According to the rumors currently circulating in the video game community, Resident Evil Revelations 3 is going to be released as a Nintendo Switch-focused game.
Dedicated fans know that the Resident Evil franchise is a longstanding one; a series since the ’90s that’s full of gore, plot twists, and jump scares. Since gaming platforms and consoles have improved and changed throughout the years, so have the Resident Evil titles.
Despite the changes, there’s one thing that remains true until today: Capcom still ensures that the gameplay and graphics of the titles it releases offer players a thrilling and intense ride from the beginning all the way through the end.
Just last week, Capcom was the unfortunate victim of a massive hack. However, it was due to this hack that players found out that the studio is planning to release a new Resident Evil game by the last quarter of 2021.
The upcoming Resident Evil: Village wasn’t the only entry in the franchise that was found on the list, which reportedly has a release date now due to the hacked data. Among the list of games was another Resident Evil game titled Resident Evil Outrage.
That being said, a reliable Capcom insider debunked this title, confirming that a new Resident Evil title is in the works but it will most likely be named Resident Evil Revelations 3.
The Capcom insider in question is known as Dusk Golem, and they have since expanded more on this news on the Reset Era forum. According to the informer, Resident Evil Revelations 3 is allegedly going to be a “Switch-focused RE game.”
To clarify, it’s not going to be released exclusively on the Nintendo Switch — Resident Evil Revelations 3 is still going to launch on other platforms, but its development mainly had the Nintendo Switch in mind.
That being said, Capcom still hasn’t confirmed whether or not it’s true that the Nintendo Switch will be the lead console for the rumored title. As such, this information, albeit from a reliable insider, should still be considered with a grain of salt.
There was a rumor last month that Resident Evil 3 might be heading to Nintendo’s portable handheld console via Cloud streaming. This rumor was conceived because dataminers were able to uncover the alleged cover art of the game within the files of Control’s Cloud version.
Unfortunately, there are no new updates regarding this. In any case, Dusk Golem has proven time and time again to be a reliable source, so let’s just hope that they will once again come through this time around for fans of Resident Evil and the horror genre in general.
Without a doubt, all these leaks and rumors regarding Capcom and its planned games will hurt the company. After all, the company’s plans for the next four years have been revealed for all to see and scrutinize, leaving no room for surprises.
The Resident Evil franchise will be celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, and we can imagine that Capcom was planning to reveal these new games in celebration of that event. In any case, we’re sure that dedicated fans will still be looking forward to the official announcement regarding Resident Evil Revelations 3.
