Looks like Capcom has got the game right this time, and it seems they got it too perfect as the game is to scary for Capcom’s CEO.

Speaking with MCV Capcom’s European CEO, Katsuhiko Ichii, said that he might have to play Resident Evil 7 on a standard TV then VR, as it is too scary for him.

Honestly, I find it a bit too scary. It depends on the person. Some people might play part of it in VR, some might play it entirely in virtual reality, and some might play it entirely on the screen. It’s a choice.

Capcom’s marketing director, Antoine Molant, further added that, the team started working on the game as a non-VR game. He also said that the team is making sure that they are not putting players in any kind of danger.

When creating the game, the entire development team approached it as a normal non-VR game, and put in plenty of frightening jump moments. Having said that, obviously from a testing standpoint, we are making sure we are not putting people in danger for real.

In related news, Resident Evil 7 producer, Masachika Kawata, addressed to the comparisons of the game to the P.T Demo. According to him Resident Evil 7 was already in development when P.T was revealed, and it is just a coincidence that both games look and feel same.
