Resident Evil 8 Village was originally set to release in early 2021. Capcom has yet to reveal an exact date for the game so this stream could be the announcement. The company has been going through a rough time recently with gameplay and dev build leaks resulting from a ransomware attack late last year. Loads of content leaked online including in-game screenshots of characters and environments. The sooner Resident Evil 8 Village leaks the faster we can all move on and enjoy the game. The upcoming horror game is set to launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The developer was previously looking into releasing the game on last-gen consoles but has not confirmed it yet.
