At Capcom’s Gamer’s Day event last month, following a presentation on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, producer Mike Jones made some statements that this writer took as intent to launch a public beta early next year. “Obviously there are some camera issues and stuff,” he said of the build we just watched his colleague play through, “but we’re nearing a pretty solid beta, which will be out early next year.”
Today, Capcom posted this statement on its Capcom-Unity site dismissing the notion. So, as it stands right now, there will not be a public demo or beta for Operation Raccoon City. We here at Joystiq apologize for any confusion and strive to offer you only the facts. And the occasional Photoshop day, of course.
