At the end of the new Resident Evil film adaptation, you have it not all characters live out of Raccoon City before the small town was razed to the ground by the Umbrella Corporation.

Der totgeglaubte S.T.A.R.S.-Captain Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper) wasn’t buried under the rubble of Raccoon City. Instead, he wakes alive in the mid-credit scene in a morgue. The resurrected Wesker is greeted by none other than the one known from the Resident Evil games There’s Wong (Lily Gao).

Ada Wong reveals herself to be Albert Wesker’s secret contact. We previously learned that he recruited by an unknown organization was to recover samples of the dangerous G-Virus from the Spencer Mansion before Raccoon City is destroyed. We don’t find out who Ada Wong really works for. She also works in the Resident Evil Games for a nameless competitor of the Umbrella Corporation.

At the end of the bonus scene there is another surprise for fans of the games. Because Albert Wesker has after his resuscitation (probably due to a virus variant) photosensitive eyes. In order to be able to see without pain, Ada Wong gave him the striking sunglasseswho defines his character in the Resident Evil franchise.

Albert Wesker Lives: What the credits for Resident Evil 2 mean

Welcome to Raccoon City roughly adapts the events of the first three Resident Evil games, all set in 1998. In the end, Albert Wesker’s resurrection paves the way for a possible sequel, the plot of which is based on the games Resident Evil: Code Veronica could assume.

Code Veronica is playing three months after the destruction of Raccoon City. In it, Albert Wesker appears as the antagonist and is sent as an agent of the nameless organization to Rockfort Island, where he is supposed to steal a sample of the T-Veronica virus. The island is home to an Umbrella Corporation prison complex where a virus outbreak is causing a lot of zombie trouble. There is also a Reunion with Chris and Claire Redfield as the main characters.

In Welcome to Raccoon City, there is another indication that a potential sequel could adapt the plot of Code Veronica. Because in the game the History of the Ashford Twins tells that experiments with the T virus were suspended. We see this briefly in the Resident Evil film on an old video recording that Claire and Leon discover in the laboratory under the Spencer Villa.

The continuation of the Resident Evil reboot could also unite several games again. Among other things in an interview with Comic Book expressed director Johannes Roberts the wish to watch the games Next, film Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4 to want. And Albert Wesker could be the ideal villain for that.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City has been running since 25. November 2021 in German cinemas. The horror film was made by the FSK Approved from 16 years of age.
