I don't trust a guy who admitted to ACTUALLY "leaking" wrong information (AKA lying) for the sake of console wars.
Besides let's think a little Jill just got her game remade a year ago so the chances are if this is a continuation of the first person Resident Evil that she won't be the protagonist (if she's in at all) and instead Capcom will focus on Rosemary who's story takes place at least 15-18 years after RE8.
If they're bringing any of the old characters it'll be ina full on series reboot/soft reboot or in a spinoff game outside of the current cannon, something like a Revelations 3.
RE series will continue to get ported by their PORT TEAMS THAT FOCUS ON PORTING.
RE 9, 10, 11 etc will be made by the teams that actually make RE games from the ground up, even the teams that remake RE games, are not the same that make 7, 8 etc. None of that is an either or, would be like saying how dare they make a Bluray box set of your favorite show before starting the new season, or how dare they have a re-run and we waiting for the new season etc. It tries to make an either or, where one simply doesn't exist.
