Resident Evil 7 is Written by a Westerner For First Time Ever

Resident Evil 7

Resident Evil 7 is written by non-other than Richard Pearsey, the creative mind behind the Spec-Ops: The Line and F.E.A.R.’s stories.

Having confirmed his involvement in the game on his Twitter account, Pearsey is the first Westerner to be lead writer for a major Resident Evil game. He tweeted:

“This has been quite a trip. Very glad to have played a part.”

Most recently, he was the writer and narrative designer iOS game 1979 Revolution, which was banned in Iran for its rather ‘touchy’ subject matter (research the ‘Iranian Revolution’).

It’ll be interesting to see what a western perspective brings to the Resident Evil series, which many gamers believe has lost touch with it survival horror roots.

Do you think the franchise is in good hands? What changes do you want to see made?

Resident Evil 7 releases on January 24, 2017, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is fully compatible with PlayStation VR.
