It seems like Ethan, Mia, and Rose Winters may not appear in Resident Evil 9. According to director Kento Kinoshita, Resident Evil Village's Shadows of Rose DLC will offer the proper ending for the Winters family in the series.
Shadows of Rose is the only expansion coming for Resident Evil Village later this year, and it has about four hours of new content to offer. Players will not only get to know Ethan and Mia's daughter Rosemary and visit Castle Dimitrescu once again, but will seemingly say goodbye to all the new characters from Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village.
Speaking to IGN Japan, Capcom's Kento Kinoshita revealed that the team is "creating the Shadows of Rose story to conclude the Winters family saga." From the sounds of it, the next chapter in the Resident Evil series. which we currently know nothing about, will head towards entirely new horizons.
Of course, there's always a possibility that Resident Evil 9 will bring back familiar faces from earlier installments, like Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield, or it might just introduce a completely new cast of characters instead. In any case, producer Masachika Kawata added that the devs could "absolutely not" share what's coming next in the series after the upcoming remake of Resident Evil 4.
Given how Resident Evil Village's main story ended, some fans could have imagined that Ethan Winters would be unlikely to return as the protagonist of the next entry. However, it seems that Capcom has made a firm decision to wrap things up for his entire family with the upcoming DLC. We just have to wait for answers to all the lingering questions that still remain.
Despite Shadows of Rose taking you to Castle Dimitrescu once more, you don't have to worry about it feeling secondary to the base game. As our features editor Eric Switzer wrote in his preview, "the mansion has a totally different pace and tone that makes it feel fresh again." Resident Evil Village Shadows of Rose is coming on October 28 across all major platforms and will be available on Nintendo Switch via the cloud on December 2.
