‘These messages are NOT from Capcom’

Capcom has become the king of private and public “pre-release” events, so to speak.

They’ve run a private group for testing out Resident Evil games for years, but they also hold a decent amount of public-facing demos. Resident Evil Village already got one, but if you’re getting notifications for another, stop right there. Specifically, for “Early Access Invitations from a “ no reply” email.

We’ve obtained a message directly from Capcom confirming the scam: “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.”

Normally we don’t pick up on every single phishing scam (there’s a lot), but Capcom felt the need to address this publicly as it’s become fairly widespread. Consider this your PSA!
