Capcom dropping huge sequel bomb at E3

I don’t want to surprise anyone, but gaming companies make big announcements at E3. I know, sit down and stay cool. One gaming company that will evidently be doing this is Capcom who it is now rumored will be announcing a sequel to one of their major franchises. The big twist? It will be in the hands of a Western developer.

Capcom has already gone on record saying that it won’t be trusting new IPs to Western developers after Bionic Commando failed to relaunch and Dark Void flopped, but they are evidently willing to trust one of their major franchises to them. This rumor comes from Garnett Lee’s latest Weekend Confirmed podcast, in which he discussed Capcom’s trust in Western devs by saying, ““Boy, their E3 bombshell puts that to test. I’m not going to spill it because I don’t want to make anyone mad, but boy their E3 bombshell puts that to test.”

The two franchises that pop into mind for me are Resident Evil, which lost its previous director and Devil May Cry. I’d say it is most likely the former, but I don’t know how that will work out for the franchise as it might mean that it will head even more towards the action stylings of RE5, and that would be sad.
