Upcoming Resident Evil 7 DLC Delayed, Quality Assurance to Blame

The awaited Resident Evil DLC, “Not a Hero,” was scheduled to release sometime in Spring 2017. However, according to the latest word from Capcom, the developer will not be able to deliver it in time. Producer Masachika Kawata and Director Koshi Nakanishi, took to YouTube to deliver the unfortunate video message.

Both men stated that they had the development under control and were going to deliver the Resident Evil 7 DLC this Spring. But due to the excellent reception the base game received, they wanted to make sure that the DLC is not sub-par. Furthermore, they mentioned that the current state of “Not a Hero” DLC is not something the team is satisfied with.

Resident Evil 7 DLC features everyone’s favorite Chris Redfield and the story is separate from the events of the main game. The character model of Chris is very different from the one we had in previous games. However, according to Capcom, he is indeed the iconic Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield. Director Koshi Nakanishi stated that there’s nothing wrong with Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 7: he’s not a copy nor he has been brainwashed. He’s the real one. The company has simply changed his appearance in order to make him look more realistic and consistent with the game’s style.

The free Resident Evil 7 DLC will give a taste of the new Redfield, well, not exactly new but you get the idea. It is a shame that “Not a Hero” is “not ready to meet your expectations.” A new release window is yet to be announced by the developers.

The main game ended with Redfield visiting the Baker Estate in an Umbrella Corp Helicopter. The new DLC may feature a different location (Umbrella?) as it is separate from the main game’s events.

Resident Evil 7 DLC, “Not a Hero,” is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
