Next Resident Evil May Be “Very Different From Resident Evil 7 in Some Ways,” Says Producer
Titled The House That Jack Built, the fourth and final Making Of video for Resident Evil 7 was released today by Capcom. “In this episode, explore how the team had to rethink about the Survival-Horror genre and how hard they worked on making the game as realistic as possible,” the description says.
Beginning at the 8:00 mark, Executive Producer Jun Takeuchi discusses the development of Resident Evil 7, and even provides hints about future titles in the franchise:
We want this title to be the start of a new kind of survival horror and of a new series. We’re already thinking about various plans for the next game, but we also want to see how we can continue to evolve survival horror itself.
In the next few years, technology will continue to advance and what players want may also change, but we will always want to create horror experiences where the characters overcome a difficult situation. That, to me, is what survival horror is all about, and the next Resident Evil game and the one after that, every future Resident Evil, will feature characters getting through crises like this.
And so the current masterpiece is just the beginning. Plans for the next title are already in motion and, when you see that game, you may find that it is very different from Resident Evil 7 in some ways, while still retaining that core survival horror concept of people overcoming the odds. Resident Evil will always retain that essence.
