Capcom goes all-in with Resident Evil in 2021.
The franchise, which continues to be some of the widespread horror IPs on the planet, is being expanded upon in primarily each medium over the subsequent 12 months or so, with video games, movies, TV reveals and even celebratory manga volumes all at the moment within the works. It’s price noting that, as of writing, none of those formidable initiatives have confirmed launch home windows, with Resident Evil Village – the core collection’ eighth mainline installment – anticipated to drop within the first few months of the New Yr for next-gen (and doubtlessly extra) consoles.
If we’re to imagine that Village is meant to kick off the franchise’s upcoming 25th anniversary celebrations, streaming service Netflix will preserve the ball rolling, so to talk, later within the yr with its just lately introduced live-action TV collection in addition to an animated present, Infinite Darkness, that includes widespread characters reminiscent of Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. And that’s not even referring to the upcoming film reboot that we’ve been listening to about for fairly a while, although in case you’re anticipating a repeat of Paul W.S. Anderson’s adaptation, assume once more.
MORE FROM THE WEB
In a latest interview with ComicBook, Anderson revealed that, for the foreseeable future, not less than, he has no real interest in returning to Capcom’s iconic universe and considers his six-film adaptation to be an entire work. He mentioned:
I made Resident Evil: The Ultimate Chapter, and everyone mentioned, ‘Oh yeah, proper. It’s the ultimate chapter. He’s a bloody liar.’ And we made it, we referred to as it the ‘Ultimate Chapter,’ we made a narrative that introduced all the things to a decision, which is what I’d all the time meant. And we made it the most important and most profitable of the franchise. And, for me, that was the time to stroll away from it. I did what I mentioned I used to be going to do and I’m immensely happy with it. And I believe we did it, we achieved what we wished to.
As for all times past Resident Evil, Anderson says he’s now absolutely immersed in one other of Capcom’s extraordinarily widespread creations. In case you hadn’t heard, Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa, is scheduled to land in theaters this December. Maintain your eyes peeled on WGTC for tomorrow’s first trailer.
