Meet the Umbrella Security Squad's Delta Squad. They'll be in charge of hunting down Leon S. Kennedy and putting him down like a dog in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
As Stephen mentioned in his impressions piece yesterday, one of the tasks given the USS Delta Squad in Operation Raccoon City involves hunting down Raccoon Police Department officer Leon Kennedy, the hero of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4.
Since this game takes place during the events of Resident Evil 4, won't killing Leon alter the game's timeline tremendously?
Yes, and I don't care. Neither does Slant Six. Do you remember running into members of Delta Squad in Resident Evil 2? Of course not. They weren't there. They are now. Deal with it, or better yet, deal with that insufferable Leon instead.
