The article suggests that Resident Evil 7 will not be an exclusive title.

While Resident Evil 6 was met with lukewarm reactions from critics and fans alike, its clear that given the staying power of the Resident Evil franchise, it wouldn’t be the last game in the series. According to an article on the website of the prominent Japanese Economic newspaper Sankei Shimbun, Resident Evil 7 is set to be revealed at this year’s E3.

The article also specifies that the sales expectations for the game are to sell over 5.6 million copies like its predecessor. It specifically mentions a PS4 version, but that still can imply that the game will be coming out on multiple platforms, much like Resident Evil 6. It’s normal for Japanese articles to mention only PlayStation versions of titles they report on, especially in mainstream media.

We’ve reached out to Capcom for official comment, and while it is still a rumor at this stage, you can probably rest assured that a new Resident Evil title will be released at some point in the near future.
