According to the supposed leaks, Resident Evil 9 is going to be set in a “ghost town” in the west, with players able to explore caves, rivers, and a “creepy forest area.” Players will have to contend with “deformed” wendigo creatures that have been likened to mythological monsters. It’s said that these monsters will be able to mimic human voices and transform into friendly-looking NPCs, mirroring the skin-walker urban legends. There will also be a “giant black dog enemy” that players have to deal with, assuming the information is legitimate.
Is Resident Evil 9 coming?
Nonetheless, considering Capcom’s past behaviour, we will likely see the next game of the series in 2024. Industry insider Dusk Golem stated in a Tweet that the RE 9 game has been in development since 2018 and that when it finally releases, it will have been in development for longer than any other Resident Evil game.

What will Resident Evil 9 be called?
An anonymous leaker has come forward with details regarding Resident Evil 9, which will apparently be called RE: Apocalypse.
One of the main villains is said to be a woman who dresses in a green and gold gown, with the video pointing out how they sound similar to Mother Miranda from Resident Evil Village. In the meantime, one of the other monsters in the area will actually be friendly to the player and fill Resident Evil 9‘s merchant role as well, if the leaks are to be believed.
Allegedly titled “Resident Evil Apocalypse,” the 9th instalment in the horror franchise will introduce a brand-new setting, and some terrifying new monsters – at least, according to the leak. Set in a ghost town surrounded by thick forests, the game will apparently focus on a mysterious “9th Moon Phase,” and will see the player battling foes in a variety of claustrophobic caves, shacks, and rivers.
According to this leak, Resident Evil 9 is heavily inspired by folk tales and mythology, which extends to the game’s story, setting, and monsters. The leaker claims that the game is going to focus on body horror more than the series ever has before, and will include a slew of new monsters, two of which are allegedly called “Wendigo” and “Goatman.”
But according to this leak, these monsters are much more than they seem on the surface. Apparently, these new monsters will be able to shape-shift and will often disguise themselves as friendly human NPCs that the player has met earlier, and that they’ve since killed off-screen. This could, obviously, be used to trick the player multiple times, and could potentially keep the player on their toes for the entirety of the game’s length. The leak also states that these new monsters can shape-shift at will, using some pretty intelligent AI. One of the bosses in Resident Evil 9 is also described in this leak, apparently being a gigantic black dog called a Barghest, which comes straight from Northern English folklore. If these leaks are even remotely accurate, then Resident Evil 9 could turn out to be one terrifying horror experience.
