Capcom has decided to pile a huge amount of resources at Resident Evil 6, making it their largest ever project, according to the game's executive producer.

Hiroyuki Kobayashi revealed that there will be more than 600 people working on Resident Evil 6, with only 150 of those working at Capcom's HQ in Japan. The rest of the staff will be made up from different studios around the world.

With Resident Evil 6, Capcom are hoping to re-invent the survival horror genre by making something called "dramatic horror". Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the game's producer, believes it will offer a "deeper experience", which offers a "blend of action and survival horror."

Resident Evil 6 is due to release this November on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A release for the PC is also planned, but it will be appearing at a later date.
