Resident Evil 7 biohazard has been a massive success for Capcom after previous instalments started to put the franchise on rocky ground. Since the videogame’s release in January the studio has added two further DLC packs and a third was due to be released this Spring. That’s not going to happen as Capcom released a video message confirming a delay.
In an unusual move, director Koshi Nakanishi and producer Masachika Kawata revealed why the delay has happened, with Kawata saying: “We were working very hard to get the DLC ready in time for the spring release.” Nakanishi then went on to add: “And we got close to completing the game content. However, in light of the incredible reception to the release of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that this DLC was not good enough to meet those high expectations.”
“Our aim is for this content to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time in order to achieve that goal,” said Kawata.
At the very end of the video executive producer Jun Takeuchi revealed further content plans saying: “We are also working on a further piece of DLC at the moment,” without going in anymore details.
The Not a Hero DLC first got announced back in February, with Capcom revealing a big spoiler about the end of the main game via Twitter. ‘Chris Redfield returns’ read the tweet, going on to say ‘Who or what is he chasing?’ What Capcom hasn’t yet said is if this DLC will support virtual reality (VR), as Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 both featured some VR-compatible content.
PlayStation VR has a 12-month exclusive on Resident Evil 7 biohazard, so if the title does come to other headsets in 2018 there will be plenty of content to play through.
