SOCOM developer Slant Six Games has a new multiplatform project in the works and uses RakNet 4 middleware, which covers console, mobile and PC.
Rumours have Slant Six under the employ of Capcom on a new team-based Resident Evil game. It's possible this could be something to do with it?
"Multi-platform support for mobile, PC and console platforms is a key feature of RakNet," said RakNet's Kevin Jenkins. "It's great to receive affirmation from such an accomplished development team." RakNet 4 is networking middleware.
Slant Six's Paul Martin says itâ€™s great to have things like RakNet because the studio can "concentrate on development of the gameplay aspects of networking, without having to worry about per-platform nuances for packet transfer."
Slant Six Games developed SOCOM's Fireteam Bravo, Tactical Strike and Confrontation titles. The hot rumour is that they're knee-deep in team-based zombie pacification with Capcom's Resident Evil franchise.
