Resident Evil 8 was Resident Evil Revelations 3, will have Hallucinations, Occultism & 3 “stalkers”

Industry insider, Dusk Golem, has shared/leaked some new details about the next part in the Resident Evil franchise. According to Dusk Golem, Resident Evil 8 was originally meant to be Resident Evil Revelations 3. However, and since the “real” Resident Evil 8 game is a few years away, Capcom has decided to re-title Revelations 3 to Resident Evil 8.

What’s really interesting here is that Resident Evil 8 will release in 2021. Not only that, but Dusk Golem believes that Capcom will reveal this new RE game in the next few months. The original plan was to reveal Resident Evil 8 at E3 2020. However, and since this event is not happening, he doesn’t know exactly when the announcement will be made.

Resident Evil 8 will be cross-gen, meaning that it will hit both current-gen and next-gen platforms. It will feature a first-person perspective and most of the themes from the previous leaks will be present. However, and as Capcom continues working on it, some elements may change. You can find the previous Resident Evil 8 leaks here and here.

Furthermore, the game will have more supernatural themes than sci-fi elements. For instance, players can expect hallucinations, occultism, insanity and not being able to trust other people.

Dusk Golem has also shared some additional gameplay details on the Resetera forum. According to him, the game will have three “stalkers”. The first stalker was present in the Ambassador demo people played in February 2020. That stalker was a Witch that laughs a lot and dissipates into a swarm of insects when you shoot at her.

“She’s kinda’ different than the normal RE stalker types (as are the other two), she is more of a trickster and likes to mess with you.”
