Resident Evil Revelations 2's producer Michiteru Okabe has said that he's confident the next major Resident Evil game will "blow our minds" – despite claiming to know absolutely nothing about it.

"Unfortunately we work on Revelations and that's kind of it," Okabe told VideoGamer.com earlier this week while discussing the future of Resident Evil.

"We don't really have a window into whatever else is going on. That would be a separate team and whatever that team is doing we're confident that those guys are going to do something that's going to blow our minds.

"We can't wait to basically be there with you guys to find out whatever the heck that is."

While Capcom has yet to announce plans for the future of the main series, it does have plans to launch episodic spin-off Resident Evil Revelations 2 late next month.

The new four-part series follows the story of Claire Redfield and Barry Burton's daughter Moira as they attempt to escape a zombie-infested prison.

The last major Resident Evil title, Resident Evil 6, launched back in 2012, with an HD remaster of the original Resident Evil having released on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC last week.

Rumours of Resident Evil 7 first emerged in late 2013 after the game was spotted on the LinkedIn profile of a costume designer.

My idea for Resident Evil 7 would be a campaign that follows Jake as he locates the original Umbrella testing lab while learning about his father. The lab could feature any creature that has been created by Umbrella so things like Zombies, Tyrants and Nemesis, but also new creations that were too unstable to be let out into the world.

The game would also allow players to discover the story of Albert Wesker as we slowly piece together how he became the Wesker that we love to hate.

Personally I'd hope for gameplay similar to Resident Evil 4 or The Evil Within where you have the capability to fight back, but the game still remains a survival horror at heart, but some segments would play like Alien or Outlast where combat is not an option and you have to sneak to get past certain enemies.

Unfortunately I imagine the game itself will be too action focused, I think Capcom themselves said if you want an old school Resident Evil then you have to settle for Revelations

It's gonna blow our minds when we play it and realize it's even worse then RE6 hurr hurr.

Seriously though, considering the REmake and how well Revelations turned out the next RE may just be good, focus on maybe....

What a non-story. Someone making a grandiose statement on something they admit they know nothing about.

This is a large part of the industry in one headline.
