While many fans are currently waiting for the release of the horror game Resident Evil Village (also known as Resident Evil 8), Capcom already seems to have prepared for the future of the series. As the well-known insider and leaker "Dusk Golem" claims via Twitter, the next episode is already in development – Resident Evil 9.

According to him, work on the horror game started towards the end of 2018. At that time, several episodes of the series were in development at the same time – including Resident Evil Village and the remake of Resident Evil 3. However, "Dusk Golem " in another tweet It is clear that Resident Evil 9 is not expected to be released in the near future.

According to his estimates, publication is not expected until 2024 at the earliest – and much later in fact. In addition, a lot could change in the course of development, so that a reboot of the work and thus delays cannot be excluded.
