Report: Squad-based 'Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City' detailed in new OXM

As we first heard late last year, Capcom is apparently putting a new twist on the Resident Evil franchise with the help of SOCOM: Confrontation dev Slant Six Games. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, a squad based shooter, is reportedly the cover story of Official Xbox Magazine's May 2011 issue.

The issue, which StickSkills claims to have obtained from an unnamed newsstand (pictured above) that routinely sells issues early, supposedly details a game in which players take on the role of Umbrella Corporation special forces on a mission to clean up Raccoon City following the events of Resident Evil 2.

According to the site, the team will have access to "big guns" and employ a number of tricks to fool and manipulate enemies -- human or otherwise. Trying to kill series hero Leon Kennedy is said to factor into the game, with the possibility of friendly forces being deployed to protect him. Operation Raccoon City is reportedly in development for Xbox 360 and PS3, and is scheduled for release this winter.

When contacted, neither Capcom nor OXM could comment on this report. You can see the full cover image,

The story is too old to be commented.

I think they should of just made another RE: Outbreak game, but Here's hoping this will be good. But considering it's Slant Six, I'll keep my expectations at a minimum. Their last game, Socom Confrontation, was a disappointment.

that's what i was hoping for i never got to fully enjoy outbreak because by the time i played it the servers were dead so i was hoping they would bring that back in some way

i thought this was gonna be it but from the description i just read that sounded really stupid

Lets see how they will leave out zombies this time...

I also was hoping for a RE Outbreak game I unfortunately wasn't able to play the ones on PS2 online but spent 100+ hours on both games offline.

Really don't know what to say. I wanted an a new RE: Outbreak this gen but after RE 5 I was less excited. Now you mention Slant Six and that makes me even less excited.

I'll wait for gameplay but right now everything is working against it.

The game is being made by a western dev, and they are known for their unprofessional hideous character designing skills

Sadly Leon will in this game to, a baldie version of him I'm afraid...

The_Firestarter2984d ago

Wow, I never really noticed that until you pointed that out. Kudos.

I want to point out if you actually want to send a message to Capcom for doing this, don't buy the game.

Whats the point calling the game and Capcom then say something like "I'll give it chance" or "We'll see when I buy it" etc

Wait untill it comes out, wait a few months, show Capcom you mean business AND THEN when it's went half price, or in the bargain bin, buy it.

Because if people "Give this a chance" and the game sucks like most of us are expecting Capcom won't care, there just going to see the sales and think of all the money they've just made then they'll milk it even more and we'll get Resident evil Operation RC 2 which will fuck up the story more.

As long as this dosen't count as RE6 then I'm fine but I feel like this is a waste of a good franchise

F u guys its RE with zombies I'm getting it plus the two remakes "Dear Capcom don't worry what the nay sayers say please make more RE"

"According to the site, the team will have access to "big guns" and employ a number of tricks to fool and manipulate enemies -- human or otherwise. Trying to kill series hero Leon Kennedy is said to factor into the game, with the possibility of friendly forces being deployed to protect him"

yep sounds like nothing but zombies to me...

anubis562984d ago

I don't mind more RE games if it's made by Capcom themselves not Slant Sh!t !

VTKC2984d ago (Edited 2984d ago )

This sounds interesting. I look foward to it.
