Rumor: Resident Evil 8 Is First-Person, Cross-Gen Title, Official Reveal Coming In A Few Months

By Zuhaad Ali

Last month, we heard some rumors about the next Resident Evil game that Capcom has been working on for the past several years, expected to be launched in 2021. Well, today we have some more details on the same title that turned out to be Resident Evil 8.

AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, who is a reliable source for all Resident Evil leaks, has tweeted some more information about the 2021 title in the Resident Evil franchise.

“This will be breaking this month with more details later not by myself, but I’ve needed to clear some stuff up,” Golem said in his tweet. “Resident Evil 2021” is Resident Evil 8, but it wasn’t always RE8. During most of its development, it existed as Revelations 3.”

“The game has been going through some huge changes to make it more like a “mainline” title, big changes to the story, characters, etc. So specifically what you’ve heard may not be fully true in the final, but a number of elements remain. So as I’ve said, it’s a cross-gen game.”

Resident Evil 8 Rumor Leaks

“[It] should be revealed within the next few months, it is first-person, and many purists are going to hate it because it’s taking some serious departures in the story/enemies and the like.”

“Hallucinations, Occultism, insanity and not being able to trust others are huge thematics of the game. The rest I’ll leave to be revealed later this month, but the game I am incredibly excited about.”

Resident Evil 3 Remake was officially released recently, and it looks like the game is not as well-received as Resident Evil 2 Remake. Are you enjoying RE3 Remake? Let us know in the comments!
