Takeuchi reiterates Resident Evil 6 snub

Producer won't be back for sixth game, he re-confirms

Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2 producer, Jun Takeuchi has reiterated his intention to step-away from the Resident Evil series.

The Capcom man originally revealed his intention to leave the series to Xbox World 360 magazine last month, citing pressure of working in the shadow of Shinji Mikami as a factor.

He said: "Personally, I don't think I'm gonna deal with Resident Evil 6 at all - as far as the series is concerned I'm not planning to return until at least two more Olympics have passed!"

In a new interview published this weekend, he reiterated the snub: "I'm not involved in Resident Evil 6. There's actually a number of things I want to do," he said.

Some fresh faces might do this series some good, we reckon. What do you guys think?
