As seen in the leaked documents that revealed a lot of the future plans of Capcom, they were aiming to release it in April 2021 while Dusk Golem has heard May 2021 as a potential launch window.

  • Dusk Golem suggests that the game is meatier and will review better than Resident Evil 7.
  • Capcom is confident in the quality of the game.
  • There will be high interest around the game due to the Netflix CG movie in 2021, a new Hollywood movie, and so on.
  • Capcom expects the game to sell 11 million copies by March 2025.
  • Resident Evil 4 Remake leaked far too early. It still has a lot to go in terms of development.
  • Resident Evil Outbreak was a mistranslation, it is actually Resident Evil Revelations 3.
  • Dusk suggests he knows about the Biohazard Apocalypse game while he had no idea of the Hank spin-off.

Here are some of the Resident Evil projects that were leaked. This doesn’t list Resident Evil 8 which is out in 2021 but still has no release window set for it.

  • Resident Evil Outrage (Q4 FY21) – This is Resident Evil Revelations 3 according to Dusk Golem
  • Resident Evil 4 Remake (Q4 FY22)
  • Biohazard Apocalypse (Q3 FY23)
  • Resident Evil Hank (Q4 FY24)

For fans of the series, there are a lot of games to look forward to in the future. Unfortunately, some of the long-dormant Capcom IPs like Dino Crisis or even Dead Rising appears to be in limbo based on the schedule that has leaked so far.
