Today Capcom officially announced that Resident Evil 6 is in production. The tentative launch date is November 20, 2012 and the game will be releasing for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The trailer itself looks absolutely incredible! The combat system seems to have some added action-heroesque maneuvering that could put a real spin into the franchise. The HD announcement trailer is 2 minutes of heart-thumping awesome. I hope this game hits on time, and I hope it lives up to buzz and expectation, could make for a Holiday blockbuster like no other.
A blog on Capcom Unity had the following quote to describe the upcoming title.
“It has been ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President’s side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world’s population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.”
