Capcom might reboot its long-running Resident Evil franchise in the near future, as one of its producers has revealed that he and his team will examine the reception of the upcoming Revelations installment and decide what happens with the series.

Resident Evil 6, the latest installment in the series, didn't exactly impress fans of the franchise as many criticized it for straying too far from the legacy of previous titles.

Now, ahead of the release of Resident Evil: Revelations on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, series producer Masachika Kawata told Eurogamer that a "slight reboot" might be in store for the franchise in order to incorporate new elements like an open-world structure.

"Once we see Revelations released on consoles, we'll be looking very carefully at how the title is received and what feedback we get," Kawata said. "We'll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next."

Would you be interested in a reboot for the long-running and extremely convoluted series or do you think Capcom should stick with the current franchise?
