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.

    Wooot resident evil, i love that series

    This is an ok "thing," for lack of a better term, but we all knew RE6 was gonna come out sometime or another. What I personally hope to hear is that RE6 is going to get back to horror after taking a rather disappointing trip through action-town.

    Will it be tense? Will it be scary? Will it have run&gun? Maybe. Will it have Kinect/Move support? Likely.

    Last I heard Resident Evil 6 would be a reboot of the franchise, None of the old characters would return not even Wesker, they said the only things that would return are the Umbrella corporation and zombies lol.

    They need to go back to Resi's roots, enough with the mega-buff protagonists, cheesy dialogue and all this power ranger superhero shit, give me a character, a gun and a zombie infested police station
  • db1331 - July 25, 2011 8:59 p.m.

    I hope it is nothing like RE 5.
  • Corn - July 25, 2011 9:13 p.m.

    @RicePuddingUK Your comment confuses me. You say you want the next Resident Evil game to go back to its roots, but then say that they should get rid of the cheesy dialogue.
  • batmanboy11 - July 25, 2011 9:15 p.m.

    I hope we do get an announcement at TGS
  • GamerTagsSuck - July 25, 2011 9:39 p.m.

    I'm good as long as it isn't anything like 5. 5 sucked. A lot.
  • Nin10DOH - July 25, 2011 10:03 p.m.

    Bring back Leon! And make it scary!
  • 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.

    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.
  • Psylockerules - July 25, 2011 10:24 p.m.

    if Jill valentines in it then ill buy it
  • 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!
  • Yeager1122 - July 25, 2011 11:36 p.m.

    5 was alright but i hope they do change it from that more horror is needed.
  • shadowreaper72 - July 25, 2011 11:47 p.m.

    It will be interesting to see how they breathe new life into the franchise.
  • F4G1TR0N - July 26, 2011 midnight

    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.
  • 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.
  • BluegrassSmoker - July 26, 2011 1:17 a.m.

    Can't wait for this!! RE5 was a semi let down for me.
  • codystovall - July 26, 2011 1:23 a.m.

    We need new characters.....and plotline.
