Ono " sure in the future there will be news on variety of series that will keep the fans happy".
In an interview with The Daily Star Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed that the possibility of bringing the 'Onimusha' franchise back is currently being discussed "at high levels" within the company, stating that he has "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."
Ono also spoke about how the company is currently eyeing its older properties "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."
It's interesting to note that Ono also mentions that while he was working internally on 'Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams' and trying to get 'Street Fighter IV' off the ground, he was told not to bother because it was considered a "dead franchise".
I really do hope this turns out to be true. I've been playing the series fairly recently, and while they were occasionally uneven, it's a very fun series that I think Capcom could do fantastic work with if they brought it back today. Here's hoping for the best.
