A new rumour suggests that Capcom has set a release date for Resident Evil 9 sometime in 2025. Additionally, a new title from the publisher will apparently be revealed later this year, scheduled to launch in fall 2024. We know very little about the anticipated follow-up to Resident Evil Village, the eighth mainline entry in the survival horror franchise. A previous leak might’ve given us some details about the game already, though.
According to known leaker Dusk Golem, who has a history of leaking accurate information from Capcom, Konami and several other publishers, Capcom is reportedly planning to release Resident Evil 9 in 2025 with a reveal potentially scheduled for sometime next year. The game is apparently in development under the codename “Resident Evil Apocalypse” and might feature mythological creatures like goat-man, wendigos and other folklore monsters. Other gameplay elements were revealed in the previous leak which you can read right here.
Dusk Golem also teased another title that Capcom is set to unveil later this year with a release planned for fall 2024. Many fans suspect that this is the next mainline Monster Hunter game and successor to Monster Hunter World, which the team had been quietly working on over the past few years. It’s possible that this unannounced mystery game could be something else entirely, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
As with all rumours and reports, take this with a pinch of salt for now until we get some confirmation from Capcom. As for Resident Evil 9, 2025 seems like a fairly safe bet considering Capcom’s current schedule of releasing new Resident Evil games every second year. After the success of the Resident Evil 4 remake, it’s unclear if Capcom has plans to remake more of its older titles. Fans have been demanding a remake of Dino Crisis for years now, so hopes are always high whenever leaks like this happen.
