Is it too much to expect for them to ditch the cheesiness and make just one focused game? My interest in a series hasn't dropped off as much as it has as Resident Evil.

That's cool. While I really like the action RE games like 4 & 6, I would love to see a new horror game with a bigger budget than Revelations 2. I hope it's true.

I'm excited about this. I want a more local story with focus on the enviroment and base enemies that are actually dangerous.

Will it go back to its horror roots or will what we see simply be horrifying? Knowing Capcom it's 50/50.

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

Uhhh....

I'll stay optimistic and keep an open mind till I see and try the game.

I find it hard to believe that they'd move away from the RE4 formula given how popular the series has become since then. And on top of that they've created smaller projects (Revelations, remakes/remasters etc) to make fans of the classic games happy. I'd love it to be true, but it's definitely hard to believe.

I've been hearing things like "RE will go back to it's horror roots" for years now and never happen, so I truly doubt it they will do it now considering that RE6 sold enough to get a remaster. IMO we will get something like RE6, Co-op first, action second, and with very little horror within it.

Cheese has been a vital part of the series since the very first game!
