Capcom: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Confirmed
It was in OXM and now it's in PlayStation: The Official Magazine, so there's no more hiding it.
Today, Capcom has confirmed Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, which is currently in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. They also mention that Resident Evi: The Mercenaries will come with a playable demo of Resident Evil: Revelations. As for the big new project, it's a "true third-person team-based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe." As prior information indicated, the story takes place between the events of RE2 and RE3, and players will have more to contend with than zombies. There will be an opposing extermination squad it seems, and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W's) are another threat. They say the game will "break the conventions" of third-person shooters and of course, you should easily recognize Raccoon City. Leon Kennedy is indeed on your hit list, by the way...don't expect him to go down easily.
We're still not sure this is what the ardent fans desire, but it's always intriguing to see a long-running, established franchise alter the core gameplay. We can pretty much guarantee the tank controls will be gone, but the squad idea...? Well...
