In 2021, Capcom will continue to delight the fans of Resident Evil, and, according to sources, Resident Evil 8 release date will be 2021.
Release date for the Resident Evil 8
According to insider Dusk Golem, Resident Evil 8 will be released in 2021 for the current and new-gen consoles. Microsoft and Sony said they plan to release their new consoles at the end of 2020, so that the release can occur simultaneously on all platforms.
Okay, so the little game is done. This will be breaking this month with more details later not by myself, but I've needed to clear some stuff up. "Resident Evil 2021" is Resident Evil 8, but it wasn't always RE8. During most of its development it existed as Revelations 3.

Like Resident Evil 7 (2017), the eighth part is distinguished by a first-person view and is about the adventures of Ethan Winters. At the same time, the series is waiting for two new things.
According to the source, we will see mechanics of hallucinations and madness in Resident Evil 8. Perhaps Capcom decided to take a couple of ideas from Amnesia, where the main character could lose his mind if he was in the dark for a long time or next to monsters.
We will also see mythical monsters, such as werewolves in the game. Capcom was already experimenting with mysticism while developing an early version of Resident Evil 4, which is now known as Resident Evil 3.5. According to the plot, Leon also fell into the estate, but he was already fighting with ghosts, not zombies.
