Resident Evil Village May Release Next April

Written by on | OpenCritic

We may now have an idea on when Resident Evil Village will release.

Earlier this month some of the Capcom Group networks were hacked. Capcom is working with the police to carry out an investigation and are taking measures to restore their systems. While no customer information was breached, a few details on some of Capcom's upcoming plans were leaked. It should be noted that some of the notes seem to be from pre-COVID-19 files, so some plans may have changed. 

One of the biggest bits of information leaked was the release window for Resident Evil Village. According to the leak, the game will release in April of next year, and will be hitting current-gen consoles. There supposedly will be a demo for the game before it releases. It was also revealed that a multiplayer Resident Evil title codenamed Project Highway / Village Online is in the works. It is a battle royale type of title, and will release in September of next year. Resident Evil 4 also seems to be planned for the Oculus VR. According to the leak, it is separate from the Resident Evil 4 remake project. 

A few other bits of information about non-Resident Evil projects were leaked as well. This includes two Monster Hunter titles for PC and Switch, both of which are aiming to release next year. A new project codenamed "GUILLOTINE" is in development for the Nintendo Switch with a February 2021 release window. The game will come to other platforms in May. Ace Attorney 7 is also in development, and is targeted to release next year. You can see all of the notes for the leak here

Resident Evil Village takes place years after Resident Evil 7. Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan has started over with his wife Mia, living in peace and putting the past behind them. However, Chris Redfield suddenly disrupts their lives, leading a devastated Ethan into a new and twisted nightmare as he searches for answers. 

Resident Evil Village will release next year for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
