According to a reputable Resident Evil leaker, it seems as though Capcom may be swapping Rebecca Chambers' race in Resident Evil: Outrage.
Reputable Resident Evil leaker AestheticGamer has since provided some more insight into what Resident Evil: Outrage could entail. According to AestheticGamer's information, Resident Evil: Outrage features Rebecca Chambers as the main protagonist, and it will likely have a college university setting. The game is said to essentially be Resident Evil: Revelations 3, and will likely launch as a timed-Switch exclusive.
AestheticGamer has since shared more details they've heard about Resident Evil: Outrage, particularly when it comes to Rebecca Chambers. According to their information, Rebecca is Asian now, whereas she was white in the other Resident Evil games. Capcom has apparently used a Japanese model for Rebecca Chambers this time around. It's unclear how fans will react to this, but Rebecca's race has never been important to her character, so it's unlikely to create that much of a stir.
This wouldn't even be the first time that Rebecca Chambers' race has been swapped. In fact, Resident Evil stage play called Biohazard: The Stage saw Japanese actress Rin Asuka take on the role of Rebecca. And what's more, there are numerous elements from Biohazard: The Stage that seem to line up with the Resident Evil: Outrage leaks, including its supposed university setting.
