RHCE moved from being an expert or advanced level of Linux skills--kind of comparative to LPIC-2 vs LPIC-1 to what it is now, RHCE is about infrastructure automation.
According to this FAQ RHCE moved from being an elevated LINUX SME to more of an ANSIBLE based knowledge.  
I say that because your question of "Is there a new RHCE for RHEL 9?" is kind of a moot question when you look at the RHCE exam objectives 8/9 sections are specifically about Ansible features or Functions while the last 1/8 is a brief review of your RHCSA skills. Near to nothing on the exam will be about your RHEL skills.

Hope this helps!

I came looking for this info, thanks.

I'm LPIC2 and RHCSA looking to be a an All-Out Linux Battle tank, and then specialize in Ansible or whateer automation I wanted. 

But  requirements seems to focus only on ansible, and here's the kicker, I know a couple of ansible experts in my current company, but they can't even set up a Postfix, or Radius server, and don't get me started with LDAP which is completely alien for them, both of these are Industry's standards...

This discourages me deeply, All I wanted was to be that, an All-Terrain Linux Battle Tank, focused on RedHat which is my first love since 2015. 

I'll just take the training for "showcasing" but  from now on will focus on "kay-eight's" and the other "Foundation" ( wont mention their names to avoid being banned or censored)

I think the same thing but redhat employees don’t work on company that why they don’t know what companys have need.
Overall they need Linux experts I can’t imagine that redhat would continue replacing rhce exam it’s obsolete there are many startup or company use ansible like us but they need skills Linux experts

It’s possible to keep two main objectives for rhce automation or Linux advance for choosing I think it’s better four us

I think this is a good direction for the RHCE. Infrastructure as code is the future, automation and agile scaling is key. Do you think that there is still a valid need for a certification that verifies advanced Linux administration skills like the old RHCE did?

Maybe it's a mood point because Linux administration is evolving and changing and advanced Linux administration is now in the category of automation?

ex294 should be back to ex407 ansible exam or retire , and ex300 should be released again as linux all around player challenging exam (mix of ex358 ex342 ex436 ex442 and more). RHCE should be back again as a valuable certification that reflects a linux professional expert.

I agree with you on this. There are 3 or 4 ansible certs available outside of RHCE, I think RHCE should go back to being an advanced Linux SME.
