PC players who bought survival horror Resident Evil: Revelations 2 when it launched earlier this week were disappointed to discover than offline co-op play had been cut out from their version of the game.
Now publisher Capcom has issued an apology, explaining that they the feature was never intended to be in the PC version, and that this was mistakenly omitted from the Steam product page until the last minute.
"We apologize to our Resident Evil Revelations 2 PC players who purchased the game and expected to have local co-op as a feature," the company writes. "The feature wasn’t intended for this version and that caveat was mistakenly omitted from the product description on the Steam page earlier, and then included as soon as we were made aware. This was an unintentional error and again, we apologize for the confusion this may have caused."
I'm not sure finding out that they were never meant to have access to offline co-op in the first place will soothe the anger of PC players all that much, but at least Capcom's acknowledged the fact that it really messed up by not clarifying the fact earlier.
Here's some possible good news; "We are currently looking into the matter and potential solutions and we hope to have new information to share very soon, so please stay tuned," Capcom writes. Might we see offline co-op make an appearance in a patch somewhere down the line?
