Resident Evil 9 & Resident Evil 4 Remake in development
With Resident Evil Village on its way, there is a ton of speculation about what Capcom has planned next, and it seems that the RE9 might already be in production, along with some other projects.
There is a ton of anticipation for the upcoming Resident Evil Village, as new details keep emerging to feed the hype. However, it’s rumored that Capcom is already working on another follow up in the form of Resident Evil 9.
Some new information has popped up which suggests that the developers have been working on the title for a while now, at the same time as their other projects such as the RE4 remake. Here’s everything we know about this so far.
This was all revealed by Dusk Golem who took to Twitter in order to discuss Capcom’s announced and rumored Resident Evil titles. According to him, the devs had their hands full with multiple projects in 2018.
He has spoken about the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 remake in the past, along with RE Outrage, but this time was different. In the latest tweet, he also brought up Resident Evil 9 for the first time.

He explained; “Wait until you find out that there was a period of time that RE:2, RE:3, RE8, Outrage, RE:4 & RE9 were all in development at the exact same time (late 2018).” This led to a few fans getting hyped about the possibility of seeing some Resident Evil 9 news soon.
“I literally cannot see it releasing before 2024,” he said. “To the point it’s actually not worth even talking about right now, anything could happen to it in dev, from the whole thing being rebooted (it’s happened a lot in the RE series).”
That could mean that RE9 will end up having a six-year development cycle. Capcom often works on multiple projects simultaneously, so a 2024 release isn’t entirely out of the question.
With Resident Evil Village set to release on May 7, 2021, fans of the franchise have a lot to look forward to, and you get a taste of what’s to come in the the game’s “Maiden” demo.
