Capcom Lists Resident Evil 5 PC (Updated)

Update: Following a Shacknews inquiry regarding a PC version of Resident Evil 5, Capcom neither confirmed nor or denied its existence.

In its response, the company merely stated that "Resident Evil 5 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will hit retail shelves on Friday the 13, March 2009 in North America and Europe," leaving the door open for a later PC release a la most Capcom PC games.

Original Story: The oft-speculated PC port of Resident Evil 5 (PS3, 360) appears to have been confirmed, as Capcom lists a PC version of the zombie-killing survival game alongside the console editions in a release schedule sent to MCV.

The list shows Resident Evil 5 PC shipping in the UK on March 13, the same day as the console versions. However, the same list also shows a simultaneous PC-console release of Street Fighter IV, something Capcom has previously denied.

In keeping with the tradition established by other Capcom releases, such as Lost Planet, Devil May Cry 4 and the impending Street Fighter IV, it is far more likely that the PC version of Resident Evil 5 will arrive a few months after the console releases.

Shacknews has contacted Capcom for more information on the the matter.

        Yeah, that's sweet and what I do.

        Well, except for when I'm playing anything really serious, and prefer the desk.
