Resident Evil 9 already in sight? It could be the longest developing chapter

A little less than a month has passed since the release of Resident Evil Village, and the first rumors about Resident Evil 9 are already beginning to emerge. It seems quite early to talk about the next main chapter of the Capcom survival horror saga, but apparently there are those who seem to have the first information on what is the current phase of development of the next title in the saga; will rumors be usual or are there really foundations in these statements?

The first rumors about the elusive Resident Evil 9 are run by the well-known insider Dusk Golem, who has always been very close to the survival horror genre and especially to the Resident Evil. Recently, the insider had already stated in March, via his Twitter profile, that Resident Evil 9 would already be in development and could be the last numbered chapter of the series. Now, in a new tweet, he reveals that the sequel would be in development as early as 2018.

“Resident Evil 9 has been in development since 2018, when it comes out it will be by far the Resident Evil game that has been in development the longest (probably around 6-7 years of development), this is Dusk's statement. Golem. Obviously, we are talking about rumors that must be taken absolutely with a grain of salt at the moment, but it is absolutely possible that Capcom has really started at least the pre-production phase of the ninth main chapter of Resident Evil.

RE9 started dev in 2018, when it releases it'll be by far the RE game that's been in dev the longest (probably about 6-7 years of dev).

While we await the next official information on the future of the saga of Resident Evil, many fans have yet to know the continuation of the story of Ethan and Chris in the Romanian village that is the backdrop to the events of the eighth chapter of the Capcom horror brand.

What is certain is that it will still be some time before we see the ninth chapter of the Resident Evil saga. In the meantime, if you haven't done so yet, you can purchase your copy of Resident Evil Village on Amazon at this address.
