Resident Evil 9 could be the last part with a number in the title that tells a story related to other games.
Resident Evil Village, the latest part of the well-known horror game series, will appear in May. But Capcom has already planned beyond that. Resident Evil 9 has been in development since 2018.
With the numbers in the game name and the contexts, part 9 should obviously come to an end.
At least that’s what the insider AestheticGamer says.
Because while the upcoming Resident Evil Villiage is a direct successor to Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 9 will also be linked to these two predecessors. Capcom planned it that way and decided the end of the story with part 9.
After that, the developers want to leave this “number game” or the concept of numbering behind.
A Resident Evil 10, which will then probably not have a 10 in the title, should not tell a story that was planned in advance, but a self-contained story, according to the insider.
(2/2) RE7> RE8> RE9 have a coherent, planned story, as they all ended up close together in development.
I’m also guessing that’s why they want to get past numbered titles after RE9 to tell more self-contained stories rather than having to plan stories in advance, but it’s cool here.
