Resident Evil 7: References to three franchise characters found in data mine


It's definitely not a one-shot.

The recent Resident Evil 7 data mine, coupled with information from Biohazard France, has revealed that references to at least three characters in the Resident Evil franchise exist in the coming game.

Spoilers ahead.

First, a newspaper article referencing the disappearance of citizens in the Dulvey area — where the Baker mansion is located — is credited to Alyssa Ashcroft, a character in Resident Evil: Outbreak.

Second, another, separate file is signed by Clive O’Brian, the former Director of the BSAA. He first appeared in Resident Evil: Revelations.

Finally, as reported earlier today, a data mine has revealed several references to a character named “Albert”. While it’s yet to be confirmed that the references are in relation to franchise antagonist Albert Wesker, it’s highly likely.

We’ll keep you informed.

Resident Evil 7 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 (with PS VR support) in late January 2017.
