Few days ago, a video of the “making of” of Resident Evil VII – Biohazard appeared on the web. The executive producer of the game, Jun Takeuchi, spoke about the franchise anticipating the next chapter (or eighth) could not be too similar to its predecessor, released a few months ago in stores.
According to Takeuchi, in fact, Resident Evil 7 was the beginning of a new type of survival horror and a possible Resident Evil 8 could be very different from its predecessor, as the evolution of technology that will be invested in the market in the coming years that could also change the demands of gamers.
“We want this title to be the start of a new kind of survival horror and of a new series. We’re already thinking about various plans for the next game, but we also want to see how we can continue to evolve survival horror itself,” Jun Takeuchi said.
“In the next few years, technology will continue to advance and what players want may also change, but we will always want to create horror experiences where the characters overcome a difficult situation. That, to me, is what survival horror is all about, and the next Resident Evil game and the one after that, every future Resident Evil, will feature characters getting through crises like this.”
“And so the current masterpiece is just the beginning. Plans for the next title are already in motion and, when you see that game, you may find that it is very different from Resident Evil 7 in some ways, while still retaining that core survival horror concept of people overcoming the odds. Resident Evil will always retain that essence.”
