'Too many' Resident Evil games in recent years, says producer

Like zombies in a shopping mall, Resident Evil has been crowding the market in the last couple of years. Resident Evil 6 marked the fourth release in only two years, after ORC, Revelations, and Mercenaries 3D. Capcom seems to recognize that perhaps flooding the market isn't the best of ideas, at least if recent comments from Revelations producer Masachika Kawata are any indication.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City continues to boost Capcom

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City continues to boost Capcom

You'd think that the recent release of Resident Evil 6 would have slowed down sales of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. However, fans are proving that they love terrible Resident Evil games. In its latest financial report, Capcom noted that Slant Six's shooter "enjoyed steady growth in sales." Additionally, the game's "stable popularity" has contributed to "improved profit" from the game's numerous DLC expansions.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer sees layoffs

Vancouver-based developer Slant Six has laid off "more than a quarter" of its employees today. The company most recently shipped Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City--a multiplayer third-person shooter that sold well, in spite of mostly negative reviews. Beyond ORC, the developer worked on the SOCOM franchise, working on various PSP iterations of the series, as well as the critically-panned SOCOM: Confrontation.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review

On paper, the idea of a squad-based shooter drawing from Resident Evil canon with loose narrative ties to the earlier games in the series seems like a solid idea. Slant Six Games' Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City executes on the concept with varying degrees of success, but much of the experience is undermined by a number of basic game mechanics that, at best, just aren't particularly fun. On the contrary, annoyance and frustration were much more prevalent emotions throughout my experience.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City 'a world of ifs,' says Capcom

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City takes place loosely between RE2 and RE3, but Capcom says continuity nerds shouldn't read too much into the placement. Producer Masachika Kawata says the story has "not so much to do with the RE history" and poses the spin-off as tangentially related.

Operation Raccoon City trailer features some familiar faces

Though the game is a drastic departure from past Resident Evil titles--including the ability to shoot while moving--Operation Raccoon City will have a few familiar faces.

A new trailer for the upcoming shooter from developer Slant Six Games shows off some of the "Heroes" featured in the title. It may not play like the Resident Evil you know and love, but at least you'll be experiencing it with old friends.

Capcom: No plans for Operation Raccoon City beta or demo

E3 2011: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

QUICKTAKE: The Resident Evil franchise has always had its quirks -- from cheesy dialogue, awkward controls, to a limited inventory system -- and those quirks have been able to prevent it from undergoing "just another zombie game" syndrome. Developer Slant Six's new multiplayer-focused Operation Raccoon City, however, sheds all the charm the series is known for. This is, unfortunately, "just another zombie game."
