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.
