Resident Evil 6 Confirmed & Release Date Announced

The past 24 hours have been quite jam-packed with Resident Evil 6 rumors.  A rumor surfaced that the title is scheduled to be announced today, along with a rumor mentioning who the main characters would be for the title.

We’re happy to confirm today, thanks to IGN, that the official release date for Resident Evil 6 will be November 20th, 2012 for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.  Worth noting, as you’ll see the images below, is that the title mentions both Xbox Live and the Playstation Network.  Could we be seeing a multiplayer component or at least cooperative play through the entire story?

Cooperative play makes the most sense, and we’re hoping that Capcom continues the trend of cooperative play that was also in Resident Evil 5.  It’s great to see Resident Evil 6 releasing this year, and we’re expecting at least a few details to be revealed later this afternoon.

What do you think about the release date for Resident Evil 6?  Are you excited for the title to launch later this year?  Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss Resident Evil 6 in our forums!

When not writing for the site, you can find Dougie on Xbox Live & Playstation Network (Gamertag: AirUpThere06). He plays just about everything, but loves a good shooter with a great multiplayer experience.
