Wesker will not appear in future Resident Evil games, says producer

During a Capcom panel at Comic-Con, Resident Evil 5 producer Masachika Kawata was asked if Albert Wesker would appear in more Resident Evil games considering Resident Evil 5 left you wondering for some reason.

Apparently, the answer is no.

“Even if you want Albert Wesker to come back there is no chance of that happening,” Kawata told the audience, reports Siliconera.

So after appearing in the original, Code Veronica, Zero, RE4 and RE5 (Darkside Chronicles technically doesn’t count) Wesker is no more.

But if there is one thing we have learned playing different videogames over the years, it’s that you can’t keep a good series villain down for long.

Right Ganon/Ganondorf?

    That’s what he wants us to think.

    Good. This is the right decision and it gives me more hope for the quality of the next game.

    Good riddance. Wesker may have been bad-ass in 1996, but in RE5 he started to look a little too ridiculous for his own good. Those shades and the slicked-back blonde hair don’t carry any street-cred anymore.

    FINALLY! Considering he was practically torn in half literally by the Tyrant at the end of RE1…….I’d say….YEAH……good decision Capcom.

    I’d put the chances of “Wesker never coming back” at about…. 4%.

    About as likely as Kojima not making another MGS game.
