Resident Evil 3 launches tomorrow but already we have new developments concerning the next game in the long-running Resident Evil franchise. Known Capcom leaker Twitter user @AestheticGamer1 shared a range of new details on the next Resident Evil Project. For instance, the leaker shared that the next Resident Evil project will be cross-gen between Xbox One, PS4 and the upcoming Xbox Series X and PS5.

In a series of tweets the leaker also said it will be the biggest departure in the franchise yet:
Fans of the franchise might shudder at the thought of a big departure but let’s remember RE7 was also a big departure from the rest of the franchise in that it was in first person. RE7 was incidentally one of the best received Resident Evil game in years. So a departure from the usual formula is not necessarily a cause for concern.
We will update this article if more details come to light.
