We posted recently that Lost Planet 2 had been announced via Xbox Live of all places – Well it seems that Lost Planet 2/Xbox connection runs a little deeper. We’ve received the official Lost Planet 2 press release, and it appears – in loose PR speak – that Lost Planet 2 will be an Xbox 360 exclusive.
According to the release â€œâ€¦Lost PlanetÂ® 2 is being developed for the Xbox 360Â® video game and entertainment system from MicrosoftÂ®, following an exclusive announcement on Xbox LIVE that happened Monday, February 23.â€
This is disparate to statements from Capcom to the contrary – they’ve pledged that â€œAll major titles launched during the next fiscal year or thereafter will be developed as multi-platform games."
I suspect it may be a timed exclusive, although I’m not too sure many PS3 owners really care, considering how badly the original Lost Planet was ported to their system of choice.
What the press release has confirmed is that Lost Planet 2 – the first game developed using Capcom’s 2nd generation of their MT Framework – will indeed have 4 player co-op, which puts it very close to the top of my â€œmust haveâ€ list.
