Resident Evil series fans have a lot to be confused about. After moving the series to Nintendo platforms exclusivley four years ago, Capcom has since developed just as many RE games for PS2 as Gamecube - even if they were spin offs. But even though a PS2 port was announced before the release of Resident Evil 4, the Gamecube version will probably remain the definitive version of what many people still see as the year's best game. But it appeares the series has once again gone multi-platform for future releases.
Two weeks ago a Resident Evil game for Nintendo's DS system was announced, unexpected by everyone, and an odd fit in some people's opinion. Nonetheless, it seemed clear Capcom had not abandoned Nintendo.
Then a few days ago, Capcom announced that Resident Evil 5 would be released (at some time in the semi-distant future) on both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, with no mention of a release for Nintendo's upcoming console, codenamed Revolution. While no-one mentioned 'exclusivity' (heck - it's already on two other platforms), some Nintendo fans were wondering why no mention of a version for them.
Well, Nintendo of America have responded, and allude to the Revolution's full unveiling later this year. They said Resident Evil 5 "may be announced for the Revolution at that time". It seems possible that announcements of games in development for the upcoming console have been held off until then.
Capcom have also been quoted as saying the game would be coming to other platforms - so it's possible PC players could also get a version.
With the game estimated to take 3 to 5 years to complete by it's producer, a wait until September for confirmation isn't too long, is it?
