Resident Evil 9 May Have Leaked Its Protagonist & More Details

More and more leaks are surfacing with details about Resident Evil 9, the highly anticipated new installment of Capcom’s popular franchise. While the company has not yet confirmed the project, various insiders have shared information about its world, main location, and revelation.

Who Will Be The Protagonist Of Resident Evil 9?

A new report has emerged clarifying a previous leak related to the game’s protagonist. According to the details, one of the most iconic and beloved characters in the saga will star in the new title.

Various sources, including Dusk Golem, have speculated about the protagonist of Resident Evil 9. A recent leak claimed that Leon S. Kennedy would be the protagonist of the game’s prologue and that, subsequently, another character would take over the story.

However, several informants have clarified this report in the past few hours, stating that Dusk Golem was actually referring to something else. Now, it is said that Leon S. Kennedy will be the protagonist throughout the entire story of the title.

That being said, it’s not clear whether Leon will be the sole playable character or if there will be a co-protagonist. Fans are excited about the idea of Leon being the protagonist of the new installment, as he is one of the most beloved characters in the saga.

It’s important to mention that this is just another rumor about Resident Evil 9, as Capcom has not confirmed any details about its upcoming game. According to reports, the game’s revelation is imminent, and its release is planned for January 2025.

As you may well know, Leon Kennedy was the main character in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, but the last time we saw him in action was in the sixth installment of the franchise. If we understand that the ninth installment will take place after Village, we will see an older version of Leon Kennedy affected by age.

Resident Evil 9 Will Have An Open World

Previously, the insider pointed out that the alleged Resident Evil 9 has been in development since 2018 and is aimed for release in 2025. They also said that it has the largest budget in the history of the intellectual property, making it a very ambitious title.

Now, Dusk Golem has returned to shed light on the matter and shared new details of the project. In a social media post, they explained that Capcom usually “greenlights new initiatives in sets of 3” and used examples such as Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, and Devil May Cry 5, which were the first titles developed using the RE Engine graphics engine.

The informant claims that Dragon’s Dogma 2, Monster Hunter Wilds, and Resident Evil 9 received similar greenlights, as they take advantage of the new “expanded open world functionalities” of the company’s graphics engine. Many fans may be concerned, fearing that the horror video game will stray too far from the classic essence of the series if it becomes an open-world adventure; however, Dusk Golem reassured the community and emphasized that Capcom wants to maintain the DNA of the franchises.

Although these details are very exciting, we must remember that they are not confirmed. As such, we recommend taking them with caution and waiting for the Japanese company to officially reveal the future of the intellectual property.
