Resident Evil Village Leaks Are Finding Their Way Online, So Be Wary of Spoilers
Resident Evil Village will officially be released in May, but it appears that extensive leaks are starting to make their way onto the internet early. So be warned going forward as there are now spoilers abound the net.
As reported by Eurogamer, Capcom is taking down videos online with Resident Evil Village leaks. These aren’t just clips from The Maiden Resident Evil Village demo, but entirely new scenes showcasing encounters with Resident Evil Village’s popular Lady Alcina Dimitrescu.
These leaks, which we won’t detail here, are reportedly from a developer build of Resident Evil Village, likely related to the massive Capcom data hack.

Last November, Capcom was the victim of a massive ransomware attack from a group called the Ragnar Locker hacker group. The hackers claimed to have stolen a trove of information, including files and internal documents and demanded an $11 million bitcoin ransom.
The company’s upcoming release calendar and potentially 390,000 items of personal information were reportedly compromised. Despite this, Capcom has said there was “limited impact” from the attack and that an investigation into damages is ongoing.
That said, fans looking to stay free of Resident Evil Village spoilers should be extra cautious going forward. Leaks for major video games have seemingly increased in recent years as parts of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part 2 were both leaked ahead of the official release dates.
