Capcom has not yet confirmed the development of a sequel to Resident Evil Village, but it is clear that the studio is working on such a project, besides leaks are already at hand.
Resident Evil 9 will again be in the continuity of Resident Evil Village, which itself was a sequel to RE 7, the episode will thus complete a trilogy.
It is on 4Chan that we learn about the upcoming title that would be named internally “Resident Evil Apocalypse”, it is also stated that the word “moon” could be associated with the title in its final version.
The game would focus its actions in a western ghost town that would be littered with mythical monsters. We’re talking about goat men, Wendigos. The game would revolve around an event called “the nine full moons” and the player would be immersed in a very natural environment with caves, rivers, camping and small town.
This would return to a very mystical atmosphere instead of the zombies that made the saga so successful. The main antagonist would again be a woman named Glaistig, she would wear a green and golden dress and would introduce herself as a witch. We see here a very strong connection with Mother Miranda from Resident Evil Village, except that Glaistig would regularly intervene in the form of mini fights like Nemesis or Mr X from previous titles.
The player would also be helped by the fact that she would be the main character of the game
The player would also be helped by Hulder, a new female character who would also be a biological weapon. We would also find the Duke, the immortal merchant from Resident Evil Village. We should also expect to find an important character of the franchise, who could feed and disappear during this episode.
A boss is mentioned: it would be the Barghest, a giant black dog that will chase the player from house to house.
The title was originally supposed to be released in 2023, but in the end it’s the Resident Evil 4 remake that will occupy the next year. We would then have to wait until 2024 to see this Resident Evil Apocalypse arrive.
