Resident Evil 8: Village Will Release for Next-Gen Only

Capcom announced Resident Evil 8: Village at PS5 reveal event for Windows PC and next-gen consoles only.

Although there has been no confirmation from developer/publisher Capcom about upcoming survival horror title Resident Evil 8 since release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, known insiders leaked many interesting details online.

With recent showcase of PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, an official announcement was made by Capcom for Resident Evil VIII: Village, which is currently set to arrive for next-gen consoles as a follow-up sequel to Resident Evil 7.

From its debut trailer and official press release, it seems that Resident Evil Village will only be launched on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, despite an early retailer leak of PlayStation 4 version suggested cross-gen release.

Capcom originally started development of RE: Village as a cross-generation game but due to unintended circumstances, they recently had to shift focus on next-generation consoles only, according to industry leaker AestheticGamer.

In recent Twitter thread, AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem revealed reasons for RE8 becoming a next-gen title.

Even four months ago, Capcom planned to release Resident Evil 8 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms but that idea had to abandon midway because of longer loading times of last-gen consoles and a major graphical overhaul.

To get over these setbacks, Capcom simply stopped working on PS4 and Xbox versions so RE8 will have almost no loading time at all. Also, they can push for better graphics quality in next-gen without being stuck to last-gen system.

RE8: Village brings back Ethan Winters from RE7, who has resumed a normal life in peace with his wife Mia. Then one day BSAA agent Chris Redfield suddenly showed up at his doorstep to cause a tragic event, throwing his life into turmoil.

There were rumors of Resident Evil 8 being the darkest among whole RE series, featuring scary enemy designs and a redesigned Chris Redfield will be serving as an antagonist, many of which has already been confirmed in recent trailer.

Village has a lot of loading zones and travelling though locations to focus on exploration, which was limited by its last-gen versions. Resident Evil 8 is playable now but Capcom is working on a graphical overhaul, starting in late 2019.

Given how Resident Evil VIII: Village continues to pursue first-person horror, there might be a version to support PSVR in future eventually. Capcom may also end up announcing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port for RE8 on a later date.

In a post earlier, renowned leaker AestheticGamer claimed that RE8 will be a cross-gen title that will arrive for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X but every other rumored details are yet to be confirmed by Capcom officially.

Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

Capcom is likely to release Resident Evil 8 as a cross-gen title next year, according to leaker AestheticGamer.

Within months after developer/publisher Capcom successfully launching 2017 survival horror game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, rumors of development for its follow-up sequel title started surfacing online from various sources.

Capcom recently revealed their financial report for current fiscal year, which indicates that Resident Evil 8 will be a cross-gen game awaiting on early 2021, a possibility that is further bolstered by a renowned industry leaker.

Often revealing leaks regarding Resident Evil video game series on Twitter, renowned leaker AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem is currently speculating for RE8 to launch anytime between late January and March 2021 schedule.

Although no official confirmation has been given by Capcom about potential protagonist, enemy details or even a release window for Resident Evil 8 yet, some details were leaked earlier including a rumored title, "Village".

While discussing for a potential date for new Silent Hill game reveal on August, AestheticGamer also talked about Resident Evil 8 being a cross-gen title currently awaiting showcase on June, most probably on PlayStation 5 reveal event.

Capcom previously revealed Resident Evil 3 Remake on a State of Play broadcast last year before getting leaked on PlayStation Network and therefore, Resident Evil 8 getting revealed on June 4 at a Sony event actually makes sense.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Won't Be VR-Exclusive, No Plans for Code: Veronica

Dusk Golem claims to have received this information from people who has ties to studios that works closely with both Resident Evil 8 and Silent Hill projects but regardless of trusted source, people should take this with a grain of salt.

Capcom is apparently preparing to launch Resident Evil 8 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X next year. There have been reports of Resident Evil 4 Remake being developed by M-Two studio for 2022 release.

Capcom May be Teasing Next Resident Evil Game for 2021

In latest financial report, Capcom is hinted at major new games coming before March 2021, possibly more Resident Evil.

In an attempt to return to survival horror roots, developer/publisher Capcom released mainline Resident Evil series title Resident Evil 7 before moving on to long-awaited Resident Evil 2 Remake and its successor Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Now that their previously announced projects are done launching, Capcom can move forward with iconic horror franchise and eager fans are curiously wondering if a sequel or another remake will be next Resident Evil game for 2021.

A recent financial presentation suggests that Capcom plans to launch several titles by end of current fiscal year, which may wrap up in March 2021 and they are likely to make this move to achieve a new sales record in the mean time.

Resident Evil series has been officially announced to be the most successful series in Capcom history by selling over 98 million units worldwide so far, which is 30 million units more than their second biggest franchise, Monster Hunter.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

In one of their growth strategies, Capcom expressed intent of releasing multiple major new titles. It is also pointed out on page 9 of the presentation that there will be 13 new titles (SKU), which most probably stands for stock keeping unit.

With latest release of Resident Evil 3 Remake last month, 3 SKU is already wrapped as it was launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, which leaves 10 more slots left for upcoming future titles that are yet to be revealed.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 to Have Most Disturbing Enemy Designs in Series

Given how next Resident Evil mainline entry is apparently falling into same early year release window like recent remakes from last two years, Capcom may end up launching Resident Evil 8 for PC and next-gen consoles within March 2021.

However, there is another rumor of a Resident Evil 4 Remake being in works by a new studio, M-Two with a set release window of 2022. If that is true, Capcom is almost certainly aiming for releasing Resident Evil titles on annual basis.

Latest rumor from a trusted leaker claims that Resident Evil 8 will feature most disturbing and gruesome enemies in entire series.

After recent release of long-awaited modern-day remake of 1999 survival horror classic Resident Evil 3, fans are waiting for Resident Evil 8, next installment of mainline Resident Evil series from developer/publisher Capcom.

For past few months, rumors for redesign of original series protagonist Chris Redfield and 2021 release window came out. Further report from a renowned leaker claims RE8 will feature the most disturbing enemy designs in entire series.

While talking about RE games in general, Dusk Golem teased a new Silent Hill title reveal for near future. Although rumors of a franchise reboot were debunked by developer/publisher Konami earlier, hopefully there is still some possibility.

Without talking about characters, development progress, possible dates or story premise, he dives into RE8 being "darkest and most gruesome", not revealing whether that is a nod to overall setting or a gore-filled gameplay experience.

As he is asked for a definition of his previous line, he simply points out that enemy designs for RE8 is going to be most disturbing among entirety of Resident Evil series, something that nicely matches with a dark and gruesome theme.

Resident Evil 8 Title Leaked, Chris Redfield Returns

Recent leaks on Resident Evil 8 reveal its possible title, settings and return of series protagonist Chris Redfield.

Earlier this week, long-anticipated remake of 1999 survival horror classic Resident Evil 3 just came out on April 3, 2020 for all major gaming platforms, following success of critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 2 Remake from last year.

Now that these two projects are finally done, developer/publisher Capcom is finally free to focus on mainline Resident Evil games and reportedly, their upcoming release is going to be Resident Evil 8, which now has its title leaked.

Resident Evil 8 Title Leaked, Chris Redfield Returns

Through an anonymous tip received by Biohazard Declassified website, Capcom has a clever subtitle for next RE game. Currently named "Resident Evil 8: Village", this working title allows for highlighting "VIII" as Roman numeral of 8.

Previously, reputed leaker AestheticGamer has leaked "clever title" part alongside a small village setting for RE8. His claim of featuring a witch-like shadowy enemy with supernatural powers also matches recent leaked report.

Though there is not much detail of her origin but she will be able to control insects, much like old lady Marguerite Baker. When defeated, this witch will simply disappear and would often try to haunt player character with a maniacal laugh.

When series protagonist Chris Redfield showed up during end of Resident Evil 7 and it's Not a Hero DLC in a redesigned look, not everyone was too excited to see him and now, Capcom is giving him another makeover for his next outing.

Latest leak states that Chris is going to play a very important role in RE8 and will be presented in a negative light. Redfield will show up in a flashback scene with RE7 lead character Ethan and Mia Winters as well as their apparent baby.

What connection does their baby has to the game's overall narrative is yet to be revealed later. Chris will end up shooting one of them upon breaking into their house and his victim is most likely to be that child, which doesn't seem too heroic.

Ethan himself will be a bit more fleshed out since he is into this biohazard mess for second time after taking down Eveline almost on his own. Entirety of the game taking place in a European setting is similar to early rumors from last year.

Moreover, there are mentions of including hallucinations elements that will make it hard for your character to focus and concept of a hook man enemy, something that was a part of Resident Evil 3.5 but never made it to Resident Evil 4.

It is also claimed by source that developers have been busy testing with an UI similar to RE7 and one that is more like RE4. Nevertheless, upcoming RE8 is going to be in first-person perspective and not over-the-shoulder shooter in third-person.

Capcom is said to be planning to release Resident Evil 8 in Q1 of 2021 and an official reveal may take place very soon, maybe later this month. However, these schedules can change anytime due to recent global situation of Coronavirus outbreak.

AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem revealed more notes over development of Resident Evil 8 on last week.

According to his recent leaks, RE8 started development as Resident Evil: Revelations 3 that was built upon framework of RE7 and Capcom made it into a mainline title impressed by its early version and seeing positive internal feedback.

Resident Evil 8 following a path laid down by its predecessor title may excite some fans because it was a big departure from previous RE games but those who are in love with Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remakes will be slightly disappointed.

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.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Leaked Enemy Details

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

RELATED: Resident Evil and Coronavirus Outbreak Has Creepy Connection

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.

RELATED: Resident Evil Reportedly Redesigned Chris Redfield Again

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.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Won't Be VR-Exclusive, No Plans for Code: Veronica

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.

Resident Evil Reportedly Redesigned Chris Redfield Again

According to leaks, Capcom has changed appearance of series protagonist Chris Redfield once again for new game.

While majority of Resident Evil survival horror franchise fans are currently waiting to get their hands on Resident Evil 3 Remake just in a few months, rumors on a new installment from developer/publisher Capcom is still flying around.

After breaking a major revelation on Resident Evil 8 and some of its enemy details earlier, reputed leaker AestheticGamer has recently claimed that protagonist Chris Redfield is going through another redesign for next series title.

In a recent discussion on social media regarding alleged change of concept for Resident Evil 8 and werewolves, he has affirmed that Chris has been redesigned again and his new look will be revealed in a new release before that title.

Capcom has invited RE Ambassadors within U.S. region last year to test a brand-new untitled Resident Evil game that many initially thought to be Project Resistance but then it turned out to be a multiplayer mode for RE3 Remake.

During his ongoing conversation, AestheticGamer admits of Chris being redesigned for next RE entry in works.

There is a chance that Chris would show up in that untitled project that is not RE8 and has a rumored release window on 2021. Whatever they end up doing, this will not be the first time for this former S.T.A.R.S. member to get a new look.

Capcom changed appearance of original Resident Evil protagonist Chris Redfield after first RE game for Code: Veronica. Then he became a boulder punching buff guy in Resident Evil 5; a look that is also adapted for franchise animated films.

Following his stint on Resident Evil 6, he was changed into a normal-sized human when he showed up in Not a Hero DLC of Resident Evil 7. A full character model for this version was also found lately in codes of Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Seeing how many times he has gone through revamp over all these years, it is not unlikely for Capcom to do it again because a lot of things can happen during development to change course and even totally scrap design concepts of a character.

Though these stories are not much believable in most cases, they are hard to ignore when they are from reliable sources. This leaker in question is no random one and has a history of accurately predicting major Resident Evil leaks in past.

Regardless of next series release to be a sequel for RE7: Biohazard or a spin-off game, fans can only be confirmed after an official reveal. Some even says that Capcom may end up announcing a new RE game at PlayStation 5 reveal in February.

Resident Evil 8 Leaked Enemy Details

Recent leaked details reveal possible characters, gameplay and monsters we can expect in Resident Evil 8.

Shortly after 2017 release of Resident Evil 7, rumor starts flying that developer/publisher Capcom is already on board for their next entry of their popular survival horror series Resident Evil, which they neither denied nor confirmed.

Afterwards, fans were mostly busy hyping for remake of classic games and were less worried about Resident Evil 8. However, some most recent leaks have people talking once again regarding possible future direction of RE franchise.

Newest details uncovered by Biohazard Declassified from leaker @AsetheticGamer1 via an email primarily claims that RE8 has been under development since 2016 but then Capcom had it scrapped nearly seven months ago to start over.

Reason for this apparent action was not explained nor is this claim confirmed by an official source yet though. This also debunks a current rumor of Capcom planning to announce next RE game at launch event for PlayStation 5.

Sources states that RE7 protagonist Ethan Winters will be returning as a playable character for next chapter and will be played in first-person, which are pretty common for a follow-up sequel to carry on key-traits of its predecessor title.

Playing through a certain perspective can cause a swirl among series fans considering some really appreciated first-person viewpoint of Resident Evil 7, whereas many fans would prefer to enjoy an over-the-shoulder camera angle.

Instead of naming it Resident Evil 8, Capcom will put a "clever title" and that really doesn't make much sense at all. Not clear if fungus-like humanoid enemies Molded will be replaced but classic zombies are making a comeback.

Players will start from a small village, which will lead up to a castle and we had something similar like that in Resident Evil 4. This rural location will likely be covered in snow and will have a mountainous surrounding, may be from Europe.

Apparently, players will be hounded by a shadowy "female" enemy but will disappear if you shot at them. This sounds a lot like a variant of Eveline but she would only show up near you at times and only vanish when you look away.

Previously, another industry leaker known as EVIL VR has claimed that RE8 will explore origin of Eveline in an abandoned island. They were supposedly too brink back Hook Man from Resident Evil 3.5 and concept of hallucinations.

This leak also mentions of wolf-like creatures to attack player character at certain areas and they may serve as Cerberus-like enemies. Capcom simply could bring a pack of large wolves, instead of introducing any werewolf-like beings.

Lastly, fan-favorite monster hunter Chris Redfield would make an appearance at some point. Whether that is to punch boulder or to hunt down enemies in a story expansion is still not clear but there is a high probability for the latter.

AestheticGamer adds that following release of Resident Evil 3 Remake, developers are not planning any remakes anytime soon. After scrapping their previous work, everyone is probably going back to concept board to start from scratch.

With all that crazy rumors flying around, Resident Evil 8 has never been officially announced being in development by Capcom so far. It appears that they are currently attempting to reboot Dino Crisis franchise after two decades.

Other requirement a participant should have is to have played at least any Resident Evil title in past aside from being a member. There is clearly no hint at if they will test out a remake of early title, a sequel to RE7 or even a spin-off.

After Resident Evil 2 Remake saw a massive opening on January 2019, fans were rallying for a follow-up with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake. Regardless, Capcom seems to be going ahead with Biohazard storyline through Resident Evil 8 for now.

In case you are looking for credibility of the source, Evil VR apparently Tweeted about 30 minutes "1-Shot" Demo before it was revealed. Latest revealed details are not out of place either if you have been following up since RE7.

Resident Evil 2 was initially dubbed Resident Evil 1.5 and scrapped after 60% of development was done. Costume of female protagonist Elza Walker from that build is added in Deluxe and Collector's Edition of RE2 as a skin for Claire Redfield.

Similarly, early concept of Resident Evil 4 was made into Devil May Cry and another version was canned for technical limitations. Concepts of an enemy with a metal hook labeled as Hook Man from RE 3.5 may also be adapted to next game.

Capcom originally planned for Leon Kennedy to get infected by a virus that would cause him to suffer from hallucinations and see ghostly apparitions in RE4, which will likely be borrowed to Resident Evil 8 from the Hook Man version.

Evil VR also added that developers are exploring origin of Eveline and other theory but they won't complete RE8 before Resident Evil 3 Remake. Although open to more remakes, Capcom is not interested in a remake of Resident Evil Code: Veronica.

Despite all rumors for Capcom to overhaul Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, they noted that success of Resident Evil 2 Remake will determine future of a follow-up project. Judging by fan response, it is pretty safe to expect Nemesis to come chasing.

For now, we advise you to take this news with a grain of salt since none of these are from official source but then again, don't you think gameplay mechanics of RE2 blending into Biohazard saga would be an awesome experience?
