it's not dead there just trying differnt stuff they have been around along time now and i don't think capcom will let it die. plus with the 3d that doesn't look bad on gaming you could see some more stuff. the next R.E. came is going back to the first outbreak from the bad guys point of refrence in destroying evidence and killing stars members that servived the other episodes. So with 3D and that it will be here along time.
