Resident Evil 6 details and release date rumors run rampant [UPDATED]
Capcom has yet to officially announce Resident Evil 6, but the upcoming game has become one of the industry's worst kept secrets. Specific details about the gameplay and characters, as well as the apparent design philosophy, are now available. There's also a tentative and very credible release date of November 20, 2012 making the rounds.
Update: Capcom has now issued a press release that confirms all of the information we previous reported, as well as a surprisingly revealing trailer (embedded below). Additional details were also revealed. A PC version will follow the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions, and special maps that will work in multiple modes will be available to those who preorder the game from various merchants. Information about game modes will follow at a later date, but it sounds like the game will feature substantial cooperative play. Capcom appears to be trying to kickstart a new subgenre, which it is calling 'dramatic horror.'
