After the 7th part of the game, 7 years pass away and then the dramatic and horrific events of a mysterious thing start again. This is where the story of Resident Evil Village starts. Ethan gets suspicious about these events and walks down to franchise-favorite Chris Redfield.
Ethan is then headed towards a mysterious village in Europe in search of his answers, where a lot of creepy things are already taking place. Going on with the plot of the entire game series, this time also we can expect zombies and mutant zombies in the game who will be much more powerful. There will be a lot of mysteries to investigate and find the root cause behind such happening and how to stop them.

Capcom has not yet confirmed an official date for the release of the game. There was a ransomware attack on Capcom that has leaked a few pieces of information about the release date. The game is expected to land anytime in April 2021, according to the information leaked by the ransomware attack. However, Capcom has not confirmed if the information is correct, neither have they discarded it. They have only confirmed that there was a ransomware attack, so nothing could be stated exactly.
