I heard the next game will be more "focused". Someone from capcom said that. I think he means with no multiple stories or with gun rail shooting and driving sequences. More straightforward survival horror probably.
I still have hope for the RE series. If RE 6 taught Capcom anything, it's that over the top action and Michael Bay inspired set-pieces do not make a game good. The fact that they want RE 7 to be more focused can only be a good thing for the series. Here's hoping we get some more Survival Horror.
When facing a zombie apocalypse, don't join up with a group. Why? Because you'll end up blowing your own head off due to all the pointless drama caused within.
