On March 2, 2022, Capcom announced that Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 will appear on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X sometime in 2022. There is no release date as of yet. These newer versions will have enhanced visuals. If you have these games on their original consoles, you can get them on the new generation for free. Additionally, patches will come out for PC players so that they can experience the same upgrades.

As of February 2022, Capcom announced that the Resident Evil 3 remake had sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Around the same time, Capcom revealed that the Resident Evil 2 remake had sold over 9.3 million units. In October 2021, Resident Evil 7 had sold over 10 million units worldwide. Resident Evil 7 was the first entry to use a first-person camera, as well as introduce a playable character unaffiliated with any government body.

Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 will arrive on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later in 2022 with save files and DLC transferable. They are all available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
