The Capcom Blog follows up on the rumor from Friday about a new Resident Evil spin-off series, saying SOCOM developer Slant 6 is working on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, a squad-based third-person shooter that will offer a "reinterpretation" of the events in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. They say this spin-off series is due this winter for Windows as well as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and that "Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s) add to the mix as players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle this third unpredictable element, creating a brand new style of gameplay and breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters." They also reveal multiplayer plans: "In addition, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will deliver a number of competitive online multiplayer modes. Each one of these will provide a unique gaming experience thanks to the three way combat between the Umbrella Security Service, US Special Ops and threat of zombies and B.O.W’s that could only exist in the deadly and twisted Resident Evil Universe." Finally, they have demo news for console players: "In addition, we can also confirm that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries will ship with a playable demo of Resident Evil: Revelations."
