First off the upcoming entry in the series is set to be titled as Resident Evil: Village. As the website notes, it is a clever way to title the game as 8 in Roman Numeral numbers is VIII and Village has the same opening numbers.

The story will be set in an European environment focusing on one of the beloved Resident Evil characters – -Chris Redfield. The first person pov seems to be returning as well. A new enemy character type, the Witch, is also apprently a thing. She, like Nemesis from RE 3: Remake, will haunt and stalk the player throughout the main campaign.

The leak does once again state that this game is a follow up from Resident Evil 7, so you can expect some crossing over events to take place. With a Spring 2021 release date apparently set, we will have to just wait to see if all of this is true from Capcom. The leaks also suggest that a formal reveal is set within the next couple of months, but with the COVID- 19 pandemic, anything can be changed or delayed.
