Last week, MarcaPlayer.com, a Spanish video game news site caught up with Capcom producer, Masachika Kawata, who when asked about Resident Evil 6, had this to say :
The above quote was loosely translated from Spanish; here is the original quote from the article:The series will undergo a complete renovation in next installment, on all levels. We must not forget that thanks to the latest titles in the series we have seen a gigantic universe of possibilities open up for Resident Evil. I can not say if it will be a survival horror game or a shooter type of game, but it will be something completely new.
The article mostly deals with the Slant Six game, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, but the last chunk of the article was dedicated to Resident Evil 6.La saga experimentará una renovación total con la siguiente entrega, a todos los niveles. Pero no tenemos que olvidar que gracias a los últimos títulos de la misma hemos conocido un universo gigante de posibilidades para Resident Evil. No puedo decir si trabajaremos sobre un survival horror o un shooter, pero sí que será algo totalmente nuevo.
