Resident Evil producer thinks there are too many Resident Evil games

Kawata: "Putting on a lot of titles would not necessarily win over gamers"

Resident Evil Revelations producer Masachika Kawata has admitted that Capcom has released too many Resident Evil titles lately.


Speaking to, Kawata said that the series has spawned too many games recently, with three different titles released last year in the form of Revelations, Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 6.

"I think certainly looking at the last year or two, there probably were a few too many," Kawata said. "I think we learned last year that putting on a lot of titles would not necessarily win over gamers. At the same time I don't think we should just stagger them out artificially because that the solution to the problem we have."

He continued to say that in order to make Resident Evil games better, it may be sensible to extend the gaps between releases. "We should always start by asking how do we make the games better. And if the solution to making the games better is to have a more staggered release than we've had recently then that's something we'll do.

"But we'll do it for that reason and not just for flipping what we've done already."

Resident Evil Revelations - originally released as a 3DS exclusive last year - will get Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 editions later this year.
