The studio behind the hotly anticipated multi-platform titles, Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV, said that their upcoming titles will no longer be exclusive to one specific platform. Both titles are due during the first half of 2009 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
"All major titles launched during the next fiscal year or thereafter will be developed as multi-platform games," according to Capcom's shareholder report. The company has a history of "timed" exclusives, from the Dreamcast's Resident Evil: Code Veronica heading to the PS2, to the same with Resident Evil 4, which was originally released "exclusively" for the Nintendo Gamecube, but became available later on for the PS2 and Wii.
In development of their titles, Capcom will be utilizing "an integrated development environment built to provide common development tools for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC platforms".
