Capcom shoots down RE5 release date rumours

Capcom has dismissed Internet speculation suggesting that its upcoming sequel Resident Evil 5 would be released in October 2008.

Rumours of an October release originated from US magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly, in addition to PSU’s own sources on the game. However, according to Eurogamer, Capcom has reiterated that it has yet to pin down a release date for the upcoming survival horror outing.

It is also worth mentioning that many retailers are sceptical that Capcom would release the game at such a time when it would be up against heavy weight contender, Gears of War 2.

Unfortunately, PSU is unable to elaborate on any details regarding the games release, as we can only confirm that an October date is all we received on the matter. Regardless, more information on the title is expected to crop up at some point this year. 

Resident Evil 5 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
