"I predict a riot"

Between all of the Resident Evil remasters and the surprisingly strong Resident Evil Revelations 2, you may be forgiven for thinking that Capcom's flagship horror franchise is returning to its roots. Clearly the Japanese publisher has other ideas, however, as it's revealed Resident Evil Umbrella Corps – a kind of competitive shooter that fuses third-person and first-person combat perspectives.

As with many of the titles announced during Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, details are pretty scarce right now, but we know that the Call of Duty-cum-Operation Raccoon City spin-off will release on the PlayStation 4 in 2016. We're not sure what to think of this one, but we suppose there's always Resident Evil 2's remake to look forward to if it turns out pants.
