Recent rumors about the development of the eighth installment of the Resident Evil have created quite a buzz. We have tipster Gematsu, who likes to fuel speculations on the Internet by releasing unexpected details. His source, for example, revealed that Resident Evil 8 might support PSVR, similar to its predecessor.
Capcom didn’t release any statements, so we probably won’t see any other series making the cut too soon. As for the Resident Evil 4 remake, the situation is the same. We still need to wait for an official confirmation of at least one title before we draw some conclusions. But until then, we believe in the rumors’ power.
Resident Evil 8 Details
So far, rumor has it that Resident Evil 8 might be launched next year, as an exclusive title to PS5 and Xbox Series X. It could also introduce a new perspective and not follow the first-person format. The eighth installment of the series is expected to continue with the events of the seventh part. But, new opponents and gameplay elements would be introduced. It’s possible to see a return of the classic characters, as well.
Fansite Biohazard Declassifies suggests that the new title in the series will be dubbed Resident Evil 8: Village and might arrive by early 2021. On the other hand, alleged leaker and Twitter user, @AestheticGamer1, believes the next game installment already appeared as a new entry in the spin-off Resident Evil Revelations. But then again, the details might as well turn false.
More About Resident Evil 8
Jun Takeuchi, the Executive Producer of Resident Evil 7, hinted at a possible new series. He said: “Plans for the next title are already in motion, and when you see that game, you may find that it is very different from Resident Evil 7 in some ways while still retaining that core survival horror concept.”
Until official announcements, however, we can expect anything to happen and some of the rumored details to change in Resident Evil 8.
