[UPDATE] Resident Evil 5 now due out in November?
In March, we posted a rumor on how Resident Evil 5 was expected to hit as early as October (possibly Halloween). This was in support of the rumor that released in April's issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. Well, we've received an update from our source stating that Capcom has now pushed the title back to release in November.
We've also been told that Sherry Birkin (the young girl who assisted Claire Redfield in Resident Evil 2) will play a role in Resident Evil 5. Since the game takes place 10 years after Resident Evil 2, that puts Birkin at about 22yrs. Old – the perfect age for killing zombies.
Could she be the second playable character for the rumored Co-op? Only time will tell, however, this role may be reserved for the female mercenary recently shown in Japan’s Famitsu magazine.
With a new trailer set to debut May 31st, we hope some of these rumors will be answered. Stay tuned to PSU.com for more information.
A mysterious countdown has recently surfaced on Resident Evil's official website.
Make of it what you will, but we're betting it has something to do with the aforementioned trailer on May 31. Stay tuned.
