At the beginning of the month, Capcom was subjected to a hacker attack, after which the attackers, who stole about 1 TB of data, began to demand an amount of $11 million in bitcoins from the company. Now the network has information about various projects and transactions of the publisher.
For example, apparently, Resident Evil Village is planned to be released in April 2021, and before that, the horror will receive a demo version. So far, the game is officially announced for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC, but Capcom is considering releasing the project on PS4 and Xbox One.
Continuing the theme of Resident Evil: the company is talking about the multiplayer Project Highway or Village Online - it will be some kind of a royal battle. In addition, Capcom is working on Resident Evil 4 for Oculus VR.
In addition, it was revealed that Google paid Capcom $10 million to release Resident Evil 7 and Village on Stadia. At the same time, Sony gave the publisher half the price for VR, temporary exclusivity of add-ons, and demos.
The leak also reveals a couple of new projects: Guillotine could be released in February on Nintendo Switch, and in May on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. And some streamer-focused multiplayer shooter Shield is slated to launch in 2022.
In addition, it seems that Monster Hunter Rise, which will be released on the Nintendo Switch at the end of March (and will receive demos in early 2021), will also arrive on PC — approximately in October. And Monster Hunter Stories 2 may be released in June next year on Switch and PC.
It should be noted that some information was found in old company files dated 2018, which means it may have changed. Capcom has already commented on the situation.
