Not a Hero, the free Spring content drop for Resident Evil 7 has been delayed, Producer Masachika Kawata and Director Koshi Nakanishi has announced.
Following the release of Resident Evil 7 in February, Capcom announced a free downloadable piece of content to all players titled Not a Hero, scheduled for download sometime in Spring, 2017. Today, Resident Evil 7‘s Producer and Director confirmed that the upcoming free DLC has now been delayed.
“The free Not a Hero DLC which was announced for Spring 2017 is going to be delayed,” said Nakanishi in a video message to fans on YouTube.
Despite the team admitting it is close to completion with the DLC, Resident Evil 7‘s Director cited the games huge success as a primary reason for its subsequent delay.
“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,” explained Nakanishi.
“Our aim is for this content to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time to achieve that goal,” added Kawata.
A refreshing message, to say the least; the pair would finish by promising fans an experience fitting of the franchise when Not a Hero eventually releases as a free download to all players.
Not a Hero is set to feature long-time franchise character Chris Redfield in a story separate to that of the main game.
Resident Evil 7 is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
