UPDATE

No longer a rumor, kids, Chris and Leon are BACK! Enjoy the reveal trailer.



As revealed in the trailer, the game will hit store shelves on November 20th, 2012.

ORIGINAL STORY

That cold chill that ran down your spine this afternoon might be the fore-warning of the announcement of Resident Evil 6.

According to IGN, an eagle-eyed reader spotted the following displayed in a window at their local GameStop.

Resident Evil 6 Leak


As you can see, it proudly proclaims the next installment of one of Capcom's premier franchises will be hitting consoles on November 20th of this year. Another rumor speculates that Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy will be featured as main protagonists.

Capcom has yet to confirm or deny this story, saying that they won't comment on rumors or speculation, but, in the eyes of this Hound, this looks pretty legitimate.

As always, we'll keep you updated for the (inevitable) official confirmation.

Will it be zombies, majinis, or something else?

I personally hope they keep the co-op play, loved resident evil 5 for it

Is it too much to hope for closed camera angles and conserving ammo? Back when it wasn't a shooter...

I hope they lose the co-op play. Resident Evil 4 was so much better then 5 for that reason alone. Makes it more fun playing alone then co-op and talking to someone else who pretty much wants to skip cutscenes and talk about life. And even worse is putting the game in control in Resident Evil 5, then you have to babysit and can't really set things at your own pace.

Uh, anybody think to call up that local Gamestop or maybe corporate HQ for confirmation? Seriously people use your noggins, the best way to snuff out the truth is to start at the source.

Ed. Wow, 3 minutes later a reveal trailer drops. Gotta love the interwebs.
Feel free to add me or message me for assistance on any similar games =)

I hope you're talking about coop play with a friend. Because the ungodly thick Sheva AI pretty much did that game in for me.

But if they *fix (make it.. not.. stupid) the partner AI I'm all for seeing another coopable Resident Evil game

Edit: Oh, and to Capcom: Please, please don't make it suck

Edit:Edit: Watched the trailer. It looks good but it does NOT look like a survival horror game. It looks like what 5 should've been.

It also looks like Leon is the new Dante. Sweeeeeet
