ESRB Rating Hints at New Lost Planet Title

A new entry in Capcom's Lost Planet franchise may be headed to Xbox 360 and PC, according to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board.

A listing for Lost Planet Colonies recently appeared on the ESRB's official site, proudly announcing the title's receipt of a T for Teen rating. The game's moniker game matches a trademark listing made last year, which at the time, set off a flurry of speculation regarding a possible sequel.

Interestingly, the site only lists Lost Planet Colonies for Xbox 360 and PC. While the first entry in the snowy shooting series, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, arrived on those two platforms last year, a PlayStation 3 edition--packed with bonus content, including new single-player and multiplayer characters--is currently slated to arrive February 26.

Shacknews has contacted Capcom for more information, though a response has yet to be received. However, responses to other publications have consisted of an image reading "Stay Tuned," suggesting that an announcement is inbound.
