The latest installment of "Resident Evil" will be rolling out on Oct. 2 for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, although the PC version is said will not be out for a little while longer. The game will be available in three different formats: standard, anthology and archives, which will give fans the decision to determine how much they want to pay for the zombie shooter game.
GameSpot reported on Sept. 20 that Capcom Senior Vice President Christian Svensson addressed the latest chatter that video gamers have concerning the company not giving enough emphasis on PC titles:
"Projects like this you guys seem to think are 'trivial' but they are not. When they get treated as trivial, you end up with Resident Evil 4 PC... which I don't think too many true fans were pleased with."
Fans who own the Xbox 360 or PS3 were able to get a sneak peak at "Resident Evil 6" by downloading its demo.
The original announcement of Resident Evil 6 earlier in the year caught the gaming community slightly off guard. Pictures had been leaked on the internet and a few days later the reality of the game's release came to fruition when a trailer was released.
The trailer initially told gamers that the Resident Evil 6 would be released on Nov. 20. However, the respective date was soon pushed up to Oct 2. Purchasers who pre-order the video game on Amazon will receive a $10 credit and gain access to an exclusive "Mercenaries" stage that will be unlocked.
With Revelations already in the stores and Operation Raccoon City just a few months away from being released, Capcom looks as though it could be rolling out three Resident Evil games in a one year span.
