Resident Evil 7 demo: Capcom’s purposefully keeping quiet to “keep people guessing”

Resident Evil 7‘s demo was the talk of the internet last week, prompting thousands upon thousands of gamers to work together in an attempt to solve its mysteries. We collectively made quick work of the demo, finding three different endings… and then hit a brick wall. A week later, and we still don’t know what to do with the axe. Or that damn dummy finger.

Early last week, Stevivor attempted to ask Capcom some specific questions about the demo, and they’ve all been knocked back as of yesterday. Strategically, it seems.

A Capcom representative responded to our line of questioning by politely declining to directly comment upon it.

“I can confirm that they wouldn’t be answered by the team at R&D,” the representative wrote to Stevivor via email. “They want to keep these things as mysteries and keep people guessing about them so they’re not going to issue any answers at this time.”

So there you have it — either we figure this out together, or we wait until interest is so low that Capcom is forced to rekindle the fire.

The Resident Evil 7 demo is available to PlayStation Plus users on PS4 right now — and if you don’t have Plus, remember it’s free in Australia this weekend. The demo is planned to head to Windows PC and Xbox One at an undisclosed date.
