Rumors have been swirling around Capcom and whether or not the company would be making announcements at the annual Jump Festa celebration later this month. The company is scheduled to be there with demos for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and the Mega Man Zero/ZX collection but fans are hoping for a bit more. It's unknown if Resident Evil will be at the show, but more leaks regarding upcoming projects have hit the internet.
Once again being posted by Nibellion on Twitter, the latest Capcom leak surrounds the Resident Evil franchise. According to the post, The box at for Capcom's Project Resistance has surfaced depicting the six main characters with the mastermind lurking above them. Not only that, the art also appears to confirm the final game title as Resident Evil Resistance, which makes sense considering the link tot he franchise as well as the code name being Project Resistance.
While fans should ultimately take this leak with a grain of salt considering Capcom has not officially confirmed it, the image does appear to have a few things which may make this leak credible. The font used in the image looks remarkably similar to other games in the series including the art work for Resident Evil 3.
In fact, Nibellion also reported that the long rumored and teased Resident Evil 3 Remake cover art appeared on PSN in what was likely an accident. As fans can see in both images, the font work looks nearly identical.

It's likely that Capcom is planning to reveal one, if not both, games relatively soon. It's entirely likely that Jump Festa will have an announcement or two, but for a mega franchise like Resident Evil, it's possible that the event isn't high profile enough. However, with The Game Awards also happening soon, Capcom could always opt to reveal Resident Evil 3 Remake there as well as a new Resident Evil Resistance trailer.
With both games, Capcom could likely satisfy all kinds of gamers. Project Resistance is something that is tapping into a different fanbase who may not enjoy the survival horror of the mainline series of games like Resident Evil 3. Instead, Project Resistance focuses more on 4v1 multiplayer seen in games like Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight. Four players work together to survive and escape the Resident Evil themed locations while the solo Mastermind player attempts to take them all out using Zombies and other creatures like Mr. X from the franchise.
Project Resistance is in development for PS4 and Xbox One.
