Capcom has made an official statement about the PC version of Resident Evil 6, confirming that its development began only after the game’s PS3 and Xbox 360 editions had been completed, so it’s going to be a while before a release date is revealed.
Resident Evil 6
was announced for the PS3 and Xbox 360 at the beginning of the year and sometime afterwards it was revealed that a PC version would also appear at a later point in time.
Now, as it’s getting closer to the release of the game onto consoles next month, Capcom has revealed that the PC version is still in the early stages of development, as the publisher wanted to make sure it was a high quality port.
"It is a small, but appropriately sized team working on the RE6 PC project," said Capcom’s Senior Vice President, Chris Svensson. "It is a different group than originally planned, lest it would have taken even longer than it currently will but this team will do a better job than what was being considered originally.”
Sadly, the company won’t be able to pin a concrete release date on the PC version of Resident Evil 6, as the actual development didn’t start until after the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions had been completed earlier this year.
"The process did not begin until after the console versions were complete, submitted, approved by console 1st parties to use that final codebase as the starting point," Svensson added.
"It will be some time still before we provide details on release dates and PC specific parameters. Projects like this you guys seem to think are 'trivial' but they are not. When they get treated as trivial, you end up with Resident Evil 4 PC, which I don't think too many true fans were pleased with."
Until more details appear about Resident Evil 6 on the PC, expect Capcom to continue hyping up the PS3 and Xbox 360 editions of the game.
