Capcom has revealed that they will be announcing the next Resident Evil title coming next month. The announcement comes in the form of a teaser website now open to the public with the name “Project Resistance” displayed across the page. It appears as though the new title will be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC with a full reveal of the game arriving on September 9, 2019 at 8AM PT/11AM ET.
Along with the announcement of the new game will be an announcement trailer which will go live on the Resident Evil YouTube channel. The new game will also be on full display during this year’s upcoming Tokyo Game Show event which runs from September 12 through the 15, 2019 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Tokyo.
The display at Tokyo Game Show will feature the game’s developers as they show off the first look of the game to a worldwide audience. For those lucky audience members in attendance, the game will also be able to try out the new game but not before first signing up for the advanced registration.
There’s been a lot of speculation as to what Capcom will be trying out next in the long-running horror survival series. After the monumental success of both Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, it’s seems up int he air. There was also what seemed like a hint towards a Resident Evil 3 Remake earlier this year, and considering the fan feedback after experiencing the incredible remake of the second title in the series – it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Capcom continue their success with a third remake.
However, there’s also some talk about how Capcom will tackle the next title in the series. While the series has been known more for its third-person camera angle, the first-person view worked remarkably well in the seventh installment. Regardless, it seems as though Capcom has options for their next move and it’s certainly exciting to wonder what lies ahead for the Resident Evil series.
Stay tuned for more details on what to expect from the next Resident Evil title and what “Project Resistance” exactly is.
