Next Resident Evil heading to China, says voice actress's resume

If a random resume from a voice actress is to be believed (and, odds are, it is), the next Resident Evil game is heading to China. The resume of Wendy Mok was dug up, and includes a number of videogame credits including work on True Crime Hong Kong, Dead Island, and, most importantly, Resident Evil 6. Her Resident Evil 6 credit is listed as "Chinese villager/zombie," pointing towards a Chinese location for the next game in the series, which would fit into Resident Evil's recent trend of globetrotting and giving the series' Caucasian protagonists non-Caucasian villagers to punch in the face.

It's obviously unconfirmed, and Capcom isn't talking, though we'd argue that Wendy Mok has less of a reason to lie than the game's developer. Odds are Capcom is going to keep quiet until it's ready to completely unveil the game, which could be... well, with Capcom, it could be whenever. Generally, the publisher seems to work on its own schedule, as is evident by its focus on Q1 and Q2 releases over jamming everything into the fourth quarter, so they really could reveal the game at any time without anyone being all that surprised. We're hoping it's sooner than later, though, just because we want to find out what the heck is going to become of the classic series.

    If this is true than that'll mean the third set of village based scares in a row. Resi 4 was terrifying and all but isn't it about time the series had another shake up? I think Dead Space has totally upped the game for survival horrors recently and Resident Evil personally doesn't cut it for me any more. For all its faults I can appreciate Operation Raccoon City for trying something a bit different.

    Should probably point out that by "different," I mean it's a departure for the series as opposed to being "original" (Squad-based FPS games are after all pretty common)

    If she's got True Crime in her resume then I'm going to make sure I slowly melee her to death like Leon did with Krauser.

    Hopefully they actually mean "Zombie" and not "Individual infected with Las Plagas".

    Except that the one with Las Plagas infected was the best by far, blowing all those before it away so effectively they're unplayable in comparison and instantly becoming one of the best games ever made

    Gameplay =/= Story

    Two resumes now? Sounds suspicious to me.
