Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City revealed with trailer

Capcom has made a rather surprising announcement about the next game in the Resident Evil franchise. Intended to be released sometime near the end of the year, the new title, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be developed by Slant Six games for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The developer is known for the mediocre online only game, Socom Confrontation on PS3 Fans and critics alike cited major issues with the titles and it was patched multiple times only to break something new with each fix. Why Capcom chose the studio for the development of one of their biggest franchises is anyone's guess.

The latest iteration in the franchise will take a whole new direction, with four player co-op multiplayer modes in third person and likely takes inspiration from the Left 4 Dead games. Story wise, the game will provide a reinterpretation of the events in Resident Evil 2 and 3. See the teaser trailer below:
