The trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is leaked, with the Redfield brothers and Leon Kennedy as protagonists. Premiere on Netflix next year.

Known as the gold standard of survival horror games with over 100 million units from the game series shipped worldwide, Resident Evil has now been transformed into a Netflix original CG anime series. In August, Netflix announced it was producing an eight-episode live-action series based on the games, to which this might be somehow related.

Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be the stars of the show, which will have a horror-action vibe.

Check out the teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness below.

This new TV series will be supervised and produced by Capcom's Hiroyuki Kobayashi who is also responsible for bringing various Resident Evil games into existence.

There's a possibility that Ruben may go out [on loan] to play games because I think that would be great for him. We've had a couple of conversations in the last week and he is fit as a fiddle so he can play week in week out.

Resident Evil: Village is scheduled to release sometime in 2021 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC, with possible Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions in the offing.

More information about Resident Evil Infinite Darkness will be released in the future.

The show follows Albert Wesker's children when they move to New Raccoon City, yet "the mystery they reveal may very well be the finish of everything".

In additon, there's also a reboot of the Resident Evil film series in the works from Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down). And more than six billion monsters - people and animals infected with the T-virus. "Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past - about her sister, her father and herself - continue to haunt her".
