The Resident Evil Ambassador Twitter account put out another tweet shortly after about looking for gamers to partake in a Closed Beta Test of an upcoming multiplayer 25th Anniversary title. The bottom of the signup sheet says the upcoming title a ‘Multi-Player Action’ title for 4-6 players. The new generation consoles will be running PlayStation 4 and Xbox One copies of the game and most likely will not get their own version. While people can sign up for the test Capcom ambassadors will have a higher chance of getting into the beta. Testing will take place on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One.
The Twitter trailer shows Resident Evil Village Producer, Peter Fabiano talking to the camera about the upcoming entry. Afterwards, Village Producer Tsuyoshi Kanda talking with the Resident Evil 25th Anniversary logo beside him.

He would also take on the role of Producer for Resident Evil 2 Remake in the later stages of the development of the series revamp, Resident Evil 7. Kanda has been mainly a business and marketing person for Capcom USA but was moved to Capcom Co., Ltd to be a producer on Resident Evil 7 and 2 Remake. The host, Brombacher is a co-founder of What’s Good Games, a youtube channel and website dedicated to gaming news and commentary.
