"We got close to completing the game content," said Nakanishi. "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."

"Our aim for this content is to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time in order to achieve that goal," said Kawata.

The DLC will remain free, but Capcom does not have a new release window for it yet.

Not a Hero was supposed to cover the story of returning Resident Evil mainstay Chris Redfield, explain how he became a part of the new Umbrella shown at the end of the game. Until Not a Hero releases, fans can catch Chris and Leon in Resident Evil: Vendetta.
