Fans of Resident Evil 8 have been waiting since late 2016 once news of development was announced before the project was paused during 2017. About six or seven months ago, the project was rebooted, but the release date and the final update on whether or not fans are actually going to experience Resident Evil 8 have not been officially stated. 

The direction of Resident Evil's franchise

When Resident Evil 7 was released, Capcom's horrifying world gained a strong direction before going back to Raccoon City '98 with their Resident Evil 2. It was a good thing that the remake was brilliantly carried out, and fans became even more excited to play Resident Evil 3. As to the future of Resident Evil, Capcom has still been silent with regard to their final direction.
