Mysterious site hints at Resident Evil 6 announcement

Full of creepy videos and ominous photography, a semi-professional blog called nohopeleft.com has been makings its rounds. The site smells like viral marketing, generating hype for a possible Resident Evil 6 announcement, we’d guess, given all the Biohazard logos and spoken Chinese.

While a connection to the People’s Republic was recently revealed when a voice actress put “Resident Evil 6” and “Chinese Villager/Zombie” on her resume, the multinational graffiti appearing on the site hints that RE 6 could be a world-wide affair. There’s also several videos of a distressed Chinese woman crying, one of which ends with a date and time: 14.00 PST and 1.19.2012. Perhaps the official announcement will come tomorrow?

Capcom has a penchant these kind of campaigns. You may recall the ones it launched for Dead Rising 2and Resident Evil 5. Still, there’s a chance that this shell-shocked woman is just a Capcom employee who saw the lukewarm reviews for Resident Evil: Mercenaries. Don’t worry lady, we believe that RE 6 will be great.

GamesRadar reached out to Capcom for comment and will update the story if we hear back from them.

    I like how the maps show *something* happening at different points of the globe. It'd be pretty cool if Capcom have developed tech similar to EA's mountain terrain generator for SSX. Can you imagine how cool it'd be if you could input your own hometown and it generates the place for you to survive in? Sorry. That's two wildly OTT wishes for future zombie games in a row. I'll stop now.

    Ima second that. That'd literally be the coolest thing ever. I've been waiting for the ability to do that for years :/

    If this is real, I'm kind of into this.
