Capcom launched a new ARG (Alternate Reality Game) starting on twitter yesterday with this post
The numbers spoken were used as coordinates to locate towns and buildings. The first letter of each location was used to spell out "uvillageconnoisseur". That combined with the hint it originates from Reddit,
Today, they have made this post.

Worst case it’s probably just little promo for the final demoID: gwa5axkID: gwa9t1p
Called away on urgent business. I’d refer you to my assistant, but you’d be better off waiting until I return." INTERSTING
sounds awesome never had a chance to play the ogs on the remakes of the older gamesID: gwbipgu
God I could only hope
Obviously, they’re going to show us something special about Village on Friday.
Is the general consensus that this is marketing for RE8? It seems pretty late on for such an elaborate marketing campaign....ID: gw76tn8
RE8 definitely seems more likely, but I am holding onto the tiniest bit of hope that its something about an RE4 remake.ID: gw7hlya
Maybe RE8 DLC?ID: gw85kg0
You're assistant gets referrals?ID: gw8khn4
I don't think this has anything to do with RE4VR or Village, these kinds of ARG's usually lead to the initial reveal of something, not to advertise something that's already announced.
My guess is that this will lead to either a trailer for the Netflix live action Resident Evil TV series, or the live action movie they're also making.
We dont have a release date for the TV series, so my money is on this being the eventual trailer drop for the RE movie which has a release date of November this year.ID: gw7aeoc
Its very weird marketing decision with less than 2 weeks till releaseID: gw8slus
Does re4 really need a remake?ID: gwb5xqr
Imagine if the end of RE8 has some tidbit spoilers for RE4 Remake holy shitID: gw80w3u
Elaborate or just half-baked? These ARG campaigns never actually seem useful or fun in the last 8 years. It's usually just some bizarre goose chase where at the end we get a "Drink your Ovaltine™" type conclusion.ID: gwarcqj
I heard stranger things did an art near the release of season 3 that lasted until even after the series dropped
Probably something for the RE4 VR.ID: gw8mxsi
What if they announce re4vr can be played without vr . Like a reverse re7. Because I can't justify buying a capable computer and a vr setup but still am intriguedID: gw8o2mc
From what it sounds like, they rebuilt it from the ground up purely for VR. Hand movements, dual wielding. I don’t see them allowing it to be played outside of VR unfortunatelyID: gw8u2ud
Does the oculus quest 2 need a pc?ID: gwanx0h
Lucky for you they've already released RE4VR without VR, it's just called RE4.
RESIDENT EVIL 8 ARG -
best case: its about some weird, secret legal battle with sony which spanned multiple courts about getting the PS1 originals of RE 1, 2, 3, and Dino Crisis 1+2 onto other platforms. This ARG is just turning it into a REUniverse story.
