Resident Evil 4 May Not Get Further DLC, Devs Imply

Story Round-Up

  • Speaking with 4Gamer, RE4 devs have implied that no further DLC is planned for the title.
  • In an interview with IGN, Hirabayashi-san confirmed the status of Operation Javier, declaring it canon.

The developers behind the remake of Resident Evil 4 have implied that no further DLC is planned for the title. Discovered by X (formerly Twitter) user @cvxfreak in an interview with 4Gamer, producers Yoshiaki Hirabayashi & Masato Kumazawa hinted at the curtains falling on this chapter.

[Resident Evil 4 Remake] is finished in a package that can be enjoyed in various ways.” (machine-translated).

However, producer Hirabayashi took a more cautious approach, apologizing for not having “specifics” to share regarding the possibility of future content for Resident Evil 4. Though not definitive, the overall tone suggests the current DLC options (the Extra pack and Separate Ways) might be where Capcom draws the line for RE4.

I hope that I will continue to do my best to meet your expectations.”

Given how the game treated Operation Javier, not having a DLC pack based on it is definitely a dampener. More so due to its recent confirmation as canon and the remake’s expanded take on its events. Having said that, perhaps it’s still too early to lose hope. Speaking to IGN, Hirabayashi-san seems to hint at Operation Javier being a part of the upcoming potential remake of Resident Evil Code Veronica.

Capcom has indeed confirmed that several remake projects for the series are in the works, with some references to RE5 found at the end of Resident Evil 4. Yet, I’ll advise you to take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Resident Evil 4 launched on March 24, 2023, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PC. While new content might not be guaranteed, the existing experience has resonated with newcomers and returning fans alike, having received universal acclaim on Metacritic and moving over 6 million units to date.
