For those unaware, Cliff Bleszinski, the man behind classic Epic Games like Unreal, Unreal Tournament and Gears of War, recently departed from the company in a pretty shocking fashion. Capcom, on the other hand, did it’s own fair share of shocking when fans and reviewers finally got their hands on Resident Evil 6, which is – to put it lightly – a POS.
Of course, this hasn’t escaped Bleszinski, who at one point cited Resident Evil 4 as a strong influence for the development of Gears of War. He recently tweeted the following:
“Hey, Capcom. Call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together. :-)”
Would Capcom be dumb enough to not do so? It is Capcom we’re talking about after all – the same company who felt that copying third person cover mechanics like Gears of War’s, when that franchise was so inspired by RE4, or introducing a million other crappy things to make their game more “commercial” was vital to the series’ success.
