Resident Evil 4 Remake set to feature iconic villain – Rumors
Resident Evil is one of the biggest gaming franchises on the market. The popular survival horror series has been a fan favorite since its original release back in 1996, boasting plenty of beloved characters in the franchise. Now, in the new Resident Evil 4 Remake, villain Albert Wesker could make a return. The upcoming game has many gamers excited, but this rumor has Resident Evil fans specifically intrigued.
This rumor arose after Wesker was listed on the Resident Evil 4 Remake IMDb page. The page has actor Connor Fogarty, who voiced the character in past games, returning to voice the character.
Wesker was listed on the website’s page, but the character is no longer listed. Though IMDb may not be the most accurate source, the Wesker rumor is still compelling for fans.
Wesker is an antagonist in the franchise, and he was even in the original Resident Evil game. The character has since been in multiple games throughout the series and has a relationship with another huge fan-favorite character, Ada Wong.
It will be interesting to see if this rumor is true as this opens many doors to further explore Wesker’s character.
