It will come as no surprise to fans of the series but at some point, we will likely get Resident Evil 9, a follow-up to 2021’s Resident Evil Village. But what may surprise some is that five games are reportedly in the works from Capcom’s ever-popular survival horror series.
The last game to be released in Capcom’s series was the Resident Evil 4 remake of 2023. Alongside the success of new stories being told, such as Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village, fans have enjoyed remakes that began with the Nintendo GameCube classic of 2002.
Check out the Resident Evil 4 remake trailer below!
As reported by Eurogamer (via Reddit), industry leaker Dusk Golem believes that Resident Evil fans have a lot to look forward to in the near future. Dusk Golem suggests that Resident Evil 9 will arrive between 2026 and 2027. Fans will be hoping that one of the five games will be the heavily rumoured remake of Resident Evil Code: Veronica. It might also be a safe bet that Resident Evil Revelations 3 might be another game in the works if I were to take a guess.
On the Reddit forum, fans have been also speculating that the original game in the series will be getting another remake. Sure, the 2002 remake still holds up well today especially when playing its remaster, but it's an intriguing prospect nonetheless of what Capcom could achieve with this classic using the RE Engine. Fans have also been itching for Resident Evil Outbreak to be remade and outside of the series, Dino Crisis is a constant popular choice amongst the community.
At this time, we should take all rumours with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. That being said, with a bit of luck, Capcom might announce at least one Resident Evil game this year. As they say, watch this space.
For the more immediate future, the Resident Evil 4 remake and its Separate Ways DLC are available now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and compatible Apple devices.
