A statement made by Capcom's Mike Jones following a Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City presentation implied a beta was forthcoming, that no longer appears to be the case.
Capcom shot down any plans for a public demo or beta on its Capcom-Unity site today, citing "a website misreporting what was said during an interview" as the cause of confusion.
According to Joystiq, Jones originally said: "Obviously there are some camera issues and stuff," referring to a hands-off demo of the game being demoed, "but we're nearing a pretty solid beta, which will be out early next year."
Capcom says that no demo or beta is in the works. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is scheduled to arrive in 2012 for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
