Resident Evil 7’s upcoming expansion, Not A Hero, has been delayed. Capcom announced that the DLC, which was scheduled to launch this spring, has been pushed back to an unspecified date.
Resident Evil 7’s game director, Koshi Nakanishi, explained in a video that the expansion was delayed in order to buy the team more time to improve it and make it live up to fans expectations.
“In light of the incredible reception of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that this DLC was not good enough to meet those high expectations”, explained Koshi. The games producer Masachika Kawata further built upon his colleagues words “Our aim for this content to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time in order to achieve that goal.”
Capcom is still holding on to their promise of releasing the DLC for free. The video also teased another upcoming DLC, which is currently in development. The video is available on Youtube and although it is in Japanese, English subtitles are available.
