Only thing we can assure you is that it's gonna be very soon, hopefully this year, if not early 2011.
That's all there is to know for now. Please refrain from asking that question.
4- Will SORR V5 support 3 or 4 players modes?
No, SOR, whether the original games or the Remake, has always been designed for 2 players in terms of gameplay, difficulty, enemy placement etc.
5- Which formats will SORR V5 be ported to?
Aside from Windows and Linux (x86), SORR V5 will be playable on GP2X Wiz and Wii.
An unofficial and unconfirmed PSP port is being worked on but there's no guarantee it will be finished.
Note that for handheld platforms, SORR will not contain 2P modes or online mode and will have several modifications to be supported.
There is no port planned for other platforms such as Xbox but it is possible someone external to the SORR developement team would be willing to work on it.
Note that because of the 32mb requirement, SORR V5 cannot be ported to the DS.
6- Will SORR V5 be available on Xbox Live, Wiiware or PSN?
No, because SORR V5 is an unofficial product and most importantly use copyrighted materials, it is not going to be available on those platforms.
