Japanese publisher Capcom has officially confirmed information from the latest issue of Famitsu, revealing that Resident Evil 5 is currently in production for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with no mention of a Nintendo Revolution version.
The game will carry on the plot from Resident Evil 4, the vastly successful GameCube title in the series which is widely seen as having revitalised the franchise with massively overhauled gameplay and graphics.
Resident Evil 4 was originally designed to be GameCube exclusive, but a PlayStation 2 version is in the works at present - although reports from Japan have suggested that the firm has faced difficulty achieving an acceptable level of graphical quality on the Sony system.
Despite this, the Nintendo Revolution remains conspicuous by its absence from the list of supported platforms for Resident Evil 5 - actually the seventh full survival horror title in the series.
However, details of Revolution are so sketchy at present that Capcom may well simply be hedging its bets, with a Revolution version of the game to be announced further down the line when Nintendo gets more information about the new console into the open.
