Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7 biohazard are set to arrive natively on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2022, Capcom announced Wednesday.

Capcom's all-time best-selling video game franchise, as well as the highest-grossing franchise in the horror and zombie genres, the upgrades for the three acclaimed Resident Evil titles are set to bring major visual improvements that will allow players to experience the games "like never before."

Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 Next-Gen Upgrades Announced for 2022

The next-gen upgrades coming to Resident Evil 2 (2019), Resident Evil 3 (2020) and Resident Evil 7 biohazard (2017) were reportedly developed using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, including features such as ray tracing, high frame rate and 3D audio to enhance the immersion of the award-winning experiences.

For PS5 players, all three titles also feature DualSense support for Haptic Feedback and Adaptive Triggers.

Players who previously purchased Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 or Resident Evil 7 biohazard on PS4 or Xbox One are eligible for an upgrade at no additional cost through the PS4 to digital PS5 upgrade option or Xbox Smart Delivery.

Next-gen upgrade patches for all three games are also set to be released for PC players at no additional cost when the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions launch.

Upon release, the three titles will join Resident Evil Village (2021) as four out of the eight mainline series games to be designed specifically for Sony and Microsoft's next-gen hardware.
