Capcom has announced Resident Evil 6, the next chapter in the multi-million selling horror series.
The game takes place ten years after the events of Resident Evil 2, rejoining Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield as they battle against bioterrorist attacks taking place in major cities across the globe.
“Resident Evil 6 represents a giant stride forward in the evolution of the series,” said Katsuhiko Ichii, Capcom’s Head of R&D and Global Marketing. “The development team, led by Hiroyuki Kobayashi, is working tirelessly to deliver the most impressive Resident Evil title ever both in terms of scope and production values. We are all genuinely excited by the title and cannot wait to share it with the world.”
The game uses a third-person over-the-shoulder system similar to Resident Evil 4 and 5, and appears to implement new cover-based gameplay.
“From the outset the team’s intention was to create an experience that delivers a gripping storyline, tense single-player and co-op action all set against a constant theme of horror,” added Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Resident Evil 6 Executive Producer.
“We are calling this fusion dramatic horror and are confident it will resonate with both existing fans of the series as well as newcomers.”

Resident Evil 6 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 20th.
