Capcom hasn’t made any official announcements yet, but Dusk Golem has often proved reliable when it comes to the world of Resident Evil. Obviously we are only talking about rumors that are anything but certified that we invite you to take with a grain of salt.
The story of Resident Evil Village, according to the latest rumors, will take place seven years after the previous chapter. We will be called again to put on the shoes of Ethan Winters and his path will cross with that of Christopher “Chris” Redfield, after the two had met at the end of the seventh chapter. Their new meeting, in Village, however, will not be the best as evidenced by the launch trailer. The setting will be a clear change of course compared to the past, since we will be dealing with seven and what would appear to be gods werewolves. No zombies or biological weaponstherefore, and it could make many historical fans of the saga turn up their noses.
According to some rumors, Capcom would be working in parallel with the sequel by Resident Evil 7to the remake of the fourth chapter (in our previous article we explain why the idea does not convince us), and ad another remake still shrouded in mystery. For now, no news on a possible remake of Dino Crisis.
