One of E3 2011's suprise no-shows looks to be finally revealed in the coming months, if Xbox 360 Achievements is to be believed. The next entry in one of Capcom's flagship franchises, that game is none other than Resident Evil 6.
The word comes out of the ongoing Comic-Con event, where Resident Evil 6 was teased with a simple image, showing the classic Resident Evil logo along with the date of 15 September 2011. This date falls right in line with the annual Tokyo Game Show event, where numerous Japanese publishers are expected to announce titles.
Capcom has kept a tight ship on rumours relating to Resident Evil 6, shifting Resident Evil discussion to their next franchise titles; Resident Evil: Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS, and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Nobody knows where in the canon timeline Resident Evil 6 will be set, nor the story premise, though one popular rumour is that the new game will feature overhauled gameplay mechanics that differ it from the classic Resident Evil formula as well as the more recent style pioneered with Resident Evil 4.
Unfortunately this rumour is all we have to go off, and until the Tokyo Game Show we'll just have to continue speculating on what Capcom has in store for Resident Evil 6.
