Speaking with Daily Star, Yoshinori Ono, game producer for Capcom, confirmed that the "Onimusha" series are in a "discussion phase," possibly for a revival.
Capcom as a company know we have many brands, IP’s and series that are beloved by players around the world and we always have fans asking us, when is this or that game coming back.
I've spoken internally with people who made Onimusha with me originally and talked about maybe how interesting it would be to revisit that series.
But fans should know that we’re not further down that road than the discussion phase.
Right now, I’m so focussed on Street Fighter V that I’m not really in a position to start that same level of battle that I had getting Street Fighter IV made. Yoshinori Ono
While this doesn't mean that a "Onimusha" game is in the works at the moment, Capcom is in the midst of talking about the game internally. A while back there have been several rumors going around that Capcom had thought about going back to the "Onimusha" series. With the recent remasters, remakes, and revivals with games such as "Resident Evil Remake HD," "Resident Evil 0 HD," "Resident Evil 2 Remake," and "Strider (2014)," it wouldn't be far off to see Capcom trying to revitalizing the series.
Ono went on to say:
All I can do for now is reassure fans that conversations are happening at high levels.
We [Capcom] realise the need for different series to maybe come back into the forefront and although there’s nothing to talk about right now, I’m sure in the future there will be news on variety of series that will keep the fans happy.
[Fan's] favourites are going to come back.
Here's to a revival to the "Onimusha" series. A return to "Dino Crisis" would also be nice.
