Here are just a few of the many mixed review scores (mostly negative) Resident Evil 6 has received:
Resident Evil is currently the worst reviewed main game of the entire series:

It looks unlikely that Capcom will continue the action route if they decide to make a Resident Evil 7.
Capcom's viral marketing for the game shows that they weren't very confident it wasn't going to do so well review wise so now it all boils down to the sales it will get. Either way the franchise has been dealt quite a blow and it's going to be quite difficult to recover from it.
edit: Actually there is as of now no doubt in my mind that Capcom will continue to spew out action resident evil games saying as Resident Evil 6 somehow topped 4.5 million sales in just over a day.
Which brings me back to the title of this thread, except now unlike a zombies it's going to stay dead!
