According to notoriously reliable Twitter user AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, Capcom is allegedly working on five new Resident Evil titles, including the the next mainline installment, Resident Evil 9.
Dusk Golem reportedly made the announcement on Discord, saying:
Yup, I know of 5 RE games in dev right now including RE9. One of these projects could be released in late 2026/early 2027.
Dusk Golem said that Resident Evil 9 is set to be the “biggest budget & longest development time of any RE game to date” and is considered by Capcom to be a chance to “move onto new story arcs and focuses” and “take the series in new directions.” He also said that “RE9 is [sort of] both a closing [and] beginning chapter for things in Capcom’s eyes,” and that it will likely be revealed this year and released in 2025.
As far as remakes are concerned, the most likely candidate is Code Veronica, which was originally released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000, with an enhanced version titled Code Veronica X for PS2 released in 2001. Other possible contenders are Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil Zero, and another remake of the original game. The 2002 remake of the original title is still considered by many to be one of the best in the series.
Capcom has not officially confirmed any of this, so as always, take these rumors with a big first-aid spray of salt. We will post updates as soon as we have more concrete info on Capcom’s slate of upcoming releases.
