After the critically and financial mess that was Resident Evil 6, it’s no secret Capcom went back to reconsider just how to tackle the next installment for the now 20-year-old series. A Tokyo-based analyst by the name of Dr. Serkan Toto tweeted that the game is set to be shown at this year’s E3 Event, also stating:
1) About Resident Evil 7: Yes, it’s in development. The entire game will go back to RE’s horror roots and (essentially) be a clean slate.
2) They will show it at E3. The RE7 team hired Jordan Amaro, a designer who previously worked on MGS V and P. T. at Kojima Productions. /end

By what we read in Mr. Toto’s tweet, it’s likely the developers reverted themselves in taking the series back to Resident Evil main lore of Horror/Action genre. Let’s just hope Capcom gives us a Resident Evil game that’s worth the thrill and excitement it once was.
