At Least 5 New Resident Evil Titles Are Rumored To Be In Development, Including Resident Evil 9

At least 5 new titles in Capcom’s survival horror series, Resident Evil, are in development, including Resident Evil 9, based on the latest rumor.

AestheticGamer (aka DuskGolem), who is known for his insight on unannounced projects in the game industry, took to Discord to reveal that at least 5 new Resident Evil games are currently in development at Capcom, one of which is Resident Evil 9.

DuskGolem also mentioned that he has received a major update on a Resident Evil project some time ago, and that he’s very excited for it. However, he added that the game is unlikely to be released until late 2026 or early 2027. He refrained from revealing any further details on the game, as it is far from release at this point.

A few months ago, DuskGolem had shared that Resident Evil 9 has the biggest budget and longest development time of any title in the series to date. He added that the game has been in development since 2018. Furthermore, Golem mentioned that the development of Resident Evil 9 is going really well, as was the case with the Resident Evil 4 remake. He pointed out that the latter was actually released sooner than expected after the internal reboot, as development had been surprisingly smooth.

In addition, he said that Capcom considers Resident Evil 9 to be a closing chapter for a few things to move on from to new story arcs and focuses, and, ultimately, take the series in a new direction. Therefore, from Capcom’s perspective, the 9th entry in the Resident Evil series is, in a way, both a closing as well as an opening chapter for things to come, he said. Additionally, DuskGolem had shared that Resident Evil 9 isn’t as direct a sequel to Resident Evil 8 as the latter was to Resident Evil 7. Though, he added that Resident Evil 8 and 9’s plots were planned together to help lead to the aforementioned closing to the current arc.
