the RUB's who only bought their bike to just show off as a status symbol, parking it in their over sized driveway, right next to their Beemer, yacht, and Leer jet.

But those phony's will get a quick lesson in "attitude adjustment" training if they act the a$$ or show disrespect anywhere near us, because with us, our bikes are us. Our bike's are living breathing extension of ourselves, it is our soul, it is our lifestyle, just as my club is my way of life.
Other than that, nahhh, I'm(usually) just as harmless as your average teddy bear, LMFAO

Hey LV,
No, I haven't seen it, so send me the link please.

BTW, the USPS snail mail must be as frigging slow this week as "molasses in January" cause I thought I would have already received your package either Thurs or Fri, but nothing yet. Hopefully it will be here to day, 7 frigging.
days after you mailed it out.
Will keep ya posted, & should be sending mine out to ya early this week.

Ya, it would be cool if they made a RE2.5 which explained the gap between RE2 and RE4. There are so many things Capcom can do with this series, I hope they learned a thing or two from DeadSpace and go back to the series beginnings with the next RE.

I actually loved RE5 and it easily became my second favorite in the series, behind RE2. the only thing I could do without is the tag team aspect -- survival horror games are always better if it's just you, not with a teammate -- and the quick time events. I liked the tank-like controls of RE still, 'cause it makes for some pretty tense moments, but I would prefer something more akin to Dead Space for the next RE. Dead Space out did RE5 in the horror/scare aspects, that's for sure.

But I still liked the game a lot.

I dunno.

The problem with RE5 is it didn't know what it was. Action or Horror, Gears or Resident Evil. The game was a disaster in my opinion. Easlily the biggest dissapointment for me this generation. I followed this game very closely before release. We were supposed to see things like light, shadow and heat play a major roll. They promised scares and in the end they stripped it all out, turned it into a halfass action game with zero fright and a whole lot of Fail.

And what the hell were they thinking turning Wesker into Neo?

The way I see this is even though the big Japanese game publishers have lost their way, being both confused and allured by western success, it is not as if the Japanese have entirely given up on developing proper eastern inspired games.

It looks as though many are just as frustrated as we are and are willing to leave behind their cherished series in order to pursue proper Japanese inspired, and successful, games.

Shame in one fell swoop Capcom ruined Mikami's Resident Evil Legacy. Without him Capcom or Resident Evil will never be the same.

Oh well, maybe Gears of Evil 6 will turn out better than 5.

I didn't play 5, but it didn't look that terrible, except for all the inventory management with two people, and AI partners always seem to suck. I'm not going to write 6 off just yet. Who knows, they might decide to make some sort of horror game out of it again. I mean, it's possible.

Please shams that part of the world and their culture still lives in the 7th century and you don't need YouTube to understand that. Im not going to debate you about your religion but your denying the obvious when you act as if there isn't a very, very, very large segment of your fellow religious believers who are making the world worse and a much less safe place for us all it makes if hard to take you seriously. Where ever there is a problem with terrorism or oppression, 95% of the times coming from Arabs states and theocratic regimes who claim they are doing it in the name of Allah.

I have debated Muslims from this site in the forums and I was surprised(though I suppose I shouldn't be)at what they were willing to admit they would do to gays, woman and non muslims because their "holy Quran" told them too. People who have commented here in the past, who seemed like reasonable people were willing to admit they would be ok with hanging a homosexual because Allah forbids homosexual acts. We don't need to visit Iran or Afghanistan to know they are oppressive hell holes. One of my best friends is an Iraqi and she tells me all the time what horrors were committed against her and her fellow Christians in her homeland simply for being Christian. Not good enough? I have a Christian friend who had to flee indonesia because her town would get raided and plundered, people beaten and murdered in the name of Allah. This was just less than 10 years ago. There is a problem in that part of the world and it all has one common thread.

Look, I have no problem with you, or what religion you believe in. You don't advocate terrorism or any f the horrorific acts committed in your religions name, but you gotta wake mang and realize there is something seriously wrong with too many muslims today. Not all of them are terrorists but too many of them are and it's a problem not just for the US but for the poor people living under this tyranny.

Look up pictures of what Iran used to looks like before the "Iranian revolution.". They were free and didn't look a whole lot different than we did in the 70s before the Islamic take over. Now gays are hung, woman are stoned to death and men are flogged for drinking alcohol. Also, the supreme leader just banned music for being unislamic. You know that?

Actually I never said one has to fully complete a particular subject matter in order to comment on it. I said one should invest some time in the subject matter if they wish to engage in a serious conversation on it.

Thankfully there are books and movies to help educate people on things such as different cultures, and places not within one's travel distance. Nice try though with your weak a$$ defense.

I think it's great that France has officially banned Burkas and I also think it's great that you never disprove anything I say but rather ask if I'm drunk or claim I'm ignorant.

@Shams
After studying various religions, the one thing that separates Christianity from other religions is the theme of 'love'. At the time, Christ (whether you believe him to be the son of God or not is irrelevant) taught a radical faith about love. And he wasn't a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. He hung out with the dregs of society trying to better the lives of the people who suffered.

Other religions, including Islam, seem to have founders that hang out with people in power. Christ was the son of a carpenter... and he had no political power. Something very unique in the world of religion.

These simple facts alone, nevermind many others, separate Christianity apart from religions like Islam.

Besides, anything is believable so long as it's got at least PART truth involved.

Anyways, I will say no more, because I believe video game forums are absolutely NO place for religious discussions. Feel free to PM me in the forums if you wish to have a discussion or get some of my thoughts.

Underdog, I'd very much like to have an intellectual discussion with you concerning such topics. The problem is (as I'm sure that you can sense a history between those other two and myself) this isn't the appropriate place to do it as past has proven. If you open up a section in the forum (with Ben's permission of course), I'm sure we can have intellectual discussion in an adult manner (as your past comments have proven).

Oops. Just caught your invitation at the end of your comment. And I will take you up on it.

But isn't this strange, I did not even bring up religion in this section. Everytime those two, have an exchange of words with myself (game-related or not), than I am branded the terrorist...not that i really think so that they actually think that, because otherwise they'd sooner report me to the FBI than engaging in these discussions (if you can call them that).

I've learned over time, they are people who are able to engage in intellectual and respectful discussions, and there are other people who feign intellectuality as a means to veil their trash-talk, and in reality, they care nothing for all the suffering of mankind (which they selectively, one-sidedly mention many times to exhort an often imaginary audience), as they're agenda is simply a selfish one, denigrating others to validate and exalt themselves...the surest sign of insecurity.

Because of your mature and polite demeanor, I will PM you.

Then you proceeded to troll him with your idiotic comparison to what he was saying about playing RE5 before commenting about it with this idiotic notion that one must visit another country in order to form an opinion about it and their culture. THAT is the reason I brought your excuse making for a premative culture.

Second of all you obviously didn't read a word I wrote since your accusing me of branding you a terrorist. WHICH I DIDN'T! Intact I went as far as tellig you I don't believe you are a terrorist or advocate terrorist acts but some how you managed to miss that. No wonder your reponses were so childish and weak.

I have never had a problem with you personally, I still don't but for some reason you try to turn this into some stupid personal vendetta and play the victim as if I or LV have it out for you when clearly your just feeling sorry for yourself because you got your a$$ handed to you....again!

You wouldn't dare say that to his face, but you're probably a lonely geek sat behind a computer veil that makes you feel important. You utter bigot. I would of knocked you the f*ck out if you said anything like that around me.

Him interpreting you as a miserable person, doesn't deserve such embarrassing and disgraceful comments on his faith? Do you have mental problems?
You're probably one of those twats that dogged any middle eastern person you saw after 9/11 along with jawknee. An uneducated fool.

There is so much fail in your comment I don't even know where to begin. The name calling and empty threats makes your whole comment and arguement worthless and proves what a coward you are.

But I digress, enough is enough. We don't need to poison this thread any further with your infinite wisdom Prince.

Lotus spoke up when no else was willing to. What he did was quite the opposite of cowardice.

And pardon me for counting you along with that buddy of yours (LV). I admit to having ignored your comment initially, because I saw you followed suit with him (bringing up religion when the two of you had nothing else to bring up, in a traditional fashion), attacking me about things i have no part in, in response to my remarks about what he has done and continues to do.

If you truly wished to have a discussion with me, instead of just making an ostentatious spectacle, perhaps you would've PM'ed, or invited me to a forum to discuss valid and legitimate concerns, instead of timing it with a vicious flaming-contest.

Your comment was more diplomatically worded this time, but your intentions are plainly known to me.

Lotus,

I was here to talk about RE5, he chose to derail the thread and I was more than willing to put him in his place. Who the hell are you to say what I know and don't know regarding a religion? If it makes you sleep better at night I'm against all religion and the poison it plagues our society with. I would most definitely say what I think to his face and anyone else that has a belief system based on nothing more than a false hope pipedream.


Oh and you're right I am a geek, with two degrees: Information Systems and Accounting and I love to game, so what? Aren't you also here on a gaming site posting comments. Get of the high horse and actually attack me in some way that might come across as a negative thing.

Ah I see Shams, great logic. Because I'm against religion and stick up for my beliefs (based on actual evidence rather than HOPE) I must not care for anything other than videogames. You continue to suggest I'm ignorant for slandering your faith since evidently I know nothing about it (even though I do) but it's okay for you to make false assumptions about me with ZERO evidence to back it up.

Go ahead, continue to not defend your religion at all but rather nitpick me on my "attitude" and I'll continue to read the next moronic comment from you.


Oh and this conversation is officially over, it gets tiresome talking to a person that never adds anything to the conversation other than "you're mean", "you're a jerk, "You disagree with me, you must be an uneducated fool". I know it will continue down the road again though since you have a habit of stalking me on here and attempting to have the conversations you say you wish not to have.

Resident Evil 5 wasn't a terrible game, but I was expecting to at least jump a little and didn't even get that. Ergo disappointment. I think that 6 will be stripped down even further, although hopefully they've still got enough collective brain cells rattling around at Capcom to make it a single player game and not shelve us with an AI partner that uses a pistol when you give her a damn machine gun.

Honestly, I'm more interested in REPSP. Not only does the control layout lend itself better to the 'tank controls', but the portable could definitely be used to emphasise frights. Incidentally, has there been any news on that since last year's E3?
Peace.

RE 5 was the only one I never even bothered completing. And the only one I ever traded in. I still got all launch copies D1P's, except my original DVD box style case for 1 was ruined so I don't have the original casing anymore. 5 was not a RE game to me, don't have the outbreak games now that I think of it tried the 1st not the 2nd though which I heard was better.

I still have all the old copies, mine aren't all the D1Ps but I got them all on eBay. And lately i've been beating the dead horse about how great the Outbreaks were. No they weren't part of the main story but they do still tell an important part of it. I always thought of them as pseudo beta for gameplay evolution, then they dropped RE4 on us.

I'm playing RE5 now, while it isn't much of and RE, like FFXIII isn't much of an FF, it still isn't a bad game you know. I don't like babysitting, and the tank controls are stuck in between survival horror and action, but I don't think it's as bad as everyone says.

That said, look forward to World being your premiere source of hate towards any attempt at a Bayonaise 2.

Ya I noticed you were playing the other night. I even made the effort to make fun of you via a PSN msg which you smartly ignored.

RE5 in a nutshell:
Terrible Story
Terrible Boss Battles
Terrible forced Co-op
Terrible item management
Terrible controls
Terrible characters (Chris on roids)
Terrible SP gametime, comparable to MW2.

I for one liked Bayonetta and am playing it on my 360 and will likely get part 2 if they make it. I did not however enjoy RE5 for all the reasons stated by LV plus the fact that Shiva looks like a prostitute in her alt.

Now LV, while I didn't think RE5 was all it could be, it's not as bad as you're making out there. I for one enjoyed the refreshing, slowed down controls and some of the boss battles, the U-8(?) in particular. While the story and characters weren't great, they got the job done, particularly as RE is known for its out there and campy style. Also, my playthrough of it took me, I think, close to eleven hours, so I got enough out of it. Oh and, great graphics. How has Capcom managed to consistently nail the graphics but stuff up almost everything else this gen?

But yeah, everything else you mentioned was about right.

Just kidding bout DS.

No I didn't know about a less buggy way, so it got pretty messed up during the DLC. But I just finished em all so that won't be necessary unless I play em again.

I only liked Point Lookout and Broken Steel, the others were pretty lame.

sheesh I think RE5 took me like 12 hours to beat, i dont really rememebr but I remeber it being long.

In fact about the 2nd or 3rd night playing it with a friend whos roomate had beat it. He said we only have about 6 hours left well that 6 hours came and passed. the next night he said we got 2 hours left, well 6 hours later we beat it lol so thats over 12 hours just in that time period. I dont know maybe we took our time compared to most others.

I've been been searching the web like crazy for RE6 info. All i got was that its gonna be series reboot. That scares the crap out of me while at the same time excites me because:

a) It will be remade as a complete action game and b) I hope it will be a faithful remake in the engine of RE 4 & 5 but still be survival horror. Hell, even if they used the engine from the Outbreak Series I'd be happy.

i never got into the RE series til i got a wii and got the wii edition of that game and man i fall in love with that game so for me RE 4 is the best in the series, RE 5 just sucked compared to RE 4. also RE 6 should take a que from dead space since that is the best in horror/survival.

also speaking of dead space can not wait for part 2 day 1 buy hands down

I agree with World. RE5 is a failure as a RE game, but if you just treat it as a shooting gallery it can be good fun, especially in co-op.

What really grates is that the Lost in Nightmares DLC demonstrated that Capcom are still able to create some fine creepy old school Resi Evil, dripping with atmosphere and imaginative game design. Was that the same team and producer? Anyway's Capcom, more of that stuff please.

I'm guessing that Resi Evil 6 will pick up the Clare Redfield story - maybe she tries to rescue Steve Burnside from being a monster. The Revelations game on 3DS looks very interesting

Ok I'm probably nowhere near as critical over RE5. As a game I found I enjoyed it and the one annoyance was definitely the forced co-op as LV mentioned. I'm not massively skilled at RE so having to look after another character as well as myself made for some frustrating times.

this is news?
he said that hes having nothing to do with RE6 ages ago, before RE5 was out!
anyway, he feels the exact same way i do, no matter what capcom do with the series it will still suck.
there more concerned in westernizing their games to sell more copies, than putting in the effort to make sure the fans are happy and its a fantastic game!
look at the DMC remake, they could not give a royal rats a$$ fans are not happy with it, all they care is that it brings in the $$$$$, just like $E all they care about is $$$$.

tis whats wrong with the games industry these days, that and games are rated on technological sides and not entertainment.
gone are the days games were made for a passion, not for a cash cow.
and gone are the days where games were made as a form of entertainment, now developers could not care less if there games as boring and repetitive as bat sh*t as long as it a technological masterpiece their happy.

Whatever, Biohazard may turn into a third person shooter for all I care - even Mikami-san doesn't care anymore.

The last Bio I bought was number 5, 'coz it introduced new mechanics and was, as a pure action game, excellent after all.

Biohazard 4 is still my favorite, even visually it's still stunning (GCN version, not PS2/PC) and I enjoyed each of my 10 play-throughs or so.

Without Mikami it will never be the same after all, and I honestly doubt it will return to its survival-horror roots.

As Jawky already mentioned, with Capcom owning the IP, we may soon hear that "RE needs a fresh western touch, so Epic games will handle the development of RE6, as they've finished work on Gears3". Or BS like that.
