DC Douglas, the voice actor best known for his portrayal of Resident Evil’s Albert Wesker, has reportedly shared confidential concept art for the unannounced Resident Evil 4 remake.

As reported by VGC, the apparently leaked concept art was shared on Twitter (below). According to tweets from the @ BewareCreepyVAs account, the image in question allegedly shows a sketch of the Wesker as it would appear in the Separate Ways section of the remake.

More tweets from the account, claiming that others have also indicated that Douglas shared pictures with them. The tweets on the thread claim that Douglas sent the picture to a number of people despite knowing that doing so would violate his NDA’s terms and asked them not to share it further.

While it is currently unclear whether or not the images shared on the platform represent true concept art from the game, it is interesting to note that the actor has been since then has deleted his Twitter account. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Capcom has yet to issue a public statement confirming or denying the authenticity of the images in question.

Rumors of a possible remake of Resident Evil 4 began early last year. Since then, reports in January indicated that the game’s development may have resulted in a change in leadership due to internal disagreements over its direction.

According to these reports, the game’s original developer, M-Two, has reduced its role in the remake as Resident Evil Studio Division 1 is now set to take control of the game. This change reportedly came after Capcom and M-Two had differing opinions on whether the potential remake should introduce new elements and features to Resi 4’s gameplay.

With no official announcement from Capcom of a remake of Resident Evil 4, fans are unlikely to see a release window for the game until the fourth quarter of 2022 at the earliest.
