Could the time be coming soon?
The Resident Evil series has been something of a leaky ship over the last few years. While we won’t know how true details are, a lot about the upcoming Resident Evil 8 has allegedly leaked. Now, a listing for the game has appeared at a German retailer, though who knows what it could mean.
The German retailer in question is GamesOnly. The listing has since been taken down, but the internet never forgets, and you can see the listing as it was posted below. There’s not much here, no release date, only the price and some “non-official artwork.” You can tell this listing was at least somewhat influenced by the leaks, since the artwork features the rumored name of Village with the first four letters stylized as VIII (a similar gimmick as Resident Evil 7). The description is also an almost word for word recreation of a leaker’s vague description of the game.
With that in mind, it’s hard to say if this means anything about the game being announced soon, but we do know that Capcom is planning something on June 10th with the RE Ambassador program. If rumors are true, they are planning to release Resident Evil 8 sometime between January-March of next year, so the time is definitely coming for it to be revealed.
