In an interview with AusGamers Capcom discussed the latest in the series along with Resident Evil 4 and 5:
As you said, RE4 is a critically acclaimed game and there is always the pressure to live up to that. It was very well-recieved. But then if you look at RE5 it was actually our biggest Resident Evil game ever. So in that sense we were able to get the game into the hands of more players out there – probably a lot of new players as well,
So there’s a lot of expectation from fans of both games really, so we’ve tried to listen to the feedback about what people liked about [Resident Evil] 4, and what they liked about 5, and follow up on that and try and incorporate that into the production of Resident Evil 6 and make something that really is appealing to all the fans.
