Capcom has decided to scrap the Resident Evil Village DLC with a focus on Chris Redfield with the idea of putting more effort into the upcoming Shadows of Rose.
The information comes from notable Resident Evil leak AestheticGamer (also known as Dusk Golem), which has brought notable bits of many Japanese interviews to AestheticGamer. Twitter theme. According to his translation, Capcom originally planned a DLC chapter featuring Chris Redfield as the protagonist, which looks quite similar to Resident Evil 7 Not a Hero. However, the idea was later deferred, with the new team initially deciding to devote more time and money to Shadows of Rose to making a “more fleshy” ending.
Kris’ scrapped content would see the character “get a little angry” as a result of his inner pressure and guilt before Ethan and Mia. It seems Redfield should have acted similarly to Isaac Clarke from Dead Space, who always felt the burden of responsibility for his girlfriend, seeing things that weren’t really there. Perhaps the abolished village chapter was supposed to be less action-oriented than Not a Hero, which offers little besides intense gunfights.
During the development period, the psychedelic Shadows of Rose became very convincing for the team, and they wanted to put all their resources into it. This has resulted in a significant growth in the amount of downloadable content, offering about four hours of content, which is roughly half of the base game. It was previously known that Shadows of Rose will see players return to Dimitrescu Castle, but you can expect more locations than just a vampire castle. With Shadows of Rose, Capcom aims to bring a different style of horror to the franchise described as a “nightmare fever dream” with a focus on survival and exotic visuals.
As far as we know, Shadows of Rose will provide a fitting conclusion to the entire Winters family saga, meaning we likely won’t see Ethan, Mia, or Rosemary in future RE games. It’s unknown what’s coming next in the series after Resident Evil 4 Remake, however we might get some hints in October, during the scheduled Resident Evil show. Capcom has already promised “news and updates on Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, Resident Evil 4, and more. “
