Bring Back Outbreak campaign nearing its goal

A large group of Resident Evil: Outbreak fans have been gathering up people to join their cause for some time now, and it appears that they are very near their goal.

The campaign is to get Capcom’s attention so that the c0mpany will either bring back Resident Evil: Outbreak File #1 and 2, or continue the series. The petition has just reached 8,000 signatures, which is just shy of their 10,000 person goal. The Bring Back Outbreak campaign has also just launched a Youtube channel and a new blog to help spread their cause.

I’ve been following the campaign a bit, and I for one would love for Capcom to revisit the Outbreak series. Instead of using the Revival Selection series to re-release the same games yet again, Capcom could do something awesome and re-release HD ports of the Outbreak series. With the limited online network of the Playstation 2, the Outbreak games had unused potential. So, take some time to check out the cause.

    Wow, this is an excellent article! Thanks for posting this Cj. It truly is amazing that there are still so many loyal fans of this great series. Even though the original Outbreak game was released in 2004, the excitement still has not died off. Lets keep the hope alive. We might just end up seeing Outbreak released on the Playstation Network and Xbox live.

  • Julani

    good article. I love Resident Evil Outbreak I will support it with all my heart. Even though I’m already supporting it.

  • Patrick

    There was so much potential with Outbreak that PS2 couldn’t support. Now that online gaming is the norm, this could come back with a vengence.

  • Cindy

    CAPCOM just need’s to port this… They just have to I mean they can’t allow Resident Evil to continue the way it has been…

  • white valentine

    LOL you gota be kiddin me if you think capcom will even acknowledge this meaningless petition, lol the fantasy you OB fans must live in if you think some how reaching 10,000, your “Goal” will magically grant your wish of the OB series being revived LOL!!. Outbreak is dead and its never coming back time to let go and buy RE ORC or Mercenaries 3D. Capcom itself is trying to pretend the series never existe. RE ORC will be first game to have zombie transformation according to capcom.

  • Red-Dragon-Cro

    Well with RE ORC being relased soon it wouldn´t be smart relasing a remake of those or a new one, maybe later tought,yo know they can´t relase 10 games of 1 series at the same time.But yeah i support this,would like to se a remake of the old ones or a new one in the same style.

  • T-King-667

    lol wow white even trolls us here, wow dont you go back to your hole where you came from and just stay there? jeezus get a life. but i have to agree with dragon it would be better to release a port it after re orc where orc is also a multiplayer title so it would cause one of the titles to fail. much like the reason why re ob file 2 failed (released within a week of re4)

  • Bio-Me

    I would love if they did like a Resident Evil Revival just like RE 4 and RE CVX but with Outbreak File 1 and 2 in HD and with Online Capability for the 360 and PS3 :)

  • Bio-Me

    How about Resident Evil Outbreak Revival for XBL and PSN!!! in HD YAY!!!

    Capcom – “For the first time in Resident Evil history, you can actually get infected by the T-Virus”

    sven -”Raccoon City does scratch a lot of the same itch for a lot of people that Outbreak does… perhaps not for RE purists, but for many potential customers of an Outbreak product it’s a multiplayer-focused RE title (at the same time, it will appeal to many more people than just an Outbreak title).”

    Capcom still doesn’t care, and you still lost.

  • Bastardcat

    “Capcom still doesn’t care, and you still lost.”

    Agreed! They don’t care, and for good reason.
    Outbreak is the most worthless thing to happen to the RE franchise since Gaiden. No, I take that back, because in Gaiden you played as Barry.

  • Bastardcat

    Also, anyone who doesn’t want to polish Outbreak’s knob is a troll according to the people who worship the game like its their god.

    Outbreak was just…bad!
    Bad controls.
    Bad camera angles.
    Bad A.I.
    Bad plot.
    Bad characters.
    Bad Inventory system.
    The only thing good about it, is that you weren’t required by law to own it.

  • Julani

    This is just a word to those people with negative comments on outbreak. Look us outbreak lovers don’t “worship” outbreak. We just really liked the game and want it to be reborn. If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all. This article is a good thing. It helps us outbreakers. Don’t let us down by trolling.

    Gal, check your brain twice or so because none of the Capcom employee didn’t say RE: Outbreak port wont happen. Quit using quotes and get actual evidence instead of using cliche quote that has no meaning to RE: Outbreak. If you don’t like RE: Outbreak then quit trolling around the site and starting trouble.

    @Zerodin – the only thing your right about in that list is AI and that pretty much only applys to your allys. btw your also not required by law to troll.

    @WV-you werent loved enough growing up were you? it would explain why you get mad at people for trying to get something they want. if we succeed it would crush everything that you know failure. otherwise if im wrong, i cant understand why you are complaining so much. people ewtting together is a good thing try to make friends its a nice feeling to work together rather then fight.

    Outbreak is the greastest re game ever made point case. while most of them like Re 3 were Great games outbreak was the best. one reasonable thing id have to say that annoyed me in the Re games was that without a gun you were helpless even tho you were a trained stars member you had no hand to hand skills even knifing (at least in 3) was morbid tho in CV that was fixed.

    “Outbreak is the greastest re game ever made point case. while most of them like Re 3 were Great games outbreak was the best.”
    You have just invalidated anything you have to say on the subject. Ever!
    A crap spin-off being better than RE2, or REmake? Delusional, they name is Outbreak Fan.

  • Bastardcat

    David,
    Outbreak fanatics have no room to tell anyone not to use quotes w/o solid proof.

  • mohamed
