Rumor: Resident Evil 6 May Support Six Player Co-op

If the Xbox.com website is to be believed, Resident Evil 6 will support six players in online co-op.

This comes from the Xbox.com profile for Resident Evil 6, but without an official announcement from Capcom, I'm holding back my excitement. It makes sense though, considering that the cooperative play of Resident Evil 5 was one of its best features. Also, the director of Resident Evil 6, Eiichiro Sasaki, was behind Resident Evil Outbreak, the multiplayer Resident Evil that released on PlayStation 2.

The profile also cites online multiplayer which usually means competitive kind.
