Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Destiny and next-gen Final Fantasy may be just a few of the big hitters to appear at E3 2013, but rumors are suggesting that Capcom may be planning a big Resident Evil 7 announcement already. Considering that the company has only just released RE6 at the end of last year – we can only assume or hope that Resident Evil 7 is strictly for next-generation PS4 and Xbox hardware.
E3 2013 is going to be the event where all developers and publishers bring their big guns on stage, in an attempt to build up anticipation and hype towards their future product releases. Capcom has been busy re-releasing the console version of Resident Evil: Revelations after initially bringing the game to 3DS, but do they have something special to show next month?
A poster has appeared online, appearing to confirm that Resident Evil 7 is due for an unveiling at the event. The image you see above is thought to be an E3 2013 Resident Evil 7 promotion poster, while it also contains the interesting slogan – ‘The War Ends Now’.
While it certainly looks genuine to the unassuming gamer, those with a little Photoshop expertise will know too well that this is the exact kind of poster that can be designed just to fool gamers. If Capcom really are bringing yet another Resident Evil game so soon, we only want to see this on next-gen hardware, and perhaps even PS Vita.
It would be somewhat disappointing if we see Resident Evil 7 announced for PS3 and Xbox 360 so soon after Resident Evil 6. Don’t forget that it was only October 2012 that RE6 was released – a mere eight months ago. Are Capcom tempted to jump aboard the annual Ubisoft, Activision and EA release bandwagon, or is RE7 a next-gen project that has been in the pipeline for a long time?
A lot of fans are already calling this a fake, but we will have to see. If you are a Resident Evil fan, let us know your thoughts on the image. What would you like to see from the next game?
