In A Three Minute Clip, Capcom Explains Why It’s Delaying The Not A Hero DLC

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 apologised.

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…


  • I hope it releases before winter is over and starts getting warm again. Playing RE7 with PSVR in January was uncomfortable!

  • Full credit for honesty in an age where crap is rushed out the door to the market all the time in a low quality state.

  • Is this some kind of crossover with Roll7’s Not A Hero? Because that would be awesome.

  • I wish all developers were this humble and respectful in their communication to fans…

  • It’s funny, there’s so many developers putting out games that aren’t finished or at the very least need a big bug fix shortly after release.
    Yet here they are apologizing for free dlc taking longer than expected because they want to make their fans happy.
    All developers should take note of this. I don’t think it needed to be three minutes, but the point is they just want to make everyone happy.
