He’s posted the entire interview to Twitter, and you can find some of the more interesting answers below.

First up, it seems Resident Evil Village has been in development for around 3.5 years, which jives with previous reports that the game began life as Resident Evil Revelations 3 sometime in 2016.

Expect a lot of ties to Resident Evil 7, beyond even the ones we know already, as the producers tease Village will be the conclusion of the story started in 7.

For you old-school RE fans, yes, inventory management will be important…

…and so will puzzle solving.

Finally, the producers seem to confirm previous rumors that reducing loading times is one of the main reasons RE Village is a next-gen exclusive.

Resident Evil Village is coming to PC, Xbox Series X, and PS5 in 2021.
