New Resident Evil Game Ousted?

The May edition of the Official Xbox Magazine reportedly has upcoming details on a new Resident Evil title. Sadly, long time fans of the horror series may be disappointed for what they are about to hear. The game is reportedly called Resident Evil Operation Racoon City and will be developed by the team behind Socom: Confrontation, SlantSix. As you can guess by the developer name, there will be a departure from the traditional Resident Evil experience. REORC is said to be a “squad based shooter” as you adopt the roles of Umbrella agents “trying to cover up evidence of the virus outbreak” from the second game. Ouch…yet another Resident Evil game leaning away from its roots. We can only hope if there is a RE6, it will be the old survival horror feel we all know and love.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation.

(Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
