Capcom is hosting a Resident Evil Showcase next week which will broadcast brand new footage, details, and gameplay for Resident Evil Village.
The stream will take place at 2 PM PST (5 PM EST / 10 PM GMT / 11 PM CET) on Thursday, January 21. The broadcast is due to be hosted by What’s Good Games co-founder (and dedicated Resident Evil fan) Brittney Brombacher, and promises plenty of new content for the upcoming title.

Along with new gameplay details, there’s a good chance we’ll also get official confirmation of the Resident Evil Village release date as well. A massive Capcom leak last year saw the game marked as arriving in April this year. Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, however, delays are certainly possible and there's no guarantee that April date will stick. Whether we’ll hear anything about a PS4 or Xbox One version of the game also remains to be seen. At last year’s Tokyo Game Show, the lead development team stated that they’d love to bring the next-gen title to older platforms, but it really depended on the amount of time they had to work on the game before launch.
We’ve previously seen Resident Evil Village gameplay during the game’s early reveal and as part of a PlayStation advert featuring tennis superstar star Naomi Osaka. Next week’s showcase is shaping up to be the most in-depth reveal yet, so Resident Evil and Capcom fans certainly won’t want to miss out.
To recap, the Resident Evil Showcase covering Resident Evil Village will be broadcast next Tuesday, January 21 at 2 PM PST (5 PM EST / 10 PM GMT / 11 PM CET). Resident Evil Village is currently slated for a 2021 release, with no firm date just yet.
