Resident Evil 6 hasn't been publicly announced by Capcom yet, but that hasn't stopped rumors from surfacing about its next major title.

According to a report on VentureBeat, Resident Evil 6 will feature Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy as main protagonists. The website says Ada Wong will also be making an appearance, but in an unknown capacity.

VentureBeat's sources also say Resident Evil 6 is being developed internally by the same Japanese studio that worked on the previous iterations of the main series. As far as gameplay goes, the team is aiming a for a cross between Resident Evil 4's action/horror and the action-heavy Resident Evil 5. This information comes to VentureBeat from "a reliable source within Capcom."

The company recently began a viral campaign "No Hope Left"  for what could be a tease for the next main Resident Evil game. We'll hopefully know more later today.
