Resident Evil 9 appears to be a significant project for Capcom. The Resident Evil series is one of the most well-established horror game franchises, featuring acclaimed titles like Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, along with successful spin-offs. The franchise has undergone transformations, introducing new characters and changing perspectives, notably with games like Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil: Village, which added werewolves and vampires, shifting to a first-person view. Although there were doubts among fans, these changes were well-received. Resident Evil: Village concluded the Ethan Winters storyline, leaving fans curious about the next steps.

According to a trusted Resident Evil source, Dusk Golem (via GamingBible), Resident Evil 9 is set for a 2025 release. It's anticipated to have the largest budget and longest development time in the series, commencing production in 2018, a year after Resident Evil 7. This suggests it's been in development alongside Resident Evil: Village. The game is expected to mark both an end and a new beginning for Capcom, potentially leading the series in a different direction. The specifics remain a mystery, but with the substantial investment in time and resources, Capcom seemingly holds high expectations for the project. Resident Evil is currently enjoying a peak in popularity, achieving success with recent releases and remakes since 2017.

Capcom's decision on continuing the first-person perspective for future Resident Evil games remains uncertain. Resident Evil 9 might opt to move away from that style, aiming to 'return to its origins'. Alternatively, the developer might choose to categorize the series into different game types, with remakes adopting a certain perspective and new mainline games sticking to the first-person approach. Both strategies have been successful, so solely focusing on one could be limiting the variety that has brought Capcom considerable success in recent years.
