While Capcom has achieved great success with Resident Evil 2 Remake and looks to be poised to strike lightning once more with the upcoming Resident Evil 3 Remake, It seems the next major entry in the franchise — Resident Evil  8 — will be following Resident Evil 7 — at least in terms of being in first-person. The rumor comes from reliable video game leaker Nibel, who has today leaked a bunch of Resident Evil 8 details

Take the following RE 8 details below with a grain of salt as none of this has been verified by Capcom. Nonetheless, check the leak courtesy of Nibel:

Ethan from Resident Evil VII is the protagonist
First Person game
Zombies return (Obviously)
New Enemy are Werewolves
New Stalker Enemy type
Chris Redfield will return

Further adding to this rumor, Eurogamer reports from their source that Resident 8 will be a first-person title as well.

This news may come as a disappointment to fans expecting Resident Evil 8 to be a more traditional Resident Evil game, though it is just a rumor at this time. Meaning there’s some hope we will get something more along the lines of the remakes. And if it does go the first person route, hopefully, there’s a third-person option that Capcom will supply to try and cater to old fans. We’ll be sure to keep you posted if any more details surface.
