Resident Evil 9 Will Reportedly Be Set in Southeast Asia

An early report claimed that next mainline RE series entry will be an open-world game with the biggest budget in franchise history. According to that same source, Resident Evil 9 is likely to be set in a fictional rural town of Southeast Asia.

In response to a query on X (formerly Twitter), leaker AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem recently claims that Resident Evil 9 will reportedly move to a Southeast Asian setting, which is a fictional rural town, modeled after real-life Singapore.

It will be very different from what Capcom has explored before and in Resident Evil 6, they only included China as an Asian setting. Heading over to Singapore would be a great way for RE fans to interact with very different culture as well.

From mid-Western locale of Raccoon City in original Resident Evil trilogy to a Eastern European backdrop in Resident Evil: Village, fear has moved RE series to different corners of the world as it takes upcoming Resident Evil to a new one.

New cultural inspiration is always an interesting aspect of in Resident Evil universe even though it led to some arguable missteps in past. A Singapore-based setting would be great for RE series as they are not frequently explored in games.
