Capcom leaks are an all too common common tradition that seem to occur at least once a year. The most recent incident seems to back up the frequent rumors suggesting that Resident Evil 4 remake is indeed in development — possibly with leaked concept art. Capcom certainly isn’t happy if this is indeed true, but for now this remains to be speculation at most.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is a game that many fans have been eagerly awaiting. Even more so, considering the success of both remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. Though there’s been no official word from Capcom, it makes sense that the fourth game would be the next to be remade.
The leak itself was highlighted by Twitter account, @BewareCreepyVAs. The account owner made a post, showing some alleged concept art for the game that was apparently shared by Albert Wesker’s voice actor, D.C. Douglas. The art depicts Albert Wesker, a longtime villain in Resident Evil, as he would appear in the game. It’s been claimed that the artwork came out of a confidential document sent to the actor from Capcom. There are also images that allegedly depict Douglas sharing these images in private messages to other parties. Douglas has since deleted his Twitter, account and denied posting these leaks in an Instagram post.
Wearing shades, even at night
Douglas has appeared in many popular games over the years. He has roles in games like Persona 5, Borderlands 3, and most importantly, Resident Evil 5. The latter of which he played Albert Wesker, arguably the main villain of the Resident Evil series. This is one of the actor’s most prominent roles, and one that boosted his popularity quite a bit.
Douglas has also been heavily scrutinized for his past behavior in recent years. Particularly, his interactions with fans have sparked outrage with members in their respective communities. So much so, that the Twitter account that shared the information of the leak also shed some light on his problematic history. This information is unconfirmed as of now, but does stress a level of discomfort that some fans have with the actor.
Whether the leaked concept art for the Resident Evil 4 remake is real is impossible to say at the moment. Confirmation will have to wait for whenever Capcom decides to announce the game in their own time.
