The two games that many would have believed the likeliest candidates for upcoming remakes aren't being currently looked at by Capcom, it's claimed.

Capcom has enjoyed incredible critical and commercial success with Resident Evil over the last 7-8 years in particular, so it’s no surprise that the company continues to double down on the survival horror franchise. Reports have previously claimed that there are as many as five Resident Evil games in development at Capcom, with the company itself having stated last year that it intends to develop more RE remakes.

It turns out, however, that the remakes that many would have guessed would be the likeliest to release next are not being worked on after all, according to prominent leaker Dusk Golem.

Recent leaks claimed that a second remake of Resident Evil 1 was in development and expected to release in 2026, coinciding with the series’ 30th anniversary. According to Dusk Golem, those claims are “bulls**t”.

“As far as I know, Resident Evil 1 is not in any form of development at all right now,” the leaker says.

Meanwhile, while many would have expected that after remakes of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4Resident Evil 5 would be up next, as per Dusk Golem, a remake of the 2009 action horror game isn’t actually in development.

Instead, they claim that remakes of Resident Evil Zero and Code: Veronica are instead in development, and that Resident Evil 9 has been delayed to late 2025 at the earliest.
