SOCOM dev making team-based Resi Evil?

What is Resident Evil: Raccoon City?

A multiplayer-focused Resident Evil game may be in development at SOCOM developer Slant Six.

The Canadian studio behind PS3 game SOCOM: Confrontation and PSP games Tactical Strike and Fireteam Bravo 3 is making a game called Resident Evil: Raccoon City and described as a "team-based affair", according to a document received by Kotaku.

Adding fuel to the rumour fire is Slant Six Games' website.

It's currently in development on "an amazing new project" in conjunction with a "new publishing partner on a world class franchise". Hmm...

Eurogamer awarded SOCOM: Confrontation 5/10 upon its March 2009 release.

2007's PSP title SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Tactical Strike was better, managing 7/10.

In June Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi confirmed he had nothing to do with the development of the sixth instalment in the series, but added it could be a complete reboot.
