The pattern of RE's protagonists...what to expect in RE7 and beyond?

#1Sweet_AdelinePosted 1/23/2012 8:23:38 PM
From the beginning of the franchise, it seems that there are two pairs of characters (either both or just one) that have alternated starring roles in each numbered entry.

RE1 - Chris and Jill
RE2 - Leon and Claire
RE3 - Jill
RE4 - Leon
RE5 - Chris

However, we know now that for the first time ever for a numbered entry, we're going to have one character from each pairing in the same game in RE6 with Chris and Leon.

Obviously, it's still a little early to discuss the plot developments of RE6 considering the game's not even out yet, but what do you think this means for the franchise going forward? Do you see them taking off in an entirely new direction plot-wise? This is especially plausible considering Albert Wesker is confirmed to be dead and not returning.

On a semi-related note, I just want a true sequel starring Jill Sammich. She's my fave :(

I would love to see a Jill and Claire pairing.

Barry Burton to star in RE7. It would be an automatic GOTY.

"Is that Argonian bastard back in town again?"

Lol Biohazard 7 and beyond? The series has to end at some point.

It's capcom if it keeps selling they'll keep making more.

As for tc question i always figure the "end" would have leon and chris both in the same game. As for RE7 that's a toss up at the moment we'll have to see the ending of RE6. But i would say maybe a new character for RE7?

No series "has" to end. As long as it makes money, it will stick around.

Also, shouldn't RE5 be Chris & Sheva?

I would love to see either my favourite character of the series (JILL) or CLAIRE...

You should include CV in your list since it is part of the main series

You forgot RE0 too.

But seriously....bring back Billy Coen...

I think the story will end with RE6, personally.

There can be plenty spinoffs, though.
