Capcom has mentioned the possibility of rebooting the ailing Resident Evil franchise.
The first Resident Evil game debuted back in 1996 and several iterations have followed, most recently the poorly received Resident Evil 6.
Capcom's Masachika Kawata has spoken of giving the series a reboot with a slightly more open-world approach.
"If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players," he told Eurogamer.
"It would almost entail having a slight reboot to get the series into a place where it would work with open-world gameplay. That's just a personal opinion.
"A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that... There is a possibility."
Kawata also said he would like to see Capcom focusing more on Resident Evil's horror aspect.
"Moving forward I can see us focusing even more on the horror aspect and fear in the series, and see us making something scarier than we have already."
Capcom has recently rebooted another popular series with the recent DmC Devil May Cry game. Check out what we thought of that in our review.
