Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Shifts Into 'Winter' Release Window

View author's profile

As Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is still waiting on a solid release date, Capcom has shifted the game's release window from 'late 2011' into the slightly less specific 'winter' slot, which puts the latest instalment of Resident Evil anywhere between December of this year to March next year.

Capcom has told Kotaku that Resident Evil: Raccoon City is "definitely locked in for winter," when asked about the release date, which suggests that the game has been delayed into later in the year or it could quite possibly see launch early next year.

So, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City could arrive anytime between December 22nd and March 19th, which Kotaku notes is technically what one would consider the winter period. With that in mind, an early 2012 release seems likely.

Probably for the best considering the Christmas line up.

Will mean me and friends won't be busy with other games and all have time to play coop.

Yeah, glad they push it back !

Gives me more time to play all the other awesome games coming in the coming months, that way I'll give the game a proper chance because right now... I would not even think of getting this instead of Batman, Skyrim or AC Revelations..

People may not like this but I feel it's a good move with all the other games coming out this fall. But now they need to contend with ME3.

Good news to me, I have too many games to play this year and from what I saw, the game could use a bit of work. More polish wouldn't hurt.

It was always slated at Winter. I remember the first trailer said WINTER! Anyway, gives me time to beat Skyrim, Halo and Batman first.

They don't want to release it with BF3 or MW3.

It' because this game is going to be a piece of shit, and Slant Six are shit.

For those of you that don't know who Slant Six are, they made one of the worst PS3 games of all time: SOCOM Confrontation

Intrigued to say the least.

@ 16 - I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Some companies have slighted me after amazing games (Pandemic Studios with the epic Star Wars Battlefront to the appalling and laughable LOTR: Conquest) while most have done quite the opposite (EA Studios with their copy and paste a year Sports games...which ARE at least consecutive and impressive outside of basics but shamed titles are Army of Two and Mercenaries 2 to Dead Space franchise).

Sometimes even a blind squirrel can find a nut...

@16 You seem so sure. Forget the game, you sound like a piece of a shit.

Maybe this really is for the best after all we got Gears of War 3, Rage, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Goldeneye 007 Reloaded, and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary. As well as the Crysis 1 Arcade game coming next month. So the more awesome releases in 2012 the better.

I'm looking forward to this and I don't have a problem with the delay. It gives them more time to polish it and eases the burden on my wallet this fall.

If delaying it makes it more efficient of a game, I'm all for it!

I'm still on the fence about this game. I love RE as a series, but I hated that god awful RE: Outbreak series, and this reminds me of that more than anything...

What I'd love to hear is that they are going to preempt this with an HD remake of RE2 or RE3 :D

THAT would make me happy

If they were smart, they would just cancel it.

NOBODY wants to play as some umbrella goon and kill Leon.

Hell remake RE4 right (not a HD remake that looks the same) and let me kill Ashley and I might buy it.
