New Resident Evil Already 45% Done, Demo For E3

Freshly announced, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is on every horror follower's lips.

But when will see more than that teaser trailer? Perhaps the first official gameplay unveiling isn't as far off as you might think: according to a Famitsu interview with game producer Masashita Kawata, it seems the new series installment is already 45% complete. Plus, developer Slant Six plans to deliver a demo to E3 in June, which means attendees will be able to go hands-on with Capcom's latest big project. Based on this information, one could hazard a guess as to the game's ultimate release; perhaps early 2012 isn't a bad estimate. The publisher has released big games in the first quarter before; Devil May Cry 4 is one example. As for the game in question, we bet RE fans are anxious to prove to themselves that their beloved franchise remains...well, Resident Evil.

We reserve judgment until we can see the game in action. Operation Raccoon City is being prepared for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

I am sure the demo will be of interest to people at E3, considering the size of the I.P. The question will be, will it be a disappointment to many a fan? Maybe everyone will get a pleasant surprise ...or maybe not?

Q!

I want this to be good, I do, but Slant Six? oh man ... not my favorite dev. They have a way of taking great franchises and ... modifying their entertainment value. Sure hope Capcom knows what it's d... oh crap.

If they gave the IP to Slant Six, it will be a game based on what they do, a shooter!

It´s like when Sega got Boiware to make a Sonic game, and it was a great DS RPG. What did the fans expected, a 2d side scroller from a RPG-only developer??

confrontation had bugs, and glitches 1 year out from release, let alone its demo.

Since it's Slant Six, I'll expect the control to be like standard shooters.
But I also expect slow moving zombies since this is still in Raccoon City.

There will be hell if the zombies that was in RE3 suddenly started running in a spin-off.
