New Resident Evil To Be Revealed At Spike VGAs?

We'll see the unveiling of a previously unannounced title at the Spike VGAs on December 11 - followed by that mystery PS3 exclusive reveal on the 12th - and it seems one source has the VGA answer.

According to GamerZines, the unknown game will be a new Resident Evil iteration, possibly the one in the works at one-time SOCOM developer, Slant Six. The "Zombie Teaser" has a Biohazard symbol attached, so that's one piece of evidence and the second is the zombie silhouette they have circled in red in the teaser vid:

"Take a look at the second image, a print from a T-shirt which is part of the official Resident Evil merchandise. Same pose, same zombie. Not only that, but the other zombie that appears in the teaser is also on the shirt design, only facing the other way."

So yeah, if you put two and two together; i.e., the same zombie silhouettes from an official RE t-shirt appearing in a VGA teaser for a zombie-related game. We know Resident Evil 6 is in the works but there's that previously mentioned unconfirmed RE in development at Slant Six, so...hard to say what to expect at this point. But let's say, for the sake of argument, that it's a different type of Resident Evil; maybe a departure of some kind.

What might it be like...?

What ever happened to that Resident Evil PSP game? Did Capcom cancel it?

I love tentacle hentai, only when it's raping cute anime girls, not beating you to death.

1) Just remove the goddamn bright sun
2) Decrease the speed of the enemies
3) Let them wield weapons like retards instead of like a normal dude
4) I want them to moan like they're hungry, not scream like a guy
5) WALK LIKE ZOMBIES.....no wait, more like PUT THE ZOMBIES BACK INTO THE GAME
6) Environment to be dark and scary, Demon's Souls is one of the better example AND IT'S NOT A HORROR GAME

They do all that and I'll buy it even if the game scores a 7 out of 10, there's no problem with the tank control, it is a horror game after all.
But RE5 took horror formula and mixed it with action.

Oh for Pete's sake just dump it on Ninja Theory and call it dead. :P

But seriously, like everyone else says it's time to take this series back to its roots and make it scary. Take the characters off steroids (Or gimme new characters, these are played out) and come up with an actual story.

I refuse to get my hopes up. I want a "Classic" new RE more than that ff7 remake. But seeing as how capcom is in the same boat as SE I have my reservations. But I can still hope right??

I haven't touched an RE game since 4. If they go announcing RE6 at VGA I'm going to have some catching up to do.

DAM!
so its not L4D3?
:(
hoping it was seeing i have not been able to play one since L4D2 got banned, was hoping L4D3 would release.
surely that wont get banned, because, well splatterhouse got through and that is the most sadistic, twisted, gory, f*cked up sh*t i have ever played!
even worse than manhunt!
some of the sh*t the mask says could only possibly come out of a homicidal maniac!

I loved Resident Evil 5 right up to the part when I said: Stuff it...

This is a poor mans Uncharted/Dead Space with crap controls so off to the trade in heaven in the sky.

Being a big RE fan for the 10 or so years I have this to say, unless this game is a reboot and the series is being returned to its past glory instead of the crap we've been handed the last 2 game(sorry but they sucked), CAPCOM should just put the series to rest. If they want to keep going in the direction they've gone, create a new series called "non-zombie action game" or whatever. Stop tarnishing the good name that is Resident Evil.

Just my 2 cents

That's right buddy you tell 'em, but seriously though I like how you tell a company what to do with there own product I just find it kinda funny.

It may be Capcom's product, but he is the customer. Customer is always right, or so I've heard.

I seem to remember an outcry to Cole's new look for Infamous 2. And guess who listened to their customers? That's right, Sucker Punch.

Maybe Capcom could stand to listen to their customers for a change.

I'm gonna have to agree with everybody that says guve me a reboot. If this new re is gonna be any good give me something like jill or chris running down a poorley lit room and about halfway down a dog jumps through the window effectivley making one mess their pants. Or give me something like leon taking a turn down a corridor and a licker dropping from the celing. I don't want anymore of this shoot the heads off zombies only to havve what looks like and alien squid pop out of the neck and hit you with its axe like tenticles. I miss the days when re was scary as hell and you had barely any ammo so you had to make the decision " hey do I wanna play it safe and run past these guys or take as many down as possible and hope for the best?" I played re4 because it had leon who was my favorite re character. But the gameplay was nothing like an re. I want real zombies on monsters from the movie slither. Give me shuffeling moaning reach out and take a chucnk out of your neck zombies. Than ill be more than happy to play another re game. Nothing from re4 or 5 was any close to as creepy than your first zombie encounter in re directers cut. You know the one, when you walk into the room ands stumble upon something eating one of your fellow stars members. And then slowley it stands up and turns around with blood smeared on its face from having just made a manwich of your comrad. That's what we want in an re game.am I right?

Dreno,
Just as a public service,
I'd love to read what ever you've posted in the treads so far, but when you have a big post like the one you made above & then keep it all compacted like that, it becomes hard on the eye & I'm sure a lot of other readers here will agree.

So if you cut any big posts into a few separate paragraphs, I for one, would be glad to read what ever you post.

Bring back Sheva (Claire as a bonus) and I might buy it.

Though this'll probably be another action-zombie game and not a survival horror game. *shrug*

I know what you mean bikersaint. Every time I post I mean to use paragraphs, I really do, but ill get so excited about sharing my view on subjects that I like that I forget to do paragraphs, so that's my bad.

So next time I post ( from now on anyways ) ill try to remeber to do paragraphs and not get so excited about getting to share my views. And I understand how a big mess like my upper comment can be a stran on peoples eyes. I wear glasses to read and I wouldn't want to read a mess like that.

So for you and everyone else ill use proper post eticate from now on. And just incase this sounds sarcastic, I don't mean it to. I agree with you 100%. Thanks !
