They state that messages that contain "Early Access invitations" to Resident Evil Village are not from Capcom. Players should not download or reply to such emails.

Capcom's upcoming survival horror Resident Evil Village is one of the biggest games of 2021 and someone has tried to take advantage of those who are eagerly anticipating the title. Capcom warns via PR statement that a third party has set up a phishing email, that pretends to contain an invitation to early access for Resident Evil Village.

"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." Capcom inform in an email.

Capcom say that those who are unsure about the authenticity of the email can contact the publisher directly with their concerns. 

This is not the first phishing attempt of this sort. Ubisoft recently had to send out an email, warning players about a Far Cry 6 early access phishing email that appeared online. CD Projekt Red also had to do the same for their RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
