Tipster Dusk Golem revealed that Capcom is already working on Resident Evil 9, despite the fact that the next chapter in the series, Resident Evil Village, isn’t even out yet. That said, we shouldn’t expect it to be released in 2024 at the earliest.
On Twitter, the leaker, who has a solid track record when it comes to Resident Evil (and still insists there is a new Silent Hill game coming), claims Resident Evil 9 was in the works as early as 2018, to which point Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remake and others were still in production.
You can read Dusk Golem’s tweets below.
Wait until you find out that there was a period when RE: 2, RE: 3, RE8, Outrage, RE: 4, and RE9 were all in development at the exact same time (late 2018). https://t.co/UMzFRSK7mt

The insider also recently provided more details about the highly anticipated Resident Evil Outrage, which is being described as a CODE: Veronica tier game starring Rebecca Chambers. It is believed to be a timed Nintendo Switch exclusive and will launch in early 2022.
Resident Evil is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with the original game launched in Japan on March 22, 1996 as Biohazard for PlayStation. In addition to RE Village, we also get a multiplayer spin-off known as Resident Evil RE: Verse this spring.
