An insider claims that the leak isn’t quite what it seems.
It’s been quite the couple of weeks for Capcom. A massive data leak has come that potentially reveals a huge slate of their games that are being worked on for the next few years, and a lot of employee data could also be at risk. It’s far beyond the usual leak, and people have been combing through the various different things. One thing that stuck out was a listing for Resident Evil Outrage, making many people wonder if an Outbreak remake or new entry was on the horizon. Well, one of the Capcom insiders has weighed in.
If you aren’t familiar, the Outbreak subseries of the franchise was a pair of titles released on the PS2. While they could be played solo, they were meant for multiplayer as you and a group of other players navigated through several areas during the Raccoon City incident. Dusk Golem, a Capcom insider who ‘retired’ earlier this year has seemingly returned to clarify some aspects of the leak. When asked about the Outrage leak, he said that was actually Revelations 3.
The Revelations games were yet another subseries, but one that tied in more directly to the mainline story. The first game took place in-between RE4 and 5 with the second one taking place between 5 and 6 and starred some of the main characters of the franchise who had not been used for a while, mixed in with some new faces.
As you can see below, Dusk Golem doesn’t offer any details beyond this. So it’s unclear if he’s staying that the Outrage aspect is just a codename or if Revelations 3 will in some way tie in with the older Outbreak titles in some form. Of course, even though Golem has a generally solid track record with these leaks, we also have to take it all with a grain of salt. As of now, the focus is on Resident Evil Village, which is looking likely to launch around April of next year. We probably won’t know anything about the game being discussed here until at least then.
It's Revelations 3, not Outbreak 3. I won't say more than that for now though. https://t.co/Yl6peklnbX
