Resident Evil fans should be cautious of any “Early Access invitations” to play Resident Evil Village, as these are part of an email scam.
Capcom has recently issued an email warning anybody who has got a “Early Access” invitation to play the forthcoming Resident Evil game not to approve it because it appears to be phishing attempts by a third-party.
According to Capcom the sender address is “no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com”
The official email from Capcom on this scam is as follows.
We’re sending this message as we’ve been made aware that there are currently emails circulating that pretend to contain “Early Access invitations” to Resident Evil Village. The sender address is being displayed as “no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com”.
We want to inform you that these messages are NOT from Capcom and appear to be phishing attempts by an unauthorized third party. If you have received such a message, please DO NOT download any files or reply, and delete the message immediately.

This comes just a few months after Capcom was hit by a data breach that affected its staff.
Resident Evil Village releases on May 7, 2021, and with how near the release date is, these con artists seem to be preying on fans’ excitement.
So, if you get an email from Capcom regarding Resident Evil Village that seems to be too nice to be real, it most definitely is.
