Resident Evil Village Early Access Invites Are Fake, Warns Capcom
With myself and the majority of the internet waiting patiently for Lady Dimitrescu to affectionately murder us in the upcoming Resident Evil Village game, it was only a matter of time before some nefarious party sought to take advantage of our blind adoration in an attempt to scam us. The ploy this time around is in the form of fake Early Access invites, with Capcom recently releasing a statement addressing these fake invites in an attempt to mitigate the damage.
As reported by Twisted Voxel, Capcom has released a statement in regards to the fake Resident Evil Village Early Access invites being sent to people via email. “We’re sending this message as we’ve been made aware that there are currently emails circulating that pretend to contain ‘Early Access invitations’ to Resident Evil Village. The sender address is being displayed as ‘no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com’, ” the press release reads.
We want to inform you that these messages are NOT from Capcom and appear to be phishing attempts by an unauthorized third party. If you have received such a message, please DO NOT download any files or reply, and delete the message immediately.”
This isn’t the first time Capcom has had to deal with the darker side of the internet. Late last year, a massive leak that resulted in the reveal of several in-progress titles that include a Resident Evil 4 VR game. More on that can be found right here.
Resident Evil Village is slated to release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on May 7, 2021. The ‘Maiden’ demo is now available exclusively for the PS5.
