After three long years, Resident Evil fans have finally received some great news. In a recent Capcom Next, the company has announced that they are currently working on a Resident Evil game and no, this one is not a remake, but a mainline entry into the series.

Rumours regarding the same have been cooking for a long time, after all, it is one of the biggest franchises. However, fans were surprised that Capcom took this much time to announce the new Resident Evil 9.

The reveal was done by Koshi Nakanishi, Director of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, which was one of the biggest entries in the series and the first game to use the new RE Engine. The new game engine added more realism to further enhance the horror element of the game, which was loved by the fans.

“We’re making a new Resident Evil. It was really difficult to figure out what to do after [RE] 7. But I found it, and to be honest, it feels substantial. I can’t share any details, but I hope you’re excited for the day I can,” Nakanishi said.

More Resident Evil Remakes are also underway

The new RE Engine is also being used to slowly remake all the classic games. RE3, RE3 and RE4 remake were also quite popular on release, although, the RE3 remake saw some controversy over cut content and too linear progression.

As per the previous announcement from the company, Resident Evil Zero and Code Veronica are also getting a remake. All the older games will likely see a remake. This is great for people who want to experience the game with better visuals.
