A large leak published on 4chan revealed potential first information.

Resident Evil Apocalypse?

It goes without saying that with Resident Evil VII and the sequel Resident Evil Village, the saga has been revived and the scenario clearly shows that a new game is in preparation for the end ( ?) in this new trilogy. First of all, Capcom’s plans are apparently for the anticipated remake of Resident Evil 4, but the first rumors about Resident Evil 9 have started to hatch.

The latest so far has been released on 4chan, plus archived by moderators. We remember that this pattern has already happened for the previous opus, the leak then contains a ton of honest information (and the same is true for Resident Evil 7). However, this should be taken with a grain of salt.although the author of the leak claims to be 100% sure of the following details.

The game will then be called – maybe inside – Resident Evil Apocalypsewith the possibility that the word Moon was mixed into the final title or the jacket. The plot takes place in a Western ghost town inhabited by mythical monsters, such as goats and wendigos, and revolve around the nine full moons that one of the characters wishes for. The frame will include various decorations such as caves, a river, a small town and even a campsite.

For example, some enemies can now assume human form, posing as friendly NPCs before attacking. The information will prove to have been broadcast by another leaker before.

First of all, the main antagonist will once again be a woman, named Glaistig and wears a green dress, covered with golden elements, and resembles a witch. Something that reminds Mother Miranda of the previous adventure: this mysterious Glaistig acts as a recurring enemy, like Nemessis, Mr. X or Lady Dimitrescu.

A new character will also be introduced, viz Hulder, a woman who can also be a biological weapon and who helps the player as a main guide.

together, a vehicle discovered in Resident Evil Village will support this potentially massive leak : its license plate exactly matches the previous information. Thus, “NX” refer to “next”, “23” in the year 2023 and “Grandpa” to “Apocalypse”, which is the assumed name of the game.

Note that the release year of 2023 is no longer relevant due to Resident Evil 4 which, according to rumors, will be released in 2022 before being posted to next January. Unless it’s the 2023 fiscal year, which ends in 2024…

Again, everything should not be taken at face value and not easily carried away. However, Capcom is always subject to leaks and even without mentioning RE7 and Village, the remake of Resident Evil 4 also leaked on the web several times before its announcement. So we will not be surprised if the current case proves to be true, or at least in part.
