Despite his recent retirement from the role that made him famous on Twitter and around the web, the well-known insider Dusk Golem returns to talk about Resident Evil Village, the next chapter of one of the gaming brands he is most fond of, revealing Capcom’s expectations on the game and also giving some personal insights into the future of this historic horror franchise.
After having talked extensively about the alleged remake of Resident Evil 4 and a possible sequel to the Resident Evil Revelations 3, Dusk Golem tells now how the Japanese software house is investing heavily in this eighth chapter of the main series and that it will aim very high both for its content and for its sales.
Following the huge success of the Resident Evil 2 remake and Resident Evil VII, which has also become the best-selling game in the series, Capcom hopes to ride the wave of these triumphs to propel the new chapter to another big success of this historic brand. According to the aforementioned insider, who has already proved to be very credible with his information and leaks in the past, Resident Evil Village will be a fantastic experience and its launch would be expected in the first months of 2021, more precisely in the month of May.
In the various discussions related to Resident Evil Village, Dusk Golem has also confirmed that the title will be much more “meatier” in content and that in general, it will have better reviews than its predecessor, confirming that Capcom is very confident in the quality of the game.
(2/2) is due to three main factors:
-Capcom realized they had struck gold with the game.
-Game is meatier & probably will review & be received better than RE7 was.
-High series & entry interest with Infinite Darkness, the new movie, etc.
RE8 will probably be fantastic.

For now, all fans will be able to do nothing but wait for some new announcement from Capcom, to finally find out when they can get their hands on Resident Evil Village.
