'Resident Evil 7' update: Capcom's financial review hints of possible sequel


The last time Capcom released an original title for the “Resident Evil” franchise was four years ago – “Resident Evil 6.” The fans of the franchise are still wondering if the company will launch a sequel. Fortunately, there are signs that there is a possibility for a “Resident Evil 7.”

As mentioned in reports, Capcom has recently released a financial review of the company. The review mentioned, “In the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company is scheduled to release ‘Resident Evil Umbrella Corps’ (for PlayStation 4 and PC) of the ‘Resident Evil’ series, which marked its 20th anniversary in March 2016, as warm up to the full-scale offensive planned for the second half of the year.”

According to Metro, the warm-up that the company may have been referring to is their plann to launch a remastered version of “Resident Evil 4” and “Resident Evil 5” for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, “Resident Evil 6” has already released a version for the PlayStation 4 console.

The “full-scale offensive” move that the company was discussing is their plan to execute the remake of “Resident Evil 2” within the second half of this fiscal year. In addition, Capcom has been focusing on their other project, “Resident Evil Umbrella Corps,” which will be a multiplayer game but still under the horror genre. Moreover, this will be the first time that Capcom will make a multiplayer “Resident Evil” title as their main platform.

While there is not much information that has been released regarding “Resident Evil 7,” there is still a chance that updates may be announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
