Resident Evil 2, 3 And 7 Are All Coming To Xbox Series X|S Later This Year

Capcom has announced that its Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, along with 2017's Resident Evil 7, are all being upgraded with next-gen goodness. All three titles are coming to Xbox Series X|S later this year, with visual enhancements for the new consoles.

All three games will be getting new "cutting edge features", including ray tracing, higher frame rates and 3D audio support. These Resident Evil games were all developed using Capcom's modern RE Engine, which also powers Resident Evil Village.

There's no release schedule in here, or any further details on what the next-gen versions will deliver. We do know that the update will be free for existing owners though, and a free upgrade will also be coming to PC players when the next-gen versions launch.

This has turned out a bit of a surprise to be honest! There's been so much talk about Resident Evil 4 Remake, not to mention upcoming Village content, that we didn't expect anything like this. We'll take a free upgrade though, and we're equally intrigued as to how these versions will shape up.

Will you be dipping back into any of these three RE games later this year? Let us know in the comments.
