Even though Resident Evil 5 was just released, people always want to know what's next. That's common amongst games writers and even more common amongst the guys and girls who populate Comic-Con. During Capcom's lineup panel this afternoon, a fan asked about the future of Resident Evil.
Unfortunately, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi didn't have much an answer for him because a producer for the next major Resident Evil hasn't been decided.
"As for the future of the main Resident Evil series," said Takeuchi, "right now pretty much every day myself, [Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles producer Masachika Kawata] and another producer at Capcom Japan are playing blackjack to decide who is going to be stuck with the responsibility with making the next episode in the series."
Takeuchi did admit it's looking likely neither himself nor Kawata would be in charge of Resident Evil 6 or whatever the next game is called. Other than that, he said, "can't really say that much at this time."
Who would you want to take over Resident Evil?
