The report also mentions that Capcom did indeed have a number of prior private beta tests for Resident Evil Village. These closed beta tests have taken place both before and after the game’s announcement. For those who are aware of these tests, then this phishing attempt will look even more legitimate. The scammers are likely trying to make use of this fact.
At any rate, there’s probably no need to be in such a hurry to experience Resident Evil Village. After all, the game will be released in early May. And if you own a PS5, you can use the Maiden visual showcase to scratch that itch a little while waiting.
