Capcom Announces Resident Evil: Project Resistance, Screens Released

Capcom's got a new Resident Evil game in the works, and it has released a teaser about an announcement date, complete with screenshots.

Capcom teased the announcement of a new title in the Resident Evil franchise, currently codenamed Resident Evil: Project Resistance. Right now, there isn't much detail about what the project could be, but whatever it ends up being, it'll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

In addition to the announcement, Capcom provided a teaser website for Project Resistance and promised an announcement video on YouTube set to air September 9 at 8 a.m. PDT/11 a.m. EDT.

Gematsu used a thumbnail extraction tool to find some thumbnails for said video, which can be seen below.

Project Resistance will also feature as part of Capcom's Tokyo Game Show presentation from September 12 through September 15, though what days it'll be shown off aren't known.

Given the nature of the announcement and the project title, it seems reasonable to assume this won't be Resident Evil 8. Instead, it's probably one of the other side projects Capcom mentioned it was working on earlier in the year during one of its surveys.

It could even be the mystery project Capcom recently recruited people to help test from its RE fan group.

Resident Evil has had an interesting life, to say the least, with plenty of experiments and mutations of its own. While not all of those have worked out the best, Capcom seems on track to finding that sweet spot between innovation and what fans want.

While Project Resistance isn't an RE3 Remake, Capcom's recent trends suggest it'll still be something to help continue pushing the series forward.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
