no this is not a confirmation of a new game but the Team Manager at Sega mentioned that some interesting info ^^
"Now that the Dead or Alive series has caught up with the Virtua Fighter series, people are wondering if SEGA is planning to pull ahead with a Virtua Fighter 6. Said Haneda, "Even if we were to make a Virtua Fighter 6, we would need it to have something to make it worthy of the number ?6' or we wouldn't be able to give it a number.""
so what is a worthy edition for the next VF game??
seriously they can revolutionize this idea and take it to the next level.
sure Tekken Tag 2 and DOA5 had tag modes, but i want to see from the grandfather of fighting games use this idea in mind.
imagine the possibility of teams like Akira/Goh or Sarah/Pai.
they also talk in the article that DOA is the offspring of VF.
"Dead or Alive was a series that was born because of Virtua Fighter, and the Virtua Fighter series has always been something we've kept aware of and seen as a target" Said Hayashi. "I've personally always seen Virtua Fighter as the parent and Dead or Alive as the offspring."
no offense to Hayashi, but Itagaki already said this since DOA1. not to mention your making it look like your the creator of the series which you are not.
