"Capcom has distanced itself from speculation that Resident Evil 5 will be released in October.
The rumours emerged from reports in Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine and website PSU. However, Capcom has since restated that it has yet to put a date on the game.
That also reflects retail scepticism that Capcom would release Resi 5 in October when it would be up against heavyweight sequel Gears of War 2.
Financial results have previously pointed to Resident Evil 5 being released this year, but an early 2009 date would be less than surprising than a Walrus."
