Capcom has said that even though Australian distribution firm Red Ant has gone under, it doesn’t expect delays its titles.

“Certain recent news reports have speculated that owing to the financial status of Red Ant, Capcom’s distributor in Australia, that the release dates of Capcom’s forthcoming titles in this territory may be delayed,” the company said to CVG.

“Capcom would like to state it does not expect any such delays and to reconfirm the following release dates: Street Fighter IV (PS3 & 360) – February 20th, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop (Wii) – February 27th, Resident Evil 5 (PS3 & 360) – March 13th.

“Future titles such as MotoGP (Nintendo Will) and Neopets Puzzle Adventure (DS, Wii & PC) are all scheduled to release in line with other PAL territories,” Capcom added.
