Resident Evil 6 represents a giant stride forward in the evolution of the series. 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.
The next title in the Resident Evil series will build on the heavy action-oriented gameplay of Resident Evil 5, with less emphasis on the survival and puzzle elements of the earlier games in the series. According Capcom UK's head of marketing, Dave Turner, the series has grown in popularity as it has focused more on fast-paced action elements more akin to the best-selling Call of Duty series. "Resident Evil 5 is the biggest seller in the series. So, it makes sense for us to follow this action area more fully... The dream would be that the millions of Call of Duty fans that are enjoying these fast-paced online games are attracted to this Resident Evil."1
