A new rumor claims that it has details about the next Tile in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil ApocaIXpse.
This new rumor comes from the EvilHazard website. He states that the next title will be ApocaIXpse, like its predecessor VILLAGE, which combines the number nine in Roman numerals with the name. This will follow the story after the main RE Village story.
This supposedly new upcoming title will star one of the main characters in the RE universe, Chris Redfield. As evidenced by the RE Village DLC storyline, Chris at least survives until Rose Winters becomes a teenager. This will be a single player game with no co-op feature.
Players will meet familiar faces in this game, such as Jill Valentine, who returns to the story and will play a role similar to Ada in RE4. She will act alone but will help Chris from time to time.
The story will follow Chris, who heads to the BSAA headquarters in Europe right after the end of RE Village. It seems there is a new threat after Mother Miranda, possibly another Umbrella executive who has created her own “projects”.
Rumor has it that the game has been in development for two years and it will use a lot of assets from RE Village and RE4 Remake. Another source claims that this new game has been in development for 6-7 years.
Claire Redfield will have a brief cameo, Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong won’t appear in this title, and it looks like Rebecca Chambers and Barry Burton won’t appear either. Out of the “star-studded” cast, only Jill returns.
The game’s ending will be about the sacrifice of a loved one, but Chris doesn’t die in Rose’s story, so it could be another character. The new enemies that will appear in this game are monsters from mythology. Instead of monsters of the supernatural, these creatures will be explained in scientific terms. These are beings that were twisted by a mad scientist.
Zombies will return here as well, but only in certain parts of the game. There will be another castle too similar to Ramón Salazar’s or Lady Dimitrescu’s.
As for the official reveal? It is claimed to be announced sometime between October and November 2023.
For now, take all these new details with a grain of salt.
