Recently Capcom made clear their intentions to significantly reduce the time between releases in their major franchises, and it looks like they're following through. Speaking to Spanish website 3DJuegos (via NeoGAF), Keiji Inafune, global head of production at Capcom, said they intend to put Resident Evil 6 on the fast-track to retail shelves.
"Given the great success which led to us Resident Evil 5, we want Resident Evil 6 to hit the market as soon as possible," Inafune said. "In fact, Capcom will have news about this soon..." If that's in fact the case, it seems likely we may hear something at Tokyo Game Show, which kicks off on September 16. It's a venue big enough to seem appropriate for the first Resident Evil 6 announcement, and there's really no other big gaming event taking place any time soon after that.
We already know at least one thing about Resident Evil 6, which is that Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi won't return to spearhead the title. But otherwise, for now we'll look ahead toward TGS and hope we do indeed get some news on the game.
Hopefully, Leon S. Kennedy makes this one!
2005 to present, began with the Xbox 360 and continued with the PlayStation 3 and Wii
