Capcom previously scheduled a spring launch for Resident Evil 7’s Not a Hero expansion, but the release is now put off to a later date to fulfill the base game’s high standards. While Capcom remains mum on the exact launch date, it is possible that the game’s expansion will debut sometime in the summer.

Game director Koshi Nakanish said in an official video announcement that the delay is needed to improve the free add-on and concluded the DLC was not good enough now because it failed to meet the expectations for Resident Evil 7. The base game was released in January to critical acclaim. Producer Masachika Kawata also said in the video that the team’s goal is to match the content’s quality to the standard of the main game, which is why the group needed more time to further develop the DLC to achieve its goal.

This is a wise decision taking into account all the negative feedback that the Banned Footage DLCs received in February.

Executive Producer Jun Takeuchi added:

Resident Evil 7 was supported passionately by you, our fans, and the game was very well received. With this title we tried to both renew RE and return to its roots and I’m truly grateful for all of your positive feedback. However, the three of us have come to the conclusion that this free DLC is not yet ready to meet your expectations.

As Capcom previously promised, the Not a Hero expansion will be a free offering for Resident Evil 7 fans. Also, Capcom teased the next piece of DLC currently in development. The expansion features Chris Redfield, a fan favorite character who is revealed later in the game to be working for the Umbrella Corporation. Resident Evil 7’s other pieces include Banned Footage Volumes 1 and 2, both of which launched earlier this year.
