Capcom says it still has a major “unannounced” game planned to release before March 2024, leading many to speculate that it could either be the next mainline Monster Hunter or a new Resident Evil. However, a prominent Capcom leaker claims that no Resident Evil remakes are planned to release in 2024, adding that the recent Code Veronica leak on 4chan is false.
A 4chan post recently started gaining traction when an anonymous leaker claimed that Capcom was close to finishing a remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica. Leaker Dusk Golem, who has a history of accurate Capcom leaks, dismissed the 4chan post as false. However, they added that no Resident Evil remakes are currently planned to launch in 2024. The next release in the franchise will likely be Resident Evil 9, which also had details leaked in the past.
“But anyway, there is a big Capcom game that’s being announced in late 2023 and releasing in 2024,” said Dusk Golem. “But it’s not a Resident Evil game.”
Of course, this only adds more fuel to the fire that the mysterious game being announced in late 2023, possibly at The Game Awards, is none other than a new Monster Hunter game; more specifically, the follow-up to the monumentally successful 2018 release, Monster Hunter World. The release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 has already been confirmed for 22 March 2024 following a rating in Saudi Arabia.
2024 will be the 20th anniversary of the Monster Hunter franchise so it makes sense that Capcom would want to release a new entry in the series to coincide with the celebration. However, with Dragon’s Dogma 2 already occupying Capcom’s release window of Q1 2024, it’s possible that the new Monster Hunter could release a bit later next year. If Dusk Golem is to be believed, then we can only expect the next Resident Evil game to launch sometime in 2025.
