The Resident Evil franchise has had a lot of activity this year, but the sudden release of a teaser trailer for a new CGI title took everyone by surprise over the weekend, sending fans on a mad scramble for more information.
Already, we are expecting a live-action series to debut on Netflix "soon" as well as the highly-anticipated Resident Evil Village which will land on various video game platforms in 2021. Now, a new Resident Evil CGI animated series was just announced and will also be released on Netflix.
Check out the official teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness from the official Netflix YouTube channel:
One of the exciting things about the trailer is right at the beginning, as we see the unmistakable silhouette of none other than fan-favorite Claire Redfield. A few seconds later, we get a glimpse of a decidedly dapper-looking Leon S. Kennedy entering the scene.
The YouTube description reads: "Based on the Capcom video game franchise, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a horror series with a sci-fi twist. Coming 2021 only on Netflix."
The news first broke on September 26 from a now deleted tweet from the Netflix Portugal account. A day later, @NXonNetflix – the sci-fi and anime brand of Netflix – finally tweeted out the "official" trailer for the upcoming CGI anime series.
No other details have been revealed as of this writing.
