We were utterly excited for the upcoming Capcom‘s event of this weekend, a huge blood-filled swimming pool party to celebrate the launch of Resident Evil Revelations for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.
Unfortunately Capcom announced today that the bloody event has been cancelled due to the tragic events of yesterday, here in London.
Here’s the email send by a spokesman of Capcom to all the ticket owners (including us):
“Due to the tragic incident in Woolwich yesterday, Capcom has decided to cancel all dates of the Blood Swimming Pool event.
Thank you for your understanding.”
It’s a real shame, because the event sounded quite good, but we also understand the concerns of Capcom, hosting such gory party (they had promised floating body parts in the pool) right after a real-life tragedy. So, it’s kinda fine. We just hope the marketing section will find something else to serve some fandriven enjoyment.
If you don’t know what happened yesterday in Woolwich check the news, we’re just a video games blog.
