Leon Voice Matt Mercer Thinks Classic Character Cameos May Not Be Big In Resident Evil 7

A recent Gamespot interview with Matt Mercer, the voice actor who played Leon in Resident Evil 6 among other games & movies, revealed some new information about Resident Evil 7. Mercer says he, and probably also Leon, are not associated with the new Resident Evil 7 game. Mercer also gave his thoughts on the role of classic characters in future Resident Evil games, thoughts that were misconstrued by people online as fact. We took a look at what Mercer had to say and uncovered the real story behind classic characters in the new game.

The following is a quote by Mercer from the interview that had people asking me what I felt about NO classic characters returning to the game.

"As far as 7 goes, I think they're scaling back a little bit on throwing in all the classic cameos."

When you read this quote, make sure to take the next part into consideration too.

"I can say that I don't have any involvement in 7 directly."

Mercer is not involved in the game and most likely doesn't know any more than we do. He is just giving out his opinion. How this became "0 Characters Returning" is beyond me.

Here's the quote from RE7 Producer from months ago:

"It also does take place in the Resident Evil universe. However, I really want people to put aside the storyline and elements they know from the previous Resident Evil games and approach this anew."

Also from the quote, nothing really new here. From everything we've read from the game's producers they want to take Resident Evil back to the old days, but make it more realistic and with new characters. It isn't shocking they won't be having too many cameos. However, the RE7 team says the game takes place in the Resident Evil Universe, after the events of Resident Evil 6, which means that there is a good chance there is some connection to classic characters.

We've done a lot of prediction videos about what characters might return, and I'm not stopping now! Which characters would you like to see return to the game?
