Resident Evil 8 rumours say Ethan Winters will fight werewolves


Wait -- werewolves?

A new flurry of Resident Evil 8 rumours suggest a return of Resident Evil 7 protagonist, Ethan Winters, and the possibility of werewolves as enemies.

First reported by Biohazard Declassified, the very much unconfirmed rumours suggest the new next Resident Evil game will follow up from RE7 and keep its first-person viewpoint. Moreover, RE7‘s protagonist, Winters, will return and could be aided by longtime series protagonist (and RE7: Not a Hero star) Chris Redfield.

Echoing development of RE4, the next game is said to take place in a European castle… though in a departure, Ethan would be fighting a persistent “shadowy” female enemy alongside zombies and even werewolves.

We’ll keep you up to date as more is learned.

The next Resident Evil game to be released is the Resident Evil 3 remake, which heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 in April.
