Capcom Releasing ‘Too Many RE Games’, Claims Producer
So Quantity Not Quality Is The Problem…
Masachika Kawata, producer of Resident Evil Revelations, says Capcom released too many Resident Evil games last year.
Speaking to VideoGamer.com, Kawata said that there have been too many titles in the last few years, especially last year which saw Capcom releasing three different games - 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.”
The previously 3DS-exclusive Resident Evil Revelations will be released on Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year.
