In the world of Resident Evil, Japanese publisher Capcom just pushed out Resident Evil 8 earlier this month. However, there is still more to come in terms of entertainment for the video game franchise. For one, the live-action film ‘Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City’ is scheduled to hit theaters later this fall. But, that is not all for 2021.
Elsewhere on Netflix, Capcom in collaboration with Netflix is to deliver a new CGI movie – Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. While framed to arrive sometime this year, it was not until a previous Resident Evil Anniversary Livestream that Capcom pressed the Netflix film to be arriving sometime in July later this summer.
As per a press release via PRTimes.jp, Gematsu transcribes a segment of the statement which you can read below:
This new series will be produced and supervised by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who is responsible for bringing numerous titles in the Resident Evil series into existence. TMS Entertainment, which has birthed various anime series, will produce the series, while Quebico, led by Kei Miyamoto, the producer of Resident Evil: Vendetta, will be in charge of the full 3D CG animation production.
This will be a horror-action series based around the stories of the two popular characters, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. By adding suspense into dynamic action scenes, this series will reveal a Resident Evil world unlike anything seen before.
“Three years after 2017’s CG film Resident Evil: Vendetta, technology has further evolved, creating the groundwork for a new series in unprecedented full 3D CG animation,” Capcom adds in the press release.
