Resident Evil 6 announcement coming September 15?

The first tidbits of information on Resident Evil 6 might have been leaked. The following image of what could be the official logo of RE6 was posted on the forms of the of the site by akiraodasan, who claims it's from a behind-closed-doors Capcom press conference.

While the authenticity of any forum post (outside of our forums) is always questionable, we've still had our experts give the image an in-depth-ish analysis. They've told us the date that appears under the logo, Sep 15, 2011, is the opening day of this year's Tokyo Game Show, which could indicate that Capcom may reveal more on RE6 in a couple months. The text above the date supports this theory. The words are blurry, but seem to say, “More news to come this Tokyo Game Show 2011.” The exact meaning of this cryptic message is still unclear, but feel free to post your interpretations in the comments below.

    bring back chris redfield again and have him haymaker the shit out of everyone. OR you can scrap resident evil 6 and make a game called chris redfields' haymaker 2011.. then make a new one every year =)

    Honestly, I'd be satisfied if they remade Resi 1 and 2 and intertwined them both into one game. I wanna re-play through the originals soooooooooo fucking bad, but the graphics and controls are so incredibly aweful compared to todays standards. With that said, I really hope Resi 6 doesn't turn out like the damn movies!

    enough with las plagas, bring back the Gvirus! and freaking zombies and bows. also, enough with the secret agent mission thing, the good old RE were all about avarage guys trying to survive. thats all I ask.
  • 420GamerOrso - July 26, 2011 3:40 p.m.

    I wanna shoot Zombies again :) enough of the Las Plagas bs and make it so if you shoot a zombies legs off they still crawl after you head shots are the best way to kill a zombie. if this is indeed a reboot of the series then I want it done right 5 was an ok game I enjoyed it for what it was but I want to recapture that feeling of running away from a hallway filled with zombies and hunters because I didn't have enough ammo to kill em all

    Resident Evil is called Biohazard in Japan, is it not? I don't believe this as I would expect it to say Biohazard 6...

    Also, I don't know why everybody dogpiles on RE5 for going down the action path, and yet give RE4 a free pass when it did the exact same thing. Sure, RE4 was fun, but it was not worthy of the name Resident Evil (or Biohazard). I'll admit that I didn't care much for RE5, but I wasn't surprised by this, considering that I was already disappointed with 4.
  • taterboob - July 26, 2011 4:19 a.m.

    No more action, RE. You tried it, and it's not for you.
  • Lemons - July 26, 2011 3:41 a.m.

    Whatever it ends up being, I just pray that it is a good game. RE5 wasn't bad at all just really went away from what the series is known for. Though personally I would like for the series to retain its horror elements and keep them in the foreground I'll take what I can and being a huge fan of the series just hope for this RE6 to be a well made game. After all, if I want any chance of there being another sick ass RE game, I gotta keep supporting the series by buying it..........Capcom's way of handling business not withstanding lol.
  • gondarpwns - July 26, 2011 3:22 a.m.

    5 wasnt the greatest, but that doesnt mean it was terrible. In my experience it could have been better. I hope for one more like 4 than 5 but either way wont we still just end up playing it anyways?
  • codystovall - July 26, 2011 1:23 a.m.

    We need new characters.....and plotline.
  • BluegrassSmoker - July 26, 2011 1:17 a.m.

    Can't wait for this!! RE5 was a semi let down for me.
  • The_King_of_Nothing - July 26, 2011 12:23 a.m.

    RE5 was great as a game in general, but when it comes to a RE game, it lacked the horror. They tried to make it horror, but in the daylight, but it just didn't work. As far as RE6, I like the idea of less ammo and health pickup, like RE4. I don't want Leon in it because he was just in a game and I am personally not a huge fan of him. I have been wondering about Claire for awhile. Hopefully there have her story at least in here. I am curious as to what has happened to Ada, but not nearly as much. There definitely does need to be some good new characters, playable or not. I would also like a Mercenaries like it was in RE3. I loved that bonus game and hate the new crap. There is no feeling of winning and it doesn't give you any perks towards the regular game with the newer style.

    Lol why does everyone keep hating on 5? I played and happened to really like it! The multiplayer did suck, but the rest of the game was pretty dang exciting. I understand that people say, go back to your roots, but have you played Resident Evil one now? It is a mess, tank controls and firing a gun felt ineffective. I do like the behind the shoulder view, but maybe include zombies this time, no parasites. Make ammo more not as readily available, same goes with health. I am anticipating this.
  • shadowreaper72 - July 25, 2011 11:47 p.m.

    It will be interesting to see how they breathe new life into the franchise.
  • Yeager1122 - July 25, 2011 11:36 p.m.

    5 was alright but i hope they do change it from that more horror is needed.
  • pr0tostar - July 25, 2011 10:39 p.m.

    This is legit assuming this was at a US/UK conference, but if it were the initial Japanese announcement, it would read Biohazard 6. So I'm kinda skeptical. That date is my birthday though, so I'm hoping for some good news!
  • Psylockerules - July 25, 2011 10:24 p.m.

    if Jill valentines in it then ill buy it
  • jackthemenace - July 25, 2011 10:15 p.m.

    I kinda hope Cacom listened to TR UK the other week, and HAVe actually done another one set in a mansion. Especially if it has Leon. I like Leon.
  • ThatGuyFromTV - July 25, 2011 10:07 p.m.

    @JayQ Wesker took two rpgs to the face in the last game, so I don't think there's much of him left to bring back. And I liked RE5, though I'm gonna like it a lot less now that RE4 is coming in HD and I have a chance to play that soon. Capcom even said that they had to reinvent the next entry the way they did RE4, and I'm expecting it to take a while considering how many iterations they went through to get RE4 right. Oh, and another thing: CAPCOM PLEASE DONT MAKE THIS ANOTHER FIGHTER.
  • Nin10DOH - July 25, 2011 10:03 p.m.

    Bring back Leon! And make it scary!
