Resident Evil Village details were recently divulged in a Famitsu interview with producers Tsuyoshi Kanda and Pete Fabiano. The interview was translated and shared on Twitter by Resident Evil historian Alex Aniel. There were a few interesting tidbits revealed about the upcoming game, including how Village will conclude Ethan’s story, which started in Resident Evil 7: biohazard.
According to the translated interview, Resident Evil Village is about 60% complete and has been in development for about 3.5 years. It also serves as the conclusion to Ethan Winter’s story that started in Resident Evil 7: biohazard; however, the developer didn’t make it clear which of the two mid-game choices is canon. In Resident Evil 7, you’re asked to choose who to save between your wife and another character, which results in some striking differences. They also said that the title emphasizes the village because it is “another protagonist” in the game.
Village also brings back two staples of the RE franchise–inventory management and puzzle solving–but no specifics were given. They also said that making the game exclusively for next-gen allowed them to make loading times nearly nonexistent, giving the game a deeper level of immersion. Unfortunately, they didn’t expand on what they meant by this.
Resident Evil Village releases in 2021 on Xbox Series X, PS5, and PC.
