Typically, delays are announced via press release. Capcom, however, filmed a three-minute clip to announce it’s pushing back the release of Resident Evil 7 free DLC Not A Hero.


“We got close to completing the game content,” said RE’ director Koshi Nakanishi. “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.”

Remember, this DLC is free.

Producer Masachika Kawata added, “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.”

Nakanishi said “rest assured” that the team will use this time to make something players love.

Then, executive producer Jun Takeuchi appeared on screen and once again explained why the three of them decided to delay the free DLC, saying, “This free DLC is not yet ready to meet your expectations.”

Takeuchi also announced Capcom was working on another piece of RE7 DLC. He then asked fans for their continued support and apologized.

There was no mention as to when either DLC was going to be released.

Wonder if that Resident Evil 7 conspiracy will feature in the DLC...

Theyve lost a lot of good will from the gaming community, so good on them for trying harder. Too bad they didn’t do this for sfv.
