A recent leak of an email sent to Microsoft employees reveals that Microsoft has plans to announce new exclusives in 2008 and that Resident Evil is expected to release in 2008.
“In 2008 the hits will continue to come with exclusives including Halo Wars, Too Human, Fable 2, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, and several exciting yet-to-be-announced titles,” wrote Don Mattrick, Microsoft’s new head of their Xbox division. In the email Mattrick boasted that Madden NFL 09 and FIFA 09 will look better on their platform but did not mention Banjo-Kazooie 3 and Ninja Gaiden 2 as exclusives.
Also in the email, Mattrix says that Resident Evil 5 will be released in 2008. Last July, Residen Evil’s creators said that the game may not make its 2008 release date saying that a 2009 release may be more likely.
