Shinji Mikami, the man responsible for creating the hugely successful Resident Evil franchise, has revealed he’s trying to keep his distance from Resident Evil 6.

Mikami is now at Platinum Games, putting the finishing touches on SEGA’s sci-fi action title Vanquish. At TGS earlier this week, the developer told that no matter how good or bad Resident Evil 6 ends up being, he’ll end up frustrated by it.

“At the moment I’m nothing to do with that title, and don’t know what’s going on with it,” he explained. “I haven’t heard any voices from users, so I can’t really comment on that. I’m trying not to actively seek out any information about that title, because even if it comes out a good game, there will always be some moments where I think ‘oh, I would have done that differently – I would have done this bit better’. Good or bad it will be frustrating either way. So I’m trying to shut myself down from that project.”

Resident Evil 6 was heavily rumoured as one of Capcom’s big announcements at the Tokyo Game Show, but it was a no show at the publisher’s press conference earlier this week.
