As seems to be the trend these days, Capcom has confirmed that the PC release of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will occur well after the console launch next month. While the Xbox and PlayStation 3 versions of Operation Raccoon City will be available on March 20, PC gamers will have to wait until May 18.

The PC version will offer support for Nvidea 3D Vision and will also include "stunning high-resolution visual effects." Beyond that, Capcom promises feature parity with the console versions, including eight-player online multiplayer and four-player co-op.'' Presumably as a consolation prize for the extra wait, Capcom has released a new trailer, which you can watch above.
