Yes I'm glad it's in 1st person! While RE7 wasn't in my top 5 best RE games. It was their first new RE Engine game which was why the game was small and lacked stuff. But it did showed potential and had it's own nice feel in 1st person. RE8 will be massively improved over RE7 in every possible way I'm sure.
Considering they apparently went back to the drawing board recently on it, who knows what the final RE8 will look like?
I wouldn't mind another first person RE game but I hope they stick with the RE2/3 engines.
The best future game pattern in my opinion would be
OTS for another remake of the old games so it fits more with the recent two Remakes.
But for 8 and 9, have it be in both 1st person/VR like RE7 so people can get more used to the 1st person and the improvements they'll make.
Then finally Resident Evil 10+ will be purely on VR only. Half Life Alyx showed us that a VR only game feels very different than simply playing a first person game in VR. The movement and feel is completely different.
