Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, seems to say that this IS the last film in the franchise. It is the sixth over the last fifteen years and it has a January 2017 release date, and per standard marketing verbiage, it's being described as more gritty and raw compared to its previous incarnations.
I'm thinking, raw, as in exposed entertainment nerves that only take so much of the same thing over and over.
All joking aside, it is a slightly personal favorite franchise of mine, and as far as video game to movie transitions go, it is the most successful.
