There will be another Resident Evil, but Capcom still hasn't decided who should head up the next installment. At Comic-Con, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi revealed several producers were playing blackjack to determine who was saddled with the responsibility of the next Resident Evil. At GamesCom, however, Takeuchi told Billy Berghammer that's not working.
"There are three candidates and we've been playing blackjack for a long time in order to pick the role of producer for the next one," he said, "but we haven’t decided yet. So, we have to switch to something else – poker or something. Blackjack was not working."
Since the release of Resident Evil 5, Takeuchi has expressed exhaustion over the game's development and a desire to let someone else take the helm.
"It’s [Resident Evil] a great project to work on," he said, "but it’s really, really hard."
