Resident Evil Spin-off is in development at Capcom right now called “Project Resistance.” The game is pretty different from what we have been accustomed to with the series in the past. The game is looking increasingly like a mix of Left for Dead and Dead by Daylight.
Will you work with your allies as a Survivor, or will you crush their attempt to escape as the vicious Mastermind? The choice is yours in this 4 vs 1 asymmetrical co-op experience. #ProjectResistance pic.twitter.com/q1SNDrcHDK

The game looks interesting but it seems early fan reactions are mixed. The Friday the 13th vibes aren’t able to generate interest among Resident Evil fans who were looking forward to Resident Evil 8.
It should’ve been Outbreak File 1&2 remake or at least Outbreak File 3 I HATE 4 Vs 1 games!!! Huge Pass on this game!! pic.twitter.com/htPvgedQdC

Kinda sad to see people dismissing this so quick without even giving it more of a chance to show itself off. Also the argument of, “Nobody asked for this,” is never good. Remember RE7? Or literally any new game you’ve ever played? pic.twitter.com/hDaNy8L1BY

I concur. If anything this could prove to be better than the DBD mechanics & that game’s broken. I’ll give it a chance, Its an interesting concept even if it is not a remake or something else, anyone who over assumed should blame themselves for jumping the gun personally.

The main issue seems to be the 4v1 direction of Project Resistance. In a time when fans are eager to play Resident Evil 8, having something so entirely different isn’t gaining much traction.
Project Resistance is a 4-versus-1 asymmetrical co-op game where you fight zombies and overcome obstacles if you play as one of the survivors. You can sign up for the closed beta to test the concept yourself.
