Resident Evil Xbox Series X|S And PS5 Versions Let You Keep Your Old Saves
If you plan on replaying Resident Evil 7 or Resident Evil 2 or 3 remakes on Xbox Series X|S and PS5,
You can do so without losing your save data. In addition to free updates, the new generation versions also support existing save data if you don’t want to start the whole journey from scratch. Capcom shared the news today on Twitter via the official Resident Evil account, stating that the PS4 and Xbox One versions are being kept in “respective updated versions.” This means you’ll have to stay in the same family of consoles to move saves, unlike some other next-gen updates like Grand Theft Auto V.
We are happy to confirm that save data from the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of these titles will carry over to their respective remastered versions. The DLC that comes with Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will also carry over!

Three games will receive “visual enhancements” on the new systems,
Though it’s unclear exactly what form they will take. If you’re playing on PC, the update released with these versions will bring games visually in line with Xbox Series X|S and PS5. Resident Evil Village, already released across generations, should give you a rough idea of what to expect. The game features Smart Delivery on Xbox consoles, while the PS4 and PS5 versions are available through the PlayStation Store with the option to install on PS5.
Capcom did not always take this approach, as the Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition games for newer systems were standalone products without any discount or transfer. But since new consoles are still hard to come by, players who are halfway through one of these Resident Evil games will be pleased to pick up where they left off if they do track down one.
