Resident Evil 7 Written by Spec Ops Alum Richard Pearsey

F.E.A.R. and Spec Ops: The Line Writer and Narrative Designer Richard Pearsey seems to have let the cat out of the bag on Resident Evil 7. On June 14th, he tweeted “This has been quite a trip. Very glad to have played a part.” Prior to publication, the tweet was taken down. Multiple RoH members saw it while live but were unfortunately not quick enough to screencap it. Several other gaming news sites took notice as well, though no screencaps exist.

While we do not know why it was removed (but have an idea why), it is big news for the popular Capcom series. This would mark the first time an entry in the series was not written by an Eastern writer hired by Capcom Japan, an interesting move for the company. Capcom doesn’t seem to be in a rush to clarify who has worked on the game, with most of the information so far coming from tweets.

Back in May, Kantan Games CEO Dr. Serkan Toto revealed that the company had hired P.T. designer Jordan Amaro. Amaro’s Twitter and LinkedIn disappeared around the same time, lending credence to the rumor that he left Kojima Productions to work on the new Resident Evil – we don’t know for sure, though. Maybe soon the company will officially confirm who comprises the development team. Until then, keep an eye on Twitter, and a closer eye on what leaves it.

  • Yes… this sounds better and better.

    This can be better if the game come with a box of candies

  • Mr.Csquared

    Some one fill me in please? I’m very curious to know as I never played spec ops before. Is the story so good and we could get a great story in RE7? Please break it down for me.

    • Spec Ops the Line was a really good game. It was basically a horrors of war kind of game, still a shooter though. Psych issues/mental health in a tired, soul crushed solider. The story was really good but there where some game play elements that I didn’t like.

      • Chris Hawk

        Atleast we just got the writer

      • Andrey Martim

        The gameplay really is a basic TPS Shooter, the story is amazing.

  • Andy

    Best written? ugh. RE used to be about B horror and being cheesy. That was the charm of it. They are missing the whole point. :/

  • Xuchilpaba

    They’ve hired a writer, now? What the hell is going on there, seriously. I’m already impressed!
