Resident Evil 7 revealed?

Former employee of motion capture studio says she did work on unannounced game from November 2012 through January 2013.

Resident Evil 7 is in development, according to a former employee of motion capture studio House of Moves. On her LinkedIn profile (via NeoGAF), an ex-costume designer at the company claims she did work as "costume designer for the video game Resident Evil 7."

House of Moves is a Los Angeles, California motion capture studio that has done work for Halo: Reach, God of War III, and Call of Duty: Black Ops, among numerous other games.

She said her work on Resident Evil 7 took place over the space of three months between November 2012 and January 2013. Capcom has not announced Resident Evil 7 or provided any update on where the series may be headed following October 2012's Resident Evil 6.

That game was met with mixed review scores. Capcom shipped 5 million copies of the game, but said various "challenges" and "inadequate organizational collaboration" led to the title performing under expectation.

"As Capcom has made no official announcement regarding Resident Evil 7 we have no comment to make regarding this," a Capcom representative told Videogamer.

Former Capcom marketing boss Michael Pattison told MCV in August that the next entry in the Resident Evil series is likely to return to the franchise's roots.

"We have obviously seen the consumer response and the PR response," Pattison said of Resident Evil 6 at the time. "You'll find where we go next will likely be more targeted at our core fanbase."

It's very simple, Capcom. Bring back fixed camera, set in dark and enclosing locations and make ammo scarce. That's it.

i kinda enjoyed re6, emphasis on "kinda".... it was just an another average shooter. not a "terrible" game but damn.. its sad too see a franchise like RE going from legendary status to CoD clone in just 1 installement. (i actually think re5 was pretty good a cheaper version of 4 but still pretty good).

RE 6 sucked.  Hopefully, RE 7 can bring back the scares with updated gameplay.

RE6 had its moments, particularly with Leon's campaign when it goes back to the franchise's roots of RE2.


That being said, it's time for a reboot. Normally, I hate the very idea of a "reboot" as a cop-out to cashing in on a franchise's name, but Resident Evil needs a clean sweep. Just look at what it did for Tomb Raider :)

I hope re7 is better than re6. I recently bought re6 on amazon for $10. Never played the game before and didn't want to because of all the bad reviews but since the game was so cheap for a brand new copy I said why not. Plus I was bored with the games I currently had.

Played all 4 campaigns and re6 was okay but overall it kinda sucked. Finicky controls and camara, confusing storyline, too many button presses. I'm glad capcom tried to change the tank controls as well as, make the game better but overall it sucked. I am going to keep my copy though.

I am an old school RE fan and loved the first three more than any of the other games. The first one that was remade for Gamecube was spectacular. Can't wait for 2015 when it will be available for 360, PS3, PS4 and xbox one. I never played RE6 just because I couldn't put money down for something that, in my opinion, was getting more and more away from survival horror and turning into a co-op shooter.


They said before they released details on RE6 that they would be going back to the roots and possibly doing a reboot and we got no such thing. I hope this time, if they actually make a RE7 that they do a reboot and return to the way the first four games were created (RE1, RE2, RE3, RE:CV)

I loved RE6 and capcom would be getting my money if they released it for ps4.

Just thinking Is there ever going to be a hot lesbian main character in the Resident Evil series with tattoos that would be so awesome.

I think for Resident Evil7they should utilize local coop to make survival horror completely different.

Each character that has a partner should be able to separate completely into different areas and not always be able to locate each other while on local coop.

so when they can find keys and other important items this would create a goal for partners to reunite in order to decipher each if not majority of the areas theyre in.

That could easily give horror experiences on two different levels whether your playing solo or right next to a friend or online.

Also there should be 4 campaigns that all have different zombies And B.O.Ws that relentlessy pursue each character. They shpuld be able to breakdown doors and sometimes you should have to hide in order to survive

I loved Resident Evil 6 the most because it opens so many doors for the franchise and really utilized awesome teamwork. :))

CAPCOM YOU ROCK!!!

Re6 and 4 had to be my faves out of the whole series ada and leon's little love story is soooo freaking cute! :3 and the wii games aren't that bad either the only issues I had with 6 were Chris's campaign which made him and piers seem clueless out of the bunch and how it takes soooo long for a multiplayer match to start. If more people were online and didn't always want to play on the Urban Chaos map that'd would be awesome, but you can't really fix what people do so maybe computer players like in gears how you can still play the match until other players join this would be great for us impatient people x)

t will be very nice if all of the original characters are in RE7. The first mains like claire, leon, chris and jill. Thatwill be hella awesome! Racoon city reunion. Oh yeah plus Ada. For the first time, It will be so good to see them in one project. Hopefully, in RE7.

I don't know why a lot of people complains about RE6. I played it alright and it's not bad. It's awesome. The whole new idea is actually very entertaining and I hope they keep the storyline as it is because it is linked with the previous RE like 1 2 and 3. It is survival horror! You wanna talk about action based game, it's RE5. My goodness! I played it and finished it, I was just disappointed because it's too much action. I wasn't scared playing it or didn't give me a frightening feel... it's just like Gears of war for me. The Leon campaign of RE6 is based on survival horror, the old game feel and common, appreciate the new set up already, its nearly 2014! We are not in the 90's anymore, the world is evolving and changing and so are the games.  The story line of RE6 is actually commendable. I like it, it's quite intense. I am so happy that the game is linked back to it's roots and when all the good RE games started. It's like Racoon city all over again. I like playing it. It's fun and it's not boring especially if you are playing it with a friend. when you finsh one campaign with a friend, it's like I can't stop. The action parts of RE6 makes it worthwhile. I have no complaints. It's one of the best RE released. I like it as well because there are tons of campaigns and playable characters, what more could you asked for! We want more of like this. Lots of people like playing it with friends, the multi type with a survival horror feel. I want something new too and I appreciate it. I really belive that Capcom did a great job with RE6. It's way better than RE5. The storyline of 5 is a side story. I just hate it. No intensity at all, I'm not too immersed with it. Quit complaining people! and you know... the ratings of this game is so under rated and it deserves a credit.

I think one aspect of what many RE fans like about the series is that the games allow us to be in an uncertainly believable situation where many thing could happen and much more to explore while learning the stories behind. Great story that is, something many unsuccessful games don't have.

I am a fan since RE3 (best franchise IMO) and I hope they would do a whole new story instead of feeding the messed up original one with some jokingly stupid events between series time loopholes.. Fresh story capcom!

RE6 had clunky controls and a horribly uncooperative camera. Please leave them in the past.

I hope it will be to the better not the worse!! 

RE Revelations was waaay better than RE6 but RE5 was better. RE4 was just awesome! Hopefully, RE7 will be even better than the previous releases.

I loved Resident Evil 4, 5, and especially 6. I have played almost every RE game including the REmake and Wii shooters. I have thoroughly enjoyed every game with the main canon characters, and definitely appreciate the co-op features in the more recent games so that I can have a blast playing them together with my twin sister who is also a big fan. :) I have always wanted it to be two-player, especially during RE 4, which was an amazingly awesome game! And I was very satisfied with co-op in both 5 and 6. I honestly think that it is a mistake to be catering so much to the old school fans- CAPCOM needs to move forward with the series, not backwards. I am very excited for Resident Evil 7 and hope that a lot of the elements from the more recent games remain. A reboot would be a disaster and a disappointment in my opinion. I just want CAPCOM to be confident and create something they love and are proud of. I know they need to make a profit, but they should acknowledge the true fans and not try to please the people who think the series is dead and have nothing better to do than bash CAPCOM and Resident Evil and complain. I will always be a fan of the series and will happily show my support. Do what you think is right, CAPCOM. :)

I wish GS would stop putting question marks in their headlines. It just looks stupid. A good thing though is the term editor has been removed from beside the names.

Hmm.. I don't know if its still possible to save this series now given all that they have done in recent games. It certainly would take a very large effort and investment by Capcom to restore it and make a game that re-captures the magic of the old games while still coming across as something new and interesting for new players which is probably what they would like to make. Its a very tall order.

I know for me I would like to see a game a lot more like the early ones with puzzles and even the old control scheme had its strengths but a lot of people would disagree with me and they won't just make a game for old school gamers. They will want large profits. The game worked at its best when it was new and relatively niche. It has become too large to allow it to return to a straight up survival horror game. Which is a massive pity for me.

For what they were, RE5 and 6 were pretty fun  _action_  titles. The A.I sucked like I don't know what, but the multiplayer was fun. Still, I'd really like Resident Evil to become a _survival horror_ series again with no multiplayer. Last recent game I've experienced that was a good horror title was Corpse Party. Now that's some creepy stuff!

i think it's time for a reboot or something, the story is pretty messed up already.

I loved RE6. for the first play through. The first part of Leon's campaign, up until you get to the cemetery, was absolutely brilliant.

"You'll find where we go next will likely be more targeted at our core fanbase." Well I hope that's true, RE4 was interesting because it changed it up, but they should never of stuck with the over the shoulder style and Ganados rubbish. Gimme back fixed camera angles, zombies and BOW's and the series will start generating profit for Capcom again. They saw what happens when they turn their backs on the fans.

Sadly, I'm not looking forward to Residelt Evil titles anymore. They use to be day 1 purchase. That was before Re5. Every title since Re5 has been garbage. I really enjoyed the new system in Resident Evil 4. I would not mind a classic RE title or something à la RE4. But who's expecting a quality title....

Nightelf123

i hope capcom:

1.return Rebecca in this game.

2.make this game single-player not co-op player like RE 5&6

3.remove QTEs from the game (QTEs make boss fights easier).

4.reboot the story from RE 4.

5.make game much harder and also add puzzles like old RE games.

6.bring back that limited inventory and poisoning(and also ink ribbons).

7.remove those upgrade system from the game.

It was never scary , just tense and praying a ribbon would show up with a save room.

@purestkairi I honestly agree with you, me my friend are trying to 100% 6 and soon hopefully 5, I love the co-op it makes the games extremely fun and in 5 case the only fun playable way, at least that's the way I see it. I also agree with you about the catering to old school fan parts, I mean my only issue with 6 is Chris campaign which barely resembles RE in a lot of sections.

@Light_Blue_Wolf I liked co-op but I admit it took a lot of preassure off the gamer. There was no "Oh crap oh crap OH CRAP" and more "Bet I can shoot it before you go whisk around collecting the ammo and sharing it evenly... EVENLY I said!" Co-op is so underused in favor of "multiplayer" When done well, like in Saints Row titles, it is great fun.

The films are crap. The only watchable thing about 4+5 is Wesker. Milla only get to work on them since she is married to the writer/director.

@William Semple Personally preferred the CGI films. Didn't they have a newspaper at the start of the second human film where Leon was mentioned dead, only to re-write their own history and bring him into the latest one? If I'm wrong I'll take back every rant I went on about that. If not, bad movies BAD.

@Nightelf123 You want there to be type-writers so you have to travel back to save a game? I rather be able to save anywhere. I also rather be able to carry everything I pick up instead of having to make hundreds of trips back to the trunk to drop-off/pickup items. 

Those are tedious things that add annoyances to the game, not make it better. Sounds like you want RE to go back to the stone-ages with fixed cameras and not being able to move and shoot at the same time.

@Grenadeh I agree with you 100% but compared to RE6, RE5 is a godsend! right? ;)

Grenadeh

@Vodoo @Nightelf123 What makes more sense? A subspace item recovery box that lets you access any items in any box from any other box? Or carrying 10 grenades, 6 guns, 10 herb vials, and a bunch of boxes of ammo? RE5 made the right choice by limited inventory. RE6 did not.

xolivierx

@Vodoo @Nightelf123 fixed cameras were cool because they added to the immersion. Just like when you opened a door and there was an animation of the door opening while you didn't know what to expect on the other side. As for being able to carry anything you want, I'm against it if there is no weight limit. And being able to carry what you want either means there will be ''health items'' everywhere, or that the character will have regenerative health = no no

Nightelf123
Nightelf123

@Vodoo @Nightelf123 those RE games are very better in their story and also much harder and better,

 i didn't say that it should have fixed camera.next RE game in my opinion should be like RE 3.5(hookman version).

@final_zero Agree! I used to hate RE5, but after playing RE6 then RE5 was just great. But yeah, Revelations was the best of the bunch. Thats why they had to release it on all consoles and not just the 3DS.

DanZillaUK

@final_zero @Grenadeh Still no match for the mighty Euro Truck Simulator... 2!!!!!!!!!!! *insert a happy face here* But in "going back to roots" I hope they don't make it camera angles, the progression that RE4 made was great, they just lack the oomph in 5 and completely missed the mark with 6. I'm hoping more survive if you can, less "HEY LOOK! A JET... lets pway tehe"
