Capcom built Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 with its proprietary RE Engine (which also powers Monster Hunter Rise), and they will all be flexing their muscles much harder on PS5 and Xbox Series. The new versions of each game will enjoy ray tracing, a “high” frame rate, and 3D audio. PlayStation 5 players will also get to take advantage of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers with the DualSense controller. More specific details will likely come closer to the release.

The latest entry in the RE franchise, Resident Evil Village, launched in May 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Stadia. Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 will now join Village on PS5 and Xbox Series. There are rumors that Resident Evil 9 will be a massive experience pulling together elements of the last two games, but time will tell. In the meantime, you can replay the games you already love for the seventh time.
