To say that Resident Evil has a turbulent time as of late would perhaps be the understatement of the year. The latest entry in the series, Resident Evil 6, was smashed by critics and users universally. In fact, Resident Evil as a franchise is failing at the moment on any platform it may be; movies or videogames.
Resident Evil is in dire need of a hero, and it seems a knight in shining armor is finally here to rescue it. More specifically Cliffy B of the Gears Of War fame wants to work on Resident Evil. He isn’t exactly hesitant to say so as much. He has given a shout out on twitter to Capcom when he tweeted the following:
Hey, Capcom. Call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together. 🙂
Some may say this is not exactly the best way to hand in your application to your would-be employers, but Capcom may just make an exception for this particular individual.
Cliffy B’s resume includes Unreal franchise, which in turn led to the Unreal Engine, Gears of War, Bullet Storm, Shadow Complex, and many others. When a person of this kind of pedigree offers to help you out, you would have to be a fool to decline.
How Capcom responds to all this; we will let you know as soon as possible.
