***UPDATE***

Leaked screenshots have surfaced for Project Resistance via the game's own thumbnails for its upcoming trailer on YouTube (opens in new tab), showcasing several unknown characters fighting against off-screen enemies together. 

An industry insider, AllGamesDelta (opens in new tab), has also suggested that Project Resistance is a four-player co-op games set in the Resident Evil universe, which corroborates with what we can see from these images (via PlayStation Universe (opens in new tab)).

See original story below: 

For the last two and a half years, survival horror fans have been waiting for something, anything more to go on for Resident Evil 8 (opens in new tab), the already confirmed sequel to 2017's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (opens in new tab)

For the most part, developer and publisher Capcom has stayed silent, but potential news surfaced when select RE Ambassadors were invited to a closed Resident Evil playtest (opens in new tab) for "a new game in early development" in the landmark horror series. 

Today, Capcom has indeed announced that a new Resident Evil game is on the way, and all will be revealed on September 9 at 2AM PT/5AM ET/10 AM BST with a first teaser trailer for the title streamed live from its own very website here (opens in new tab)

The new game, currently entitled Project Resistance (emphasis on the "Re"), will also be playable at this year's Tokyo Game Show from September 9 - 15, with a variety of live gameplay demos also scheduled to be streamed online throughout that week (you can find the full itinerary here (opens in new tab)).  

While some are speculating that Project Resistance is indeed Resident Evil 8, many are cautiously anticipating another multiplayer spin-off in the vein of 2015's Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, but a domain for ResidentEvilOutbreak.com (opens in new tab) seems to have been recently swooped up by Capcom in recent weeks.

With that in mind, there's a good chance we could be getting another remake following the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake (opens in new tab) earlier this year, or perhaps it's something completely different entirely. Either way, Project Resistance is releasing for PC, PS4, and Xbox One presumably within the next year or so, and we'll find out everything we want to know about the game very soon.
