Capcom looking to ‘heat up’ Resident Evil

Capcom would like to “heat up” the Resident Evil game franchise later this year, company CEO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has said. Of course, he didn’t explain even one bit what that would mean, only saying: “The 3D movie Resident Evil IV Afterlife starring Milla Jovovich is scheduled to hit theaters on September 10,” and that “timed with the movie’s release, we’d like to do something to heat up the game series.”

‘Heat it up’? Announcing Resident Evil 6 would certainly do the trick. Though perhaps it’s more prudent to expect something a bit less, like additional downloadable content for Resident Evil 5 or another port of a previous game, not to get those hopes up too high.
