To be honest, I'm not surprised. Giving how RE has been constantly shat on, revived successfully, then tarnished again because Capcom fooled people into gaining their trust, I'm absolutely amazed he didn't leave a lot sooner.
It's getting hard to care about this franchise anymore. Especially giving how many times Capcom goes back to Raccoon City. It has probably been 5,632,891 times by now.
