Following the release of the live action Resident Evil: Extinction to cinemas, Japanese publisher and developer Capcom has announced plans for a new full-length CG animation feature, also based on the popular Resident Evil series of games.

The surprise announcement was made by Capcom Japan, who announced the feature as Biohazard: Degeneration Biohazard being the Japanese name for the Resident Evil series.

Although receiving mixed critical acclaim, the trilogy of live action movies has been a considerable success for Capcom, with the first two movies both grossing more than $100 million at the international box office.

Extinction has seen the biggest opening so far for the movie series, with a fourth film already confirmed. A live action spin-offs featuring the Claire Redfield character has also been suggested, the character like most in the three movies bearing little relation to her portrayal in the games.

The new CG (computer generated) movie will be created in co-operation with Sony Pictures Japanese subsidiary SPEJ. Few other details have been released, though, with only the promise of groundbreaking visual effects and a brand-new story line. The feature is planned for released in 2008, although it is not clear whether as a cinema or DVD release.
