The tests are going to be carried out in Los Angeles and New York towards the end of September. There are some conditions that have to be fulfilled before you’re even going to be considered for a slot.
The first of these is that one has to be a Resident Evil Ambassador. According to the Resident Evil Wiki:
Resident Evil Ambassador, also called the Resident Evil Ambassador Program is a special program that launched on June 13/14, 2016 during the 20th Anniversary of the series, users can register with either a Capcom Account (RE.NET), Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LINE accounts and must be age 17 or older.
After the registration process, the user obtains their own page and a card displaying their number and registration date. Ambassadors will also start receiving promotional e-mails about the Resident Evil series.
The second condition is that one must have played a Resident Evil title in the past. That’s a given, right?
Resident Evil Ambassadors in Japan received a similar email last week. It read:
To all Resident Evil Ambassadors,
Thank you for your patronage regarding the Resident Evil series.
Today, we are letting you know that we are recruiting testers for a game that’s in development!!
We are interested in incorporating the feedback of all Ambassadors into our development, so please read the details below and, if you are interested in participating, click the Entry button.
Could this mean that a Resident Evil game is in development? The Resident Evil 2 remake that was released earlier this year proved to be quite a success. It has been heralded by all as the way to remake a game. Is Capcom going to try to recreate that success with another remake or is Resident Evil 8 about to be announced?
We don’t know for sure and we won’t know for sure until more details come to light. September is just a month away so lets wait and see what game Capcom wants tested!
