Capcom has been on a roll with the Resident Evil franchise. The remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 released in 2019 and 2020 respectively, while the next entry in the franchise, Resident Evil Village, will launch on May 7 for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Video game insider AestheticGamer via Twitter said that Capcom has been developing the ninth entry in the popular survival horror series since at least late 2018. However, he doesn't expect Resident Evil 9 to release until 2024. 

The insider said that in late 2018 Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil Outrage, Resident Evil 4, and Resident Evil 9 were all in development. 

It is becoming more clear that Capcom wants to make the Resident Evil franchise an annual release or at least semi-annual.

Does Capcom have some secret biolab where they grow development teams? Don't see how else they could manage this.

I believe they have several internal RES teams plus 3 external studios working on all of the projects. RE3 Remake was primarily external with only a small internal team overseeing development, and RE4 Remake was also going to be external lead, but it was recently reported that Capcom decided to pull the game from M-Two and bring it internal due to a disagreement with M-Two on rather it should be a faithful remake or make changes to the gameplay.

As long as they keep the quality up. Resident 2 was awesome, 3 I just kind of coasted through and was glad I only paid $15 for it. Hope they do make the rumored Revelations 3 in there as well.

He says he thinks that Outrage was Revelations 3 and got a name change, but still might end up being called Revelations 3 or something else. Says it will be announced soon after RE8 releases and release by Q1 2022. Says he thinks it might be a Switch lead cross-gen game on everything from Switch to XB1/PS4 to Xbox Series/PS5 and PC.
