Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 are remakes of the original RE2 and RE3, and they released in 2019 and 2020, respectively. These remakes feature third-person shooter combat, along with some changes from the original games.
Meanwhile, Resident Evil 7 is a first-person horror game which released back in 2017, and it was a major departure from the series’ standard gameplay, especially when compared to its predecessor, RE6. While the preceding games focused on action, RE7 was a more horror and puzzle-focused experience. Moving forward, it seems that RE7 is the template for future mainline RE games given that Resident Evil Village also followed the RE7 formula, albeit with a bit more action.
Right now, there’s no info yet on a release date for Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 on PS5 and Series X|S.
