Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City on PS3 and Xbox in March, PC in May

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 20 in North America. The catch? For PC players, in typical Capcom fashion, the game will hit two months later, on May 18.

Those who wait for the PC version will get increased visual fidelity and Nvidia 3D Vision support, so you can weigh your options accordingly. ORC features a four-player campaign and eight-player online team battles in the middle of the titular city. Capcom has no plans to release a demo of the game.

For canon nerds, it does take place between the second and third games, but Capcom is careful not to put too fine a point on that. Producer Masachika Kawata recently called it a "world of what-ifs," so the publisher clearly isn't ready to put this stake in the ground as an official part of Resident Evil's history.
