Resident Evil Project Resistance Announced, Full Reveal Coming Next Month
Capcom has announced a new installment of the Resident Evil saga, known under the provisional name of Resident Evil Project Resistance. The title, which can be played from September 12 to 15 at the Tokyo Game Show 2019, will be officially presented a few days before, on September 9, at 5:00 p.m. (CEST) via YouTube.
According to the information provided, the Osaka company will launch this new Resident Evil on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Although they have not specified the launch window of the game, during the Japanese fair they will hold several events on stage to specify everything about the title, which is in a state of sufficient development to be playable.
The announcement has not caught the fans of the saga by surprise, however. Already on August 12, Capcom informed that they were working on a new title of the unannounced saga, a project that will be shown in depth at the end of September in New York only for a few accredited media. The official website of the project is now available.
After the successes of Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, the last two installments of the franchise with a great reception by critics and audiences, Capcom had already been working with that same graphics engine (RE Engine) for some time for future productions. The great state of health of the company, which had a positive balance of 49.9 million dollars at the end of last quarter ended in June, makes it possible for its sagas to be in better shape, such as Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, to continue betting for this pace of releases not so usual in the past.
What is not known is what this Resident Evil Project Resistance is; Any bet is, right now, mere speculation. Fans want a remake of Resident Evil 3, also a hypothetical Resident Evil 8. Next September 9, it will leave all doubts for sure.
The next edition of Tokyo Game Show will take place at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, in Tokyo, from September 12 to 15.
