Resident Evil Fans Aren't Happy About Project Resistance

fans arne't happy about project resistance

Last week, Capcom started teasing the next Resident Evil game, which, based on leaked screenshots, was clearly a co-op or multiplayer title of some kind. This led some fans to believe that the new game would be a Resident Evil: Outbreak reboot, but instead it's been revealed to be a completely new kind of Resident Evil multiplayer experience. Currently known as Project Resistance, the new Resident Evil spinoff is a 4v1 asymmetric multiplayer horror game, and that revelation has not sat well with some fans of the franchise.

Shortly after the reveal that Project Resistance is a 4v1 multiplayer game, a number of fans on Twitter expressed their disapproval. Some accused Capcom of "ripping off" games like Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th instead of focusing on a true Resident Evil-style game. Others expressed disappointment because they thought Project Resistance was a new Outbreak game, and were looking forward to a pure co-op experience instead of a mix of versus and co-op.

Not everyone has been negative about Project Resistance, though. Some fans recognize that the game is just a spinoff and not likely to take Capcom's attention away from traditional Resident Evil experiences. After all, Resident Evil 2 launched just this past January, and reports indicate that a Resident Evil 3 remake is in the works as well.

In fact, a notable Resident Evil leaker believes that Project Resistance actually started its life as a Resident Evil 3 remake multiplayer mode, only to spin off into being its own thing. Whether or not there's any truth behind that remains to be seen, but if so, it could be a good indication that the rumored Resident Evil 3 remake is well into development. It doesn't seem like we'll learn about it at Tokyo Game Show, but maybe Capcom will unveil it at an upcoming event like The Game Awards in December.

While fan reception to Project Resistance is mixed at best, it's possible that public opinion on the game will change once players actually get their hands on it. There will be a Project Resistance beta next month, giving fans the opportunity to try this new Resident Evil multiplayer project ahead of launch.

Project Resistance is in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
