2021 is going to be a big year for Resident Evil fans, as not only will the franchise celebrate its 25th anniversary — a new installment in the franchise is expected to be released this year in Resident Evil Village. To that end, Capcom has announced a “Resident Evil Showcase” event happening this month — which will give RE fans more exciting news related to the series as well as a brand new trailer for Resident Evil Village!
Here’s the announcement of the RE Showcase event from the official Resident Evil games Twitter page.

Set on the same date the original Resident Evil 2 was released for the Sony PlayStation in 1998, it’s no coincidence that the 2021 will be a big celebration for all things RE and more. The RE Showcase will feature producers of the series as well as gamer and What’s Good Games co-founder Brittney Brombacher as the host of the show. Capcom promises to showcase a guided tour of RE Village, including the first-ever gameplay footage of the game as well as a brand new trailer that will probably hint on what else we can expect from the story featuring the return of RE7 lead Ethan Winters and longtime series protagonist Chris Redfield.
The Resident Evil Showcase is scheduled on January 21, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST. If you haven’t seen the previous set of screenshots released for RE Village, check them out here.
Resident Evil Village is set for release for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC some time in 2021.
