After the rumor that Resident Evil 8 remake will be out only after Resident Evil 3 Remake, here is something interesting regarding this upcoming mainline Resident Evil game.
Earlier this week, we covered an article about the potential story and concept of Resident Evil 8. Today, we are going to share something from a more credible source. The person who gave this information goes by the name Dusk Golem on popular gaming forum ResetERA.
Dusk Golem made an interesting comment when asked about the upcoming Resident Evil 8, and how Resident Evil 3 Remake is already in development at Capcom. This is something that has been rumored by a few other different sources as well.
“I’ve promised not to say too much on REmake 3 for now, but RE8 is almost definitely going to be a next-gen title for what it’s worth,” said Dusk Golem in a post that was made in response to a user asking Resident Evil 8 release.
“RE8 and REmake 3 and one other unannounced RE project are in the works right now. While nothing is set in stone since things change in development and some of these are 2-3 years away, most likely (and if things go on schedule) there will be a new RE game in 2020, then in 2021, and then in 2022, but don’t take this as word of gospel since a project that’s three years away for example could experience any number of changes, delays, or being pushed forward in three years.”
Going back to an earlier source of the Resident Evil 8 rumor, the twitter account Evil VR had shared a potential VR-focused Resident Evil spin-off being in development at Capcom. If Resident Evil 8 is indeed using a third-person camera view than Capcom could make a first-person Resident Evil spin-off that could be a good supplement for those who want another VR-focused Resident Evil game.
Resident Evil using first-person camera view is not a new development and has been traditionally associated with the Gun Survivors spin-off series. However, the Evil VR account alleges that this one won’t be related to the Survivors spin-off series.
Resident Evil 2 Remake is quite a success for Capcom and they announced recently that the game shipped 3 million copies in its debut week. They have also announced a free update dropping later in February called The Ghost Survivors and new costumes that will unlock the PS1 style outfits for Leon and Claire.
