CAPCOM warned everybody about these scam mails with a note to the press.

“We’re sending this message as we’ve been made aware that there are currently emails circulating that pretend to contain “Early Access invitations” to Resident Evil Village. The sender address is being displayed as “no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com”.

We want to inform you that these messages are NOT from Capcom and appear to be phishing attempts by an unauthorized third party. If you have received such a message, please DO NOT download any files or reply, and delete the message immediately. If you are unsure of the authenticity of correspondence from Capcom, please contact us directly to verify.”

Ethan Winters to return in Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village will continue from where Resident Evil 7 left off. It will also mark the return of Ethan Winters, the fan-favorite American systems engineer. During an interview with PlayStation Official Magazine, producer Peter Fabiano spoke about the character.

“The team grew quite attached to Ethan as a character, so we knew we wanted to continue his story arc. We wanted to continue to have players experience the game through the eyes of protagonist Ethan Winters. This is a continuation of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard after all.”

Peter believes that long time fans are in for a treat with the upcoming title.

“Since we are constantly sharing information across Resident Evil teams, that really helped inform us in making what we consider the best survival horror game to date.”

Players and fans of the franchise will get to play the latest title on PlayStation 5/4 and Xbox Series X/S/One and PC, once the game releases on May 7, 2021.
