Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Delayed To November
It looks like Resident Evil fans are going to have to wait just a bit longer for the latest movie iteration of the popular survival horror series. Said to adapt the first two games in the franchise, Resident Evil:: Welcome to Raccoon City was originally slated to premiere on September 3. Now, a newly announce delay has pushed the release date back to November 24.
As reported by Variety, the original release date for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City put the movie adaptation in the competitive spotlight alongside Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. As such, it seems as if Sony is looking to space out the release dates between the two properties, given that the upcoming Disney superhero flick will undoubtedly draw in some serious numbers despite the ongoing pandemic.
