Following right on the heels of last evening’s leak, Netflix has gone ahead and officially announced Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness – a new “anime” CGI series that reunites Resident Evil 2 protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Unlike Capcom’s previous CGI installments (e.g., Resident Evil: Degeneration, which was released as a full-length feature), Infinite Darkness is an episodic streaming exclusive that will debut globally in 2021.
“This new series will be produced and supervised by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who is responsible for bringing numerous titles in the Resident Evil series into existence,” Netflix wrote. “TMS Entertainment, which has birthed various anime series, will produce the series, while Quebico, led by Kei Miyamoto, the producer of Resident Evil: Vendetta, will be in charge of the full 3DCG animation production.”
Netflix is still keeping Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness’s plot under lock and key, so we have no idea what Leon and Claire are teaming up for this time. We’re guessing that there will be plenty of blood, monsters, and zombies, though.
“Who will be the enemy this time?,” the streamer teased. “What is the meaning of ‘Infinite Darkness’? Stay tuned for more news about the Netflix original anime series RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness!”
