Capcom Announces E3 Plans Include… Resident Evil Village?

It’s that time again — E3, the season of massive hype, and extreme disappointment (there’s rarely any in-between). This year promises to be one of the biggest in a long time, and hold-over titles from E3’s cancellation last year may finally make an appearance, with many on fans shortlists (including Elden Ring, Metroid Prime 4, and many others). Unlike previous years, our favorite games studio Capcom will be holding their own streaming event, separate from the usual reveals during console showcases (such as last year’s Resident Evil Village reveal during the PlayStation showcase). Capcom have just revealed their lineup and it’s absolutely awesome, with upcoming titles like The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Monster Hunter Stories 2, and… Resident Evil Village?

Join us for the Capcom showcase at E3 2021 for news on our latest games lineup, including:

? The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
? Monster Hunter Stories 2
? Monster Hunter Rise
? Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village released over a month ago now, (to much critical acclaim), so it’s… quite surprising to see it listed amongst their E3 lineup. Fans have been quick to speculate about what this could mean, and what exactly could be being showcased here, so I’ve broken down the most popular suspects, and their likelihood of actually happening:

  • An ad for Resident Evil Village: I know this sounds extremely cynical, but I wouldn’t at all be surprised if Village’s presence was simply a trailer, most likely just the launch trailer, smack in the middle of their E3 stream. Considering the months of repeatedly showing the game’s second trailer over and over again (and the re-emphasis of the game’s naming convention), it would track with Capcom’s previous handling of the game’s marketing. Hopefully not this one.

There’s just a few more days until the Capcom showcase stream, which is of course on June 14th, 10:30PM BST / 11:30PM CEST. We’re waiting with bated breath.
