It’d be an understatement to say that the community reaction to Project REsistance is a bit mixed. I don’t know that I’ve seen (or participated in) a more contentious debate for quite some time.
Producer Masachika Kawata had a nice little conference on Thursday, talking a bit about the design and concept behind REsistance. Oh, also, it’s a working title and there’s an offline component as well. No big deal.
While the producer clearly thinks this is single-slide news, I’m sure many others will be much happier to hear it. Best guess is that Project REsistance, as many have guessed, is simply the development title, being used to hide what the rest of the game will contain.
The focus is currently on getting the multiplayer right, but that doesn’t change the fact that the single-player half could be anything. It could even be Resident Evil 8 for all we know.
Key Points so far on Project REsistance
- The multiplayer is only a part of the final game. It will have a single-player.
- Project REsistance is a working title — the final, official title has not been revealed.
- Gameplay takes place in Raccoon City during the Outbreak.
- The game was outsourced.
For now, but it looks like we’ll just have to hold out for the closed beta in October before we learn anything else.
