A user on Twitter called EVIL VR claims that they are an insider and they have news regarding Resident Evil VIII. Fans have been talking about a new Resident Evil game because Capcom recently released the Resident Evil 2 remake which was a huge success. So, the idea of another Resident Evil isn’t without a good reason.
Now, EVIL VR tweeted that Resident Evil VII will be released after RE 3 which means that there will be another remake. But, don’t expect any remakes for RE4, RE5 and RE6.
They revealed that Resident Evil VIII would be indeed a sequel to RE 7 and it takes place in an island.
There were also speculations of the hook-man returning to RE 8, but it turns out that only some concepts of the hook-man will be returning.
It’s fair to say that the RE 2 remake isn’t going to be the end of the series as it was a massive success for Capcom. However, this isn’t confirmed yet, and it is a rumor for now.
