Resident Evil 9 will be released early next year according to the latest leaks

It won’t be long before fans of Capcom’s survival horror franchise can play the next installment. That’s like the latest whispers of the inevitable Resident Evil 9 are to be believed. The new update comes from Dusk Golem, a prominent horror game leaker who previously revealed details about Silent Hill: the short message before the surprise release.

In a wire on X (formerly Twitter) Dusk Golem claims that Resident Evil 9 will be revealed relatively soon for a 2025 release. “If what I heard before is true, the release should happen in January,” the leaker writes. While still unconfirmed, the timeline makes sense given Capcom’s release frequency for RE games. This has remained quite stable since then. RE7 in 2017. Since then, the publisher has released four major titles (new titles or remakes) every two years, the most recent of which is the RE4 remake from last year. 2018, 2022 and 2024 are the only years Capcom hasn’t released a main title.

In the thread, Dusk Golem claims that RE9 originally began development in 2018, around the same time Village went into development. Both titles would become possible RE8of Village ultimately claiming the title, while RE9 continued to be developed. That would mean that RE9 will have had the longest development period of any game in the franchise to date. According to Dusk Golem, RE9 will also have the largest budget spent on any game in the series. In previous leaks, Dusk Golem claimed as much RE9 could possibly be a more open world title.

As for what other story or mechanics the game has in store, Dusk Golem says they will “let Capcom do their thing” and surprise people. If the leaks are to be believed, it seems likely that we will only have to wait until the summer to see what exactly Resident Evil 9 has in store for us.
