Capcom launched a Halloween-themed website to celebrate Resident Evil’s 25th Anniversary. It teases several surprises that will go live in lateOctober.
Throughout the rest of October, Capcom plans on rolling out new Resident EvilIn celebration of the 25th anniversary of the long-running franchise, reveals. Resident Evil’s 25th Anniversary has been commemorated by the publisher in many ways. In fact, a limited-time RE crossover in The Division was made available earlier this year.
Behaviour Interactive’s asymmetrical multiplayer horror title Dead by Daylight honored the series by hosting an Resident Evil Chapter. The DLC, which launched this summer, introduced a map of Raccoon city police station, playable characters Chris Redfield (and Claire Redfield) and Resident Evil 3’s Nemesis (a new Dead by Daylight Killer). The biggest milestone in the series’ history was the release of Resident Evil Village. This RE7 sequel brought Ethan Winters, his wife Mia, back into the fold. Capcom has quite the success story on its hands, too, given that RE Village sold 4.5 million units in only a matter of weeks. The publisher plans to release more surprises leading up to Halloween.
A Halloween-themed Resident Evil website has gone live in honor of the 25th anniversary, as spotted by Twitter user Nibel. The new site from Capcom features nine boxes aligned in rows, each one with a date attached that teases an upcoming Resident Evil reveal. Two of the boxes already have been filled in, one for previously displayed merchandise and another for the RE4 VR announcements Oculus and Quest 2. There are seven more mysterious reveals, three of which will be made public on October 21. Capcom penciled in another two announcements for October 22; the final two should arrive on October 25 and October 29. Nibel shared the following tweet:
The website’s merchandise and Resident Evil 4 VR mentions suggest the next seven news items won’t be anything of great consequence. Capcom might have something else in its bag. The publisher never fails to amaze fans, especially when it is Resident Evil.
Last year’s Capcom data breach showed the company had multiple RE projects in development, including titles bearing the codenames of Hank and Biohazard Apocalypse. These mystery games could be released in the next few weeks. We’ll have a wait and see. Plus, there’s RE Village DLC that still needs proper details, though that particular announcement may take a while since its original tease just made the rounds during E3 2021.
