Capcom has a history of consistently delivering Resident Evil titles across various generations, ensuring a steady stream of new main games and remakes to satisfy fans without noticeable gaps in release schedules. The next installment on the horizon appears to be Resident Evil 9, with several rumors converging around this speculation.

Key points to note include:

  • The game may be revealed soon with a scheduled release date in January 2025.
  • Allegedly, the development cycle for Resident Evil 9 commenced seven years ago. Capcom is known for working on multiple Resident Evil projects simultaneously. For instance, Village initially began development as Resident Evil 8, then evolved into a spin-off before ultimately becoming Resident Evil 8. Notably, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 8, and Resident Evil 9 were in development concurrently.
  • Resident Evil 9 is purportedly the largest-budgeted and longest development cycle of any Resident Evil game to date.
  • Leon S. Kennedy is rumored to make a return in this new chapter, set in 2025. Fans should not expect a younger iteration of Leon in this installment. However, it’s worth noting that the rumor only addresses the beginning of the game, leaving room for Capcom to introduce additional main characters.

Thanks, Resetera.
