Capcom has sent out a warning to publishers in the industry, telling them to steer clear of Resident Evil 6 on November 20th because they’re “a big game”, and that they’re “letting you know” it’s coming, so “get the hell out of the way”.
That’s what Capcom’s SVP of planning and business development Christian Svensson told Game Informer (via Videogamer) in a recent interview, adding that they’re giving people plenty time and room to move around them.
“We’re saying, ‘Get the hell out of the way.’ We’re a big game. We’re letting you know we’re coming. We’re giving people plenty of room to move around us.
The other part is the nuts and bolts of it. If we put our stake in the ground, we can start lining up retail channel promotions, etc” he said.
“The plan is the biggest Resident Evil game ever. We’re not messing around.”
Svensson added: “The pre-orders for Resident Evil 6 are off to a fantastic start. The best start a Resident Evil game has ever had.”
The Christmas season is always very busy, and I can’t think of a game that’s currently close to Resident Evil 6′s release. Call of Duty will release early in the same month, while Assassin’s Creed 3 and Medal Of Honor will be released in October. Rockstar hasn’t unveiled GTA V’s launch date.
