Resident Evil 5 announced for PS3 and Xbox 360

Capcom confirms next-gen appearance for its survival horror series; first screens

What with Capcom's Resident Evil 4 on GameCube proving a stellar experience anticipation surrounding the fifth instalment in the series has been massive. As the next generation of consoles are waiting in the wings it was naturally assumed that Resident Evil 5 would be on next-gen and now that's confirmed with the sequel in development for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Resident Evil 5 details are incredibly thin on the ground at the moment, Capcom only saying that the title "promises to revolutionize the series by delivering an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control".

It's interesting that, considering the quality of Resident Evil 4 on GameCube, there's no mention - as yet at least - of Resident Evil 5 on Revolution. Perhaps it's simply because Nintendo has been keeping cards close to chest when it comes to its next-generation console. We'll have to wait and see.

We hope to have more info on Resi 5 very soon.
