If you’ve finished Resident Evil 7, please continue. If not, don’t! Because Capcom has commented on something that’s been bugging fans since they’ve finished the game.
Note: Spoilers ahead!
At the end of Resident Evil 7, a character named “Redfield” descends out of a helicopter, takes off his mask and helmet, and says, “I’m Redfield.”

Of course, Capcom has already announced that Chris Redfield is getting his own DLC...

But some folks still believe that the character is Hunk.
“If were to put in the CG model of Chris we’ve used up to now, it would feel like dropping in a character from a different world.” Thus, Capcom thought, the illusion would be broken.
Instead, players were all going, “Who’s this dude?”
The character model for Resident Evil 6's Chris is realistic, but yet, still somewhat distorted. “His head and his body don’t match up with an actual human,” Nakanishi explains, “and the way [the character’s] data was made was completely different. Because of this, we looked for a model, redid [the character] by photoscan, and RE7's Chris was born.”
Here is said model, apparently, a New Zealander living in Tokyo named George Dandy.

This isn’t as much fun as the conspiracy! But maybe Capcom can work in the Hunk bit after the fact.
