As a cult franchise, we had to expect to see a Resident Evil 9 tumble one day. By the way, has a date just leaked? We explain what you need to know.
Resident Evil Village (aka episode 8) was a very good hit for Capcom, in particular by exceeding last June (2023 at the writing of this news) the symbolic bar of 8 million copies. It was enough for the Japanese publisher to want to make a new episode. At least that’s what we can learn from the information of an insider who tells us about the release date of RE9.

Speaking on Discord, insider Dusk Golem leaked new information related to resident Evil. This is not the first time, since he has been a bit of a specialist for several years. The difference is that this time it concerns the release date of a certain Resident Evil 9. Here is all of his comments on the said game which, for the record, has not been officially confirmed by Capcom:
2025 is what I will say, but it will probably be announced next year. I won’t answer any more questions about RE, but I’ll throw that bone to the bone. There’s a big Capcom game that will be announced at the end of the year and will be released in the fall of 2024, and it’s likely that RE9 will be announced next year and will be released in 2025.
According to the various rumors, the game is apparently in development under the codename Resident Evil Apocalypse and could feature mythological creatures like the satyr, wendigos, and other folkloric monsters. Dusk Golem also teased another title that Capcom is expected to unveil later this year with a release slated for Fall 2024.
