Resident Evil 5 Producer Won't Be Doing Resident Evil 6

Like the sunrise, death and taxes, you betcha Japanese game developer is going to make the inevitable sequel to Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6. The game designer helming the project, however, is not so certain.

In February 2009, RE5 producer Jun Takeuchi said that Resident Evil 6 would be a reboot. Then, that July, Takeuchi stated it didn't seem as though he or fellow Resident Evil series vet Masachika Kawata would be in charge of the upcoming RE.

When Kotaku talked to Takeuchi later that year at the Tokyo Game Show, Takeuchi said that Capcom has not yet decided the producer for Resident Evil 6.

In a recent interview, Takeuchi once again confirmed that he certainly will not be doing RE6: "I'm not involved in Resident Evil 6. There's actually a number of things I want to do."


"If I say it like that, it might be taken as 'next game,' but before reaching the step of making a game, we - Japanese developers - have a lot of things that we must do. To begin, I have a number of things I'd like to do related to Capcom as a whole."

Oh. But, hey, Resident Evil 6!

    Oh I hope RE6 will be coming out this generation. I'm a late taker upperer (:P) of tech (just grabbed a 360 after price drop) and I don't want to wait 5 yrs for re6

    RE6 will be a reboot? Maybe that means we'll get controls more advanced than those of a PS1 game! Well, I can dream...

    Thank God, Takeuchi ruined RE5 by trying to copy RE4, without understanding the mechanics of the game

    no resident evil 6...

    for once i'm happy about a game not coming out or being postponed, and it's all because of the shame that is RE5 *face palm*.
