Resident Evil next-gen editions will carry over your save data

Capcom has confirmed that your save game data from Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7 biohazard will all be carried over from the versions you own on previous consoles to the upgraded editions that are coming to next-gen consoles.

In case you missed it, Capcom announced that Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 3 remake are coming to the latest generation of consoles including Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Additionally, those who already have these games are eligible for a digital upgrade at no additional cost. PC players will also get some of the enhancements when the update is released.

Capcom has since made a follow up tweet declaring that save data from one version will be carried over to the other, so that when you do pick up the digital upgrade you can continue from where you left off. So if you plan on replaying these games at some point on your new shiny Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, it might be best to hold off when it does get released. However, Capcom still has not clarified when and how the next-gen versions of Resident Evil will roll out.


Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, and the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 and are all available for purchase on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles. Resident Evil 7 biohazard is also on Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass and streamable via Xbox Cloud Gaming. The most recent Resident Evil installment, 2021’s Resident Evil Village is also available for Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles.

In other news, Capcom has a lot of other games they are working on. One of the biggest reveals was made last week at PlayStation’s State of Play, a very Dino Crisis-like co-op shooter called Exoprimal.
