Rumor: You Can Walk And Aim At the Same Time in Next Resident Evil
According to “a document forwarded to Kotaku,” Canadian developer Slant Six (logo above) is working on a new team-based Resident Evil game. Slant Six is the company behind SOCOM Tactical Strike and Fire Team Bravo 3 on the PSP and SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Confrontation on the PS3. You can move while aiming in those games.
The documents call the new game Resident Evil: Raccoon City.
And that’s the extent of the news, unless you think it’s news that the Slant Six website says they’re working on a game. As usual, we’ll have to wait and see on this, because Capcom ain’t talkin about it. I would guess this is not Resident Evil 6, though, because (no disrespect to Slant Six), I’d have a hard time imagining Capcom handing a main entry in this franchise over to a developer most folks aren’t familiar with. This would be far more surprising, I would say, than Capcom handing Devil May Cry over to Ninja Theory.
