Capcom has big plans for the Resident Evil franchise as a new report claims that there’s at least five games in development at the company. Last year, Capcom released the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4 remake which was one of many remakes from the series including Resident Evil 2 and 3 before that. This isn’t including mainline releases such as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Resident Evil Village.
According to reliable leaker Dusk Golem, who has a decent track record of accurate leaks from Capcom and Konami, at least five Resident Evil games are currently in development at Capcom which includes Resident Evil 9. He later adds that one of these projects could be released in late 2026 or early 2027, though didn’t mention which one.
It makes sense that Capcom would double down on more Resident Evil games as it’s currently the company’s most profitable IP next to Monster Hunter. With five projects to speculate on, we can only assume that at least one of them might be another remake, possibly of Resident Evil: Code Veronica or, if the tradition of remaking past mainline titles continues, a remake of Resident Evil 5.
Fans also speculate that a remake of the first Resident Evil could also be on the table as it has yet to receive a “modernised” remake apart from its GameCube remake two decades ago. There’s also the possibility of a third Revelations game, the spin-off series which usually focuses on other side characters and stories from the franchise’s universe.
In related news, Capcom is getting ready to release Dragon’s Dogma 2 next month, the highly anticipated sequel to the cult classic RPG. Beyond that, Capcom also has plans to continue supporting Street Fighter 6 with post-launch content and updates. The release date for its mysterious title, Pragmata, is unfortunately nowhere to be seen, though we suspect that it might be targeting a release this year.
