Today in “take this with a small ocean’s worth of grains of salt” news, a first-person Resident Evil 8 is rumored to be on the way. This comes via regular leaker AestheticGamer, aka Dusk Golem, who has been right about things like Resident Evil 3 Remake coming sooner than we expected and not so right about there being multiple Silent Hill games in development.

What he has to say about the next Resident Evil is that it began life as Resident Evil 8, but for most of its development was rebranded as a spin-off, a gap-filler that would have been called Resident Evil Revelations 3 (the Revelations name being used for side games that do things a little differently, like the excellent Resident Evil Revelations 2). Apparently Capcom were so impressed by an early version of the game that they decide to pull it back into being a mainline Resident Evil.
