The lack of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City at TGS didn’t go unnoticed. When confronted about its absence Capcom released a statement informing us that the game would not be released before Christmas.
It wasn’t all bad news, however. Capcom did state that the game’s release date was “definitely locked in for winter.” That means we will be seeing the game on store shelves some time before March 19, 2012. That leaves the chance of a 2011 release date highly unlikely.
The end of 2011 is going to be jam-packed with highly-anticipated titles as it is anyways. To some, this delay may come as a welcome surprise for their wallets, while others may find the delay of a Resident Evil title unbearable. Which category do you fall in?
