UPDATE: Apparently Capcom never actually said the game was coming in 2011, but we all totally thought it was!

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City never had a set release date, but Capcom did apparently have it targeted for late 2011.  However, Capcom confirmed to Kotaku that the title won’t make a 2011 release, but instead is “definitely’ locked in for winter”.

For those of you scratching your head, winter doesn’t end on December 31st. In fact, it runs through December 22nd until March 19th of next year. So expect the title somewhere in that time frame.

I know many Resident Evil fans aren’t too psyched about the title as it’s more of a spin-off, but after playing it for myself, it was actually a lot of fun.
