Capcom has apologised for the late notification about the lack of offline co-op play in the PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2, and says it is looking at ‘potential solutions’. Word that the local co-op would not be present in the PC release appeared very late on the game’s Steam page, to the extent that people who’d pre-ordered the game probably didn’t see it until it was too late.
In Capcom’s statement, the company claims that “[Offline co-op] 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.”
Just to confuse matters a bit further, even when the caveat was added, the section about local co-op being included was left in place. So the description for Resident Evil Revelations 2 said that it both did and didn’t have offline co-op on PC.
“This was an unintentional error and again, we apologize for the confusion this may have caused,” the statement insists.
Capcom’s conclusion, which states that the company is looking at “potential solutions,” could be read a couple of ways. Either they’re figuring out how to refund people who may have bought the PC version wanting to play local co-op, or they’re pondering just adding local co-op after all. It’s not really clear which.
