Resident Evil 5: Una fuga disperata

Things fall apart: Looking back at Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 4 is one of the best games ever made, and so gave Capcom a problem that - until the recent reveal of Resident Evil 7, at least - it was in no rush to solve. How do you follow up a classic? Resident Evil 5 would spend four years in development, benefit from a new generation of hardware, and use it to offer a simple answer: you do the same, but better.

Will enlist Western studios to do it.

Capcom aims to release its big hitters like Resident Evil more frequently, and will outsource to the West to do it, according to a report.
