Hunting The Wild Leon In Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

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.

    "Since this game takes place during the events of Resident Evil 4, won’t killing Leon alter the game’s timeline tremendously?"

    I think you meant Resident Evil 2 here.

    I think you mean "Since this game takes place during the events of Resident Evil 2"

    Is this a joke? This game looks dreadful; graphically and conceptually.

      I agree. Everything about it screams "lame".

    Tch tch nay sayers, I reckon this looks great fun!

    Although I don't think i could pull the trigger on Leon :(

    PS how pissed off does the Nemisis look when they are shooting at it about half way through the clip?

      He's not Nemesis. He's just a T103 Tyrant. Mr. X in RE2. =P

    Point 1: This takes place during the RE2-3 timeline. Not 4.

    Point 2: They've already stated this isn't going to be canon.

    Point 3: Delta squad was in Resident Evil 2. They did their tasks in the background while you were controlling Claire of Leon. You might have noticed that from the fact that they showed you a cut-scene of most of Delta squad getting wiped out by Birkin. Learn your Resident Evil history.

    I think enabling the players to actually kill Leon is a way of quelling RE fanboys psychologically. If you make it evident that your game is non-canon, then they[fanboys] won't care as much about the game having non-traditional controls.

    But I still think it's too stupid letting players kill one of the series most beloved characters just to make that point.
