Capcom has officially confirmed that the dummy finger in Resident Evil 7’s demo has no use. For weeks fans have been scratching their heads about the significance of the item, and now the mystery is solved…Or is it?

In an email sent to fans who joined the series’ Ambassador Program, Capcom posted an image that teases the possibility of using the finger in the future. It reads, “The path is closed, but patience.” Whether the finger will play a role in the full game or an update to the demo remains unclear.
