Capcom hasn't outright announced Resident Evil 6 (the lack of a teaser at E3 was interesting), but despite some noted controversy, Resident Evil 5 was a success for the company. A sequel is inevitable. Who will be in charge of the next Resident Evil, however, remains a mystery. 4Gamer reports it won't be Jun Takeuchi, producer of both Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2.
"I'm not involved in Resident Evil 6," he said. "There's actually a number of things I want to do."
Deciding who should lead Resident Evil forward has been a source of stress for Takeuchi.
"As for the future of the main Resident Evil series," said Takeuchi to me during a Comic-Com interview last year, "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."
Maybe we'll hear at Tokyo Game Show. Resident Evil 6 and The Last Guardian updates? Ooh.
