Creative Assembly artist’s work reaveals artwork for cancelled Resident Evil 7 pitch

Artwork for what appears to be a cancelled Resident Evil 7 pitch has surfaced on the online portfolio of Creative Assembly’s concept artist, Brad Wright. The artist has worked with the company since the year 2012, four months prior to Resident Evil 6’s launch, and his contributions include artwork for Alien: Isolation.

The concept art for what apparently could have been Resident Evil 7 can be seen below.

The web link for these images is as follows:

This could have been a concept pitch compiled by Creative Assembly for how the developer envisions a potential seventh game in the Resident Evil series, and was ultimately cancelled internally prior to Capcom’s approval or later rejected by Capcom itself.

On the other hand, it may also have been freelance work done by the artist for an undisclosed company at some point while or before working at Creative Assembly.

As interesting as it would have been to see Creative Assembly’s take on Resident Evil, especially after Alien: Isolation, these concepts merely represent a proof of concept for a project that never really took off.
