Plus, the demo may be updated to be more representative of the final game, too.

Resident Evil 7 looks to be a departure from the last few entries of the franchise. And nothing characterizes this as well as the fact that at the time, there is no online mode planned for the upcoming installment in the long running survival horror franchise.

In a new interview with YugaTech (via WCCFTech), Resident Evil 7 producer Masachika Kawata confirmed that as of right now, no online mode for the game is planned. Considering that we are now a little over three months from release, it is unlikely that one will be added into the game at the last minute.

Resident Evil 7 is not supporting any online modes. So for example, with Resident Evil 5, we focused on cooperative online play, which was well-received. But the key concept of Resident Evil 7 is horror, so from the very beginning, we thought that playing alone will give the best horror experience,” he explained.

He also talked about the demo of Resident Evil 7– so far, it has been made available for PS4 exclusively. Kawata expressed a desire to see it on other platforms, if he could. He also discussed updating the PS4 demo, to make it more representative of the game as a whole.

“We do plan to update the demo on PSN for the players to experience the other aspects of the game. We don’t have a fixed date [for the release], but it will definitely be out before the game comes out.”

Resident Evil 7 is going to release in January 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
