Resident Evil Village, stylized to include the roman numeral VIII in the title, is the next game in the main Resident Evil series. It is a direct follow-up to Resident Evil 7, but developer and publisher Capcom has been insistent on using its full title rather than an abbreviation like RE8 in order to stress the importance of the mysterious village at the heart of the game. We got our first look at Resident Evil Village during Sony’s PS5 reveal event in June. While we know some detail about the setting, characters, and how it ties in with the previous game, we don’t have a release date or other crucial information just yet.
Here’s what we know about Resident Evil Village so far.
When Does Resident Evil Village Launch?
Resident Evil Village does not have an official release date yet, but we know it’s scheduled to launch sometime in 2021. A points to a possible April 2021 launch, but until we hear from Capcom officially, we cannot verify this information ourselves.
