Not only could this be extremely cool IF- and I cannot put enough emphasis on the word "IF" Capcom- executed correctly, but could easily garner game of the year awards.
Consider the layout of a sandbox game and the unique strengths each member would bring to the table.
Feeling like playing around with the dark side? Imagine playing as Albert Wesker- post T-virus injection. It would be like playing prototype that doesn't suck!
Throw in a base of Operations, customizable weapons and wardrobe and the possibility of romance between certain characters (Because there will always be rumors) and you easily have Game of Year material.
Good idea, but no story reboot. I actually salivate of the thought of RE6 gameplay in open world(especially Wesker style combat!!!). Who knows, maybe they can put actual real survival stuff like food and water and infection
I agree and disagree at the same time, ideally they shouldn't happen, but just look at the state of the RE canon right now, the plot is a mess with tons of holes and inconsistencies and stupid stuff happening left and right, there's no way out unless you erase everything and start from zero.
