Resident Evil 8 is rumored to be a cross-gen title, releasing for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X when the time comes.




  • A source indicates Resident Evil 8 will be a cross-gen game, releasing on PlayStation 4, 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Not much is known about the franchise’s next installment, though, as rumors arising from a Capcom financial presentation have been bouncing around online indicating a release window of 2021. Reinforcing this possibility, a Twitter user leaked information regarding the game’s production schedule, speculating the game would release anywhere between late January and March 2021. However, no official information has been released by Capcom.
    Despite not much being known about Resident Evil 8, the gaming community is abuzz with talks about everything that could possibly be true regarding the entry. More than a release window has been speculated about the game, with the title’s potential protagonist and enemy details possibly having leaked in January 2020. However, with Capcom being tight-lipped about the project, nothing has been confirmed.



    According to AestheticGamer – the same source who leaked the possibility of a launch between January and March 2021 – via Twitter, Resident Evil 8 will be a cross-gen game, meaning the title will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. While discussing potential dates for a new Silent Hill game reveal, AestheticGamer delved intoResident Evil 8’s cross-gen status, as well as speculating that August will likely be the latest the game is revealed. However, AestheticGamer believes Resident Evil 8’s reveal is more likely to occur in June 2020.

    Most comments on Twitter revolve around pondering the likelihood of a June reveal and conveying excitement about the possibility. Between AestheticGamer, other insiders, and commenters, rumors say the most likely reveal date for Resident Evil 8 is June 4, 2020. AestheticGamer claims to have received his information from individuals who work with studios involved with both Resident Evil 8 and Silent Hill discussions, and the user trusts their sources and believes they are in a position to know the information they provided.
    The Resident Evil franchise has received a wealth of revitalized hype with the release of theResident Evil 2 and 3 remakes. With a Resident Evil 4 remake in the works, it’s not outlandish to believe Resident Evil 8’s reveal is imminent, or at least a possibility in the near-future. However, the recent cancellation of the PlayStation 5 makes a June 4 reveal of Resident Evil 8far less likely. Whether AestheticGamer’s sources are providing misinformation or not remains to be seen, but the Twitter user is a trusted source of information for a reason. Regardless, speculation and rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt.

Some more LEAKED RE8 info.

Again, leaked and should be taken with a grain of salt until official.

TL: DR - RE8 will be a direct story sequel to RE7, will involve Ethan, Mia and Chris Redfield and tackle more 'supernatural' elements similar to the canceled RE4 prototype with the hook man (video below the RE8 video)

This is the original RE4 prototype which got scrapped some ways into development:

So would this be another FPS entry? After playing the fantastic RE2 remake I just wish they go back to the good old Resi formula.

Resident Evil Village has a Resident Evil 4-style inventory and merchant
First gameplay of the next Resident Evil looks familiar (in good ways)

Capcom premiered first gameplay from Resident Evil Village, the eighth main entry in the survival horror franchise, during its Resident Evil Showcase on Thursday, giving fans a glimpse at the direct sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard. It appears that Village will be heavily influenced by another game in the franchise, the beloved Resident Evil 4, based on its setting, characters, and inventory system.

While Village will retain the first-person perspective of RE7 — and its protagonist, Ethan Winters — the sequel is dripping with RE4 vibes, from its village setting to its quirky in-game merchant. Here’s what we learned about Resident Evil Village today, based on a new trailer and a brief gameplay segment.

ETHAN RETURNS
We’ve known that Ethan Winters, the everyman hero of RE7, will return for Village. Now we know why: He’s searching for his kidnapped daughter. And it appears Resident Evil veteran Chris Redfield may be … behind that kidnapping? Ethan must make his way from the surrounding village to the similarly spooky castle, where a Giant Vampire Mom (real name: Lady Dimitrescu) and her man-bloodthirsty vampiric daughters reside.

Ethan will have plenty of weapons at his disposal, like pistols, shotguns, and rifles. He can also act defensively, guarding against melee attacks similar to Resident Evil 7.

BIG RESIDENT EVIL 4 VIBES
Resident Evil 4-style inventory-management-Tetris returns to the franchise. Players will also be able to craft items like first aid kits and ammunition.

But it’s the mutated villagers and creepy castle of Village that feel a lot like we’re stepping back into the world of Resident Evil 4. The castle of Village is incredibly detailed and ornately decorated, and seemingly run by an evil, cultish family, with the mysterious Mother Miranda at the very top. The decaying and dilapidated house of RE7 is gone; Village brings back that classic Resident Evil mansion atmosphere, with suits of armor, marble statues, and an ostentatious foyer that will likely serve as your entry point into the castle.

Village will also bring back a merchant character. This one’s named The Duke. According to producer Pete Fabiano, The Duke will buy and sell weapons and other supplies. He’s “an interesting fella,” Fabiano says, and will show up throughout the course of the game — seemingly protected from vampire threats by cloves of garlic.

FRANCHISE STAPLES
Resident Evil Village doesn’t appear to have traditional zombie-like characters. Instead, the threats appear to be inspired by werewolves and vampires, with the occasional El Gigante-sized giant villager with a mean-looking hammer.


Players will also have to destroy sundry vases and decorative objects with their trusty knife to find supplies (green herbs, etc.) hidden throughout the castle. Players will also have to keep an eye peeled for collectibles. Like the Mr. Everywhere statues of RE7 and Mr. Raccoon figures of Resident Evil 2, tiny wooden goats will be strewn throughout the village and castle, eager to drain your limited ammo supply.

Here’s what else Capcom announced today:

Resident Evil Village will be released worldwide on May 7, 2021, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

After the popularity of RE 7, it was kind of given that they would go for the FPS route. The experience was amazing none the less.

I hope it stays first person. It makes for an objectively more immersive experience and RE7 was better for it.

Digital Foundry have a quick video out about the demo



- 4K using reconstruction
- RT reflections
- Some textures are low quality (likely an artifact of cross-gen development)
- Targets 60 FPS but prone to drops

    Series x is available here yes but slightly overpriced at 120,000rs

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    because here pretty much everything is out of stock. Series S seems to come back to stock the most often, but I guess its because its either the cheapest one for MS to manufacture, or people want it the least of the 3 next-gen consoles.
