Earlier this year, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi said that he didn’t think he’d be involved in Resident Evil 6. Today, he confirms that statement.
“I’m not involved in Resident Evil 6. There’s actually a number of things I want to do,” Takeuchi told 4Gamer (via Andriasang).
What other things is Takeuchi working on, then?
“If I say it like that, it might be taken as ‘next game,’ but before reaching the step of making a game, we — Japanese developers — have a lot of things that we must do. To begin, I have a number of things I’d like to do related to Capcom as a whole.”
While Takeuchi confirmed that he’ll be out of the limelight for a while, he did hype up some future Capcom announcements that will be made this year, involving himself and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.
“This year’s Capcom is very interesting. The titles we’ll announce in the future will surprise many people. We’ll be announcing this year the things that Inafune (Keiji) and I have been working on over the past year.”
