Resident Evil 6: New Release Date and Multiplayer, Not for Wii U

Today, amongst a whirlwind of other Capcom news, the Japanese game publisher announced that its much-hyped Resident Evil 6 will be coming to stores earlier than previously announced.

When Capcom released the announcement trailer a couple of months ago, they brought with it the release date of November 20th 2012. This date has now been brought forward to October 2nd 2012. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a tactical move done to keep Resi 6 from being in competition with this year's Call of Duty, which is bound to come out this November.

Capcom also announced that the game would not be coming to Nintendo's upcoming console, the Wii U. One of the game's producers, Hiroyuki Kobayashi, said this, "Unfortunately, RE6 will not be available at this time on the Wii U. Right now we're concentrating on the PlayStation 3 version, 360 version and the PC version of the game."

Capcom also revealed more about Resi 6's multiplayer mode. Announcing it will have split-screen and online co-op play, featuring the ability to drop in and out of game. They also announced the return of the Mercenaries mode - seen most recently in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on 3DS.
