'Painkiller: Hell Wars' (Xbox) Coming to Xbox 360?

Painkiller is a first-person horror shooter, designed to satisfy the gamer's hunger for intense, fast-paced action. You are Painkiller, a mercenary for hire, charged with cleaning out nests of the undead. But an unholy pact with a demon unknowingly puts you square in the middle of a fight for control of the underworld... with the future of humanity hanging in the balance.
In a recent developer chat session with People Can Fly's Andrzej Poznanski and Dreamcatcher's Robert Stevenson, a vague mention was made of a possible X360 version. A question whether the infamous carnival level would be included in the Xbox version resulted in Andrzej saying "Oh, that one was just too much for the console. You can see en entire level there and there was just too many polys to render, but maybe on Xbox 360... :) keep your fingers crossed!" Maybe we will get more details at E3, but so far it is not included in DreamCatcher's lineup.
