Capcom, as you might recall, suffered a massive leak not long ago. It seemingly confirmed a number of projects are on the way – including a game called Resident Evil Outbreak, which is scheduled for Q4 2021.
According to well-known Capcom insider Dusk Golem – who has made a number of accurate predictions in recent times – this game is actually Resident Evil Revelations 3 (even if it doesn’t go by this name) and perhaps more interestingly, will be a “Switch-focused RE game” – with the hybrid system being the lead platform. Here’s exactly what they had to say via ResetEra:
“I sorta’ weighed the options, I think long-term people believing there’s an Outbreak 3 and it not existing may hurt more than help, but I also got 100% confirmation Outrage is RE switch. It may not be called Rev 3 when it releases, but it is for all intents and purposes, and its the Switch-focused RE game (not Switch exclusive though, it’s coming to everything, Switch was the lead platform though). I know you know this, just decided & think it’s coming out to the public anyways.”
Earlier this year in August, Dusk Golem said Capcom would be release a new Monster Hunter game on the Switch soon and that it would be running on a Switch compatible version of the RE Engine instead of the company’s older MT Framework engine. Later on in September, Capcom announced Monster Hunter Rise – running on its RE Engine – would be arriving exclusively on the Nintendo Switch in March next year.
The last entry in the revelations series was Resident Evil Revelations 2 – an episodic take on the survival horror series which originally launched in 2015 and eventually showed up on the Switch in 2017.
