Resident Evil 8 Rumored to Release in 2021

Newest leak from AestheticGamer reveals that Resident Evil 8 is rumored to release next year, with themes of occultism and such.

Right after releasing first-person survival horror game Resident Evil 7, there was rumors of developer/publisher Capcom already started working on Resident Evil 8 and presumably been under active development for some time.

A newly rumored leak from reputed leaker AestheticGamer claims that Resident Evil 8 is going to be in first-person and would take long-running Resident Evil franchise to a brand-new direction when it will come out next year.

According to his newest leaks, Resident Evil 8 originally starts development as Resident Evil: Revelations 3 but it quickly became a mainline title instead when Capcom was too impressed by one of its early version and internal feedback.

Aside from first-person perspective, the game will introduce elements of occultism, sequences of hallucination and insanity with an undertone of major distrust among characters to take Resident Evil franchise to a new direction.

In a latest Tweet, industry insider AestheticGamer AKA Dusk Golem has revealed some major details on RE8.

What they actually intended for RE8 to be back then are now set aside in favor of recent changes and may be picked up later. Whether they still make it to become a numbered series entry or a spin-off is yet to be seen in future though.

Of course, any major rumor as such should be taken with a grain of salt up until official sources confirm them and in case of Dusk Golem, there is no exception either even though his leaks on Resident Evil 3 Remake were accurate in past so far.

Although Capcom didn't follow a set path of changes that was introduced in RE7 when it comes to recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 in 2019 and Resident Evil 3 in 2020, these projects were heavily lauded by critics and fans in general.

Both of these titles were overall improvement of their classic counterparts and would likely to inspire Capcom to release more remakes. It is only a matter of time that they will start working on a reimagining of Resident Evil 4 in near future.

However, recent rumors on RE8 sound really tempting and probably may even turn out to be true at some extent or in its entirety, mostly for fans that prefers any new titles of RE main series over Capcom's remakes in recent years.

All plausible indication that came out thus far suggests that next Resident Evil game will be a major game-changer in terms of mechanics that were scrapped before and may end up getting revealed very soon, probably by end of this month.

The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed Indefinitely

Sony has delayed release of The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR for indefinite time until further notice.

In recent wake of Coronavirus pandemic, every major entertainment media including video game industry are being affected and upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive title The Last of Us Part II becomes one of its most recent causality.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has lately decided to postpone launch for two of their expected PS4 titles due to global crisis of COVID-19 that is disrupting related services from providing a standard launch experience for all players.

The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed Indefinitely

RELATED: Naughty Dog Needs to Work on Its Crunch Culture

Originally, The Last of Us 2 had a February release date that was eventually delayed by developer Naughty Dog and moved to May 29, which is now delayed until further notice alongside VR shooter title Marvel's Iron Man VR.

It is safe to say that most recent delay in TLoU2 is not because of developers needing more time to work on it but because of logistics. Since Coronavirus is having impact on economy, Sony had no better option than pushing back its launch.

In a recent post through official Twitter account, Naughty Dog states that they were in the middle of fixing final bugs at this point. Even if they finish it up now, they can't make sure that everyone gets to play it around same time.

Therefore, studios settled on delaying The Last of Us Part 2 until logistic issues can be solved before release. Of course, neither dev team nor players are happy about the postponement but this will be a fair action to everyone right now.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part 2 to Feature Nudity & Sexual Content

In a time of distress when many are seeking comfort in video games to deal with boredom during quarantine, a widely-anticipated game like The Last of Us sequel getting delayed indefinitely is truly disappointing for sure.

Sony and Naughty Dog will be announcing updates on The Last of Us Part II and Iron Man VR as soon as they will have one. Unless they end up pushing back PlayStation 5 release date, these games may possibly arrive in summer 2020.

John Wick Hex Comes to PS4

Bithell Games is finally bringing fast-paced action strategy game John Wick Hex to PS4 next month, on May 5.

A prequel game based on action thriller John Wick movie franchise, British developer studio Bithell Games and publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment released action strategy title John Wick Hex last year for PC via Epic Games Store.

Out of the blue, Sony came out announcing today that Baba Yaga will be arriving on PlayStation 4 on May 5, 2020. Prepare to become the boogie man in a reimagination of John Wick in an action strategy video game next month.

JWH is a unique experience that focuses on time-based actions instead of turn-based strategy and it all plays out as it was seen in movies. Since each actions require set amount of time, your performance would depend on how you manage it.

Distribution company Lionsgate and Thunder Road Pictures has given full freedom of exploring source material of the film series to game director Mike Bithell, who previously worked on games like Thomas Was Alone and Volume.

He even took advice from director Chad Stahelski on gameplay mechanics during editing of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. They also collaborated with Ant Workshop studio to redesign the game from ground up for PS4 console.

Hex adapts a comic-book style visual and nicely depicts actor Keanu Reeves (Constantine, The Matrix) starrer character of a professional hitman. Fan-favorite voice talent of Troy Baker (Mortal Kombat X, Resident Evil 6) returns as main villain.

This latest adventure of John Wick is reprising roles of both Ian McShane and Lance Reddick from movies to hype players up even more. Wick will go after a whole new group of bad guys on behalf of High Table when he is still in his prime.

Re-watching John Wick trilogy before you get to play John Wick Hex on PS4 at launch day will be a good idea to get into the right vibe. Aside from getting a good taste of strategy game, this is a great chance to become Baba Yaga yourself.
