Resident Evil 8 Release Window Possibly Leaked
Resident Evil fans have been patiently awaiting any sort of announcement from Capcom regarding the next installment in the popular horror franchise. Ever since the arrival of the seventh entry, we’ve only received two remakes, but it looks like that might be changing as a recent leak points to Resident Evil 8 being released in the first quarter of 2021.
Notable Resident Evil leaker AestheticGamer, who has accurately leaked previous RE-related news, recently took to Twitter to drop a couple of details about the upcoming release. According to them, Resident Evil 8 was planned for a January 2021, but the current situation with the global pandemic may have affected Capcom’s plans. They then went on to say how they think the release may now planned for sometime from January to March.
I guess I can share this before a nap. RE8 was supposed to be released next January, to see if that holds true due to the change in workflow due to world Corona circumstances this year though. My guess is the release will end up being in the late January-March territory.
