It has been announced Resident Evil Village will be receiving DLC content. 

It seems that DLC content will be making its way to Resident Evil Village. During its E3 2021 showcase, Capcom announced that a new expansion is on the way for Village (via Polygon). According to the developer, development on the new content has "just started." No other details were given, including release dates, prices, or what the DLC will entail. However, Capcom did promise that they will release more information at a later date. 

News on Resident Evil RE: Verse was also given. Village producer Tsuyoshi Kanda stated that the multiplayer mode that was attached to the latest Resident Evil title will be released next month. The game was originally meant to release alongside Village, but was delayed. However, it was announced that the competitive third-person multiplayer shooter has a July release date, though no exact date has been given at this time. RE: Verse will allow gamers to play as both heroes and villains from the series' expansive history. 

Resident Evil Village has been quite the success for Capcom since its release last month. The game was one of the most downloaded titles on the PlayStation Store for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in the month of May. The game has sold over four million copies, helping push lifetime sales of the Resident Evil series to over 100 million copies. Village had peaked at over 100,000 concurrent Steam players the week that it released. In comparison, the second most played Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 2 Remake, only reached 74,000 concurrent players. Village also reached over 620,000 viewers on Twitch, the most in the series thus far. 

Resident Evil Village is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
