Resident Evil 6 may feature Ada campaign

Apparently, having six playable characters and three different campaigns isn't enough for Capcom. Data-mining internet sleuths have pored over code from the recently-released Resident Evil 6 demo, and have uncovered references to a fourth playable campaign.
It appears Ada may have her own campaign. The red dress-wearing villain has been a franchise favorite, and she's made numerous appearances in screens and trailers for the game. According to the decrypted data, Ada will be joined by another co-op partner, presumably Carla.

Resident Evil 6's Japanese website currently teases a fourth main character for the game. It seems likely that this newly-uncovered Ada evidence fits the bill.
"While it is correct that at E3 we confirmed that Ada Wong would feature in Resident Evil 6, we have no comment on the reports that are currently circulating," a Capcom spokesperson told Eurogamer.
Resident Evil 6 wouldn't be the first time Ada would be playable in the franchise. She also had a playable campaign in the PS2, Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of Resident Evil 4. In that game, she had a grappling hook--a feature that's likely to return in RE6.
