Resident Evil 6: Is it an Olive Branch to Old Fans, or an Abandonment?

With the announcement of RE6 and the revelation of zombies being added, the question I have is whether or not this game appeals to old fans or new ones. Here is my article for those of you interested

So what do you think about these developments? Does this game appeal to the old fanbase or is it entirely focused on the new a la RE5?

All I see is a mix of Surival horror and surival action.

Nothing more, nothing less. Leon gets the horror, Chris gets the action.

I get that impression as well. I would like to know if that's true though. If they did that they would definitely appeal to both groups as all they have to do is pick the character that fits the gameplay they are interested in.

I think it's Capcom trying to please all the fans of the games, the old hardcore fans and the new action fans

The game looks great to me, but I loved the originals AND 4 (not so much 5), so I'm not opposed to action elements seeping into my RE.
