Recently revealed Resident Evil 6 is the largest production ever undertaken by publisher Capcom, according to the title’s executive producer.

Hiroyuki Kobayashi revealed on an introduction video about the announcement trailer that over 600 people are involved in the production of RE6, 150 of whom are at Capcom’s headquarters in Japan:

Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said that RE6 “not only has a larger world and deeper experience than you have played before but we are excited to say it is a blend of action and survival horror – something we like to call ‘dramatic horror’.”

Director Eiichiro Sasaki added that the story is “intricately designed” and has “intense drama, realism and surprising plot twists.”

Before RE6, which is out this November, Capcom’s largest project was the upcoming adventure game Dragon’s Dogma.
