The announcement for Lost Planet 2 has been baffling! Here's why:
Rewind to last September when Capcom swore off console exclusives in its fiscal 2008 shareholder's report: "All major titles launched during the next fiscal year or thereafter will be developed as multi-platform games."
Then in January, Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune mentioned new Dead Rising and Lost Planet games. According to Inafune, "We're finally putting out new Dead Rising and Lost Planet games! As a main principle we're thinking about multi-platform and about slightly expanding upon the Xbox 360 version."
Capcom then announced it would be revealing a new game via Xbox LIVE. That game was Lost Planet 2.
Christian Svensson, Capcom vice president, business development and strategic planning, is trying to clear the air: "That I would love to give you more information on, but I'm going to have to remain silent for a little bit longer. It's complicated, it's confusing, I do understand that it's confusing how it was announced. It's not clear. Clarity will come over the coming months."
That being when the PS3 and PC versions are announced?
