Capcom said that Resident Evil Village will get free additional content in the future.
The news about the DLC was published in Integrated annual report of the company. The lengthy document takes a look at the studio’s past year and provides insight into its plans for the future. Capcom Director and CEO Yoichi Egawa briefly discussed the company’s strategy and how Resident Evil Village’s plans fit into it.
“We want our customer management to understand user trends and preferences and develop a business model for online operations,” said Igawa. “If you remember our free downloadable content for titles like Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village.”
It is currently unclear what kind of DLC it is. During a session at E3 earlier this year, Capcom confirmed that due to “clear demand” for DLC, the studio is working on it. Not much has been said about the title since then.

Resident Evil Village previously received the Trauma Pack DLC, which came with Collector’s, Deluxe, and Complete editions of the game. It consisted mainly of cosmetic content. Capcom has not yet said whether the next free bear will be story driven or mostly cosmetic. Fans may get something similar to the Trauma Pack as part of a future DLC update.
Capcom recently announced that Resident Evil Village now has more than 5 million copies sold all over the world. In doing so, the game reached this milestone faster than its predecessor Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The studio also hit record sales and profits in the second quarter.
