Resident Evil 6 Trailer Bumps Up the Release Date to October

I’ve been admittedly out of the Resident Evil game since Resident Evil Code: Veronica, but Resident Evil 6 is starting to grab me by the short and curlies and get my attention. The new Captivate 2012 trailer is full of action, suspense, and grotesque mutating monsters which is perfect for any adventurous occasion.

The interesting thing about this trailer is that it also highlights the fact the launch date for Resident Evil 6 is now October 2, 2012. This makes me both excited and a little worried at the same time. I’m excited to find out if this latest installment of the series can bring the game back to its glory days of being the premiere survival horror game available. There have been a lot of great successes outside this franchise, and it would be nice to see a familiar face around. I’m worried because the last time I saw a notable game with a bumped up launch date was Brink, and I don’t think I need to remind you how that one turned out. That game was only moved up a week or so – not a full month like Resident Evil 6. Either way this trailer gets my adrenaline flowing and forces me to search for a vaccine for the C-Virus.

Are you excited for Resident Evil 6?
