Resident Evil 2, 3, 7 PS5 Release Date Rumored to be Soon
ORIGINAL SOURCE LINK
Back in March, Capcom announced that Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be getting a re-release on PS5 at some point this year. Players are now starting to wonder if the three games will be released soon after they all appeared on the PSN backend.
The likelihood of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 releasing soon on PS5
Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard are all due to be released on PlayStation 5 in 2022. While some PSN backend listings also include a release date, these three did not have a release window as spotted by PlayStation Game Size on Twitter (thanks Reddit). However, Capcom is due to have a Showcase at 3 PM PT on June 13 that will have 35 minutes of news and in-depth updates on previously announced Capcom titles; players are hoping that these three games will be amongst those titles to get more news such as a release date.
We do know the download sizes for two of the three PS5 games, though. Resident Evil 2 will be 21.834 GB without a day one update, while Resident Evil 3 is sized at 20.480 GB. PlayStation Game Size couldn’t find a size for Resident Evil 7 but did manage to find two versions of the game: the standard edition and the Gold Edition. If this is identical to the PS4 version of the game, the Gold Edition will include the Banned Footage Vol. 1 and 2 DLCs as well as the End of Zoe and Not a Hero epilogue episodes.
Those of you who already own the PS4 version of any of the games will automatically receive a free PS5 upgrade. This means it’s probably worth mentioning that Resident Evil Raccoon City Edition, which includes Resident Evil 2 and 3, is on sale at 60% off. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Gold Edition is on sale at 50% off. Both offers will expire this week so make sure to grab them if you’re wanting a cheap upgrade.
In other news, Asian PS Plus subscribers have been on the wrong end of Sony’s pricing issues again when they received compensation worth just 10 cents instead of $10. Elsewhere, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II open multiplayer beta will arrive on PS4 and PS5 first.
