Resident Evil 8 Release Date: Latest rumours, Leaks, First Person and more

Endless cancellations, delays and disappointments (we're still feeling the pain with Sony's latest announcement) seem to be making up the majority of the news nowadays.

But thanks to leakers, we can sink our talons into some fresh info about one of the globe's most exciting games - Resident Evil.

Recently, a leaker has shared information on a potential release date for Resident Evil 8. Let's take a look at what he had to say.


Coming next year

Currently, Resident Evil 3 Remake, the follow up to the hugely successful Resident Evil 2 Remake, is going down an absolute storm. Check out our review here.

The leaker, who goes by AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, shared some information about Resident Evil being released next year in 2021.

RELIABLE? The leaker has been on the money in the past


First Person

Amongst this, he also had this to say about another, controversial feature that may be appearing in the game.

"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 first person view received mixed reviews from fans of the series, however it could be interesting to see how they've refined the experience for 2021.

What can we take away from this?

As with all leaks, a somewhat sceptical lens should be applied - however, encouragingly, Dusk Golem was correct about Resident Evil 3 Remake releasing earlier than expected.

Perhaps Golem can be trusted this time around?

For all the latest on Resident Evil keep checking in for updates as we get them!
