Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CGI Adaptation Coming to Netflix in 2021

Resident Evil Infinite Darkness

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be the latest CGI adaptation in the franchise, and it’s coming to Netflix. Resident Evil Animation Producer, Hiroyuki Kobayashi, introduced the project during the Resident Evil Showcase on January 21, 2021.

Capcom originally announced the 3D CGI animated project back in 2020. The new story will focus on fan-favorites Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy. Chronologically, it will take place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 4. Releasing sometime in 2021, the new series will be available worldwide on Netflix.

We also heard about another upcoming film in the works back in 2020. Differing from the 3D CGI productions, this new movie will be a live-action adaptation focusing on the Spencer Mansion and Raccoon City. So far, characters like Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, and Albert Wesker have been confirmed.

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will release in 2021 worldwide on the Netflix streaming service.
