Resident Evil 8 May Be the Longest Modern Resi Game

New information from a noted Resident Evil leaker suggests Resident Evil Village has plenty to sink your teeth into.

Capcom's been silent on Resident Evil Village since the new Resident Evil game first debuted during Sony's Future of Gaming PlayStation 5 event. Though that hasn't changed, RE leaker AestheticGamer — spotted by Video Games Chronicle — dropped a new bit of alleged information about the project, namely that Resident Evil Village will be the longest Resident Evil game using Capcom's new RE Engine.

The same applies to the rumored-and-half-confirmed Resident Evil 4 remake in the works, as well as other unspecified projects using the RE Engine.

If this info turns out to be correct, Resident Evil Village will be longer than Resident Evil 7, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and the recent Resident Evil 3 remake. In fact, criticism over RE3 remake's length and cut content is what prompted AestheticGamer's comment. Otherwise, they said they'd been asked not to say much about it or the other games teased in the comment.

As VGC noted, Devil May Cry 5 was built on the RE Engine and clocks in at roughly 11 hours. So after performing some very difficult and arcane mathematics, we can safely say RE Village will be at least 11 hours and one minute long.

How that pans out is anyone's guess, since we still know very little about Resident Evil Village, but this info does at least suggest RE8 will boast a meaty single-player campaign. Again, though, take all of this with a grain of salt until further information comes to light, which Capcom is planning to release soon.

Hopefully, we won't have long to wait. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Resident Evil Village news as it develops.

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.
