As of yet, the release dates for the PS5 and Series X versions of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 haven't been revealed. All Capcom revealed is that they'll be coming in 2022.

As soon as more is revealed, we'll be sure to update you. Since the games are just upgrades, don't expect a lot of notice when they do release.

We're coming up on a year since Resident Evil Village released, so we may get news on the next game in the series sometime soon, whether than be another numbered game or another remake.

A remake of some kind for Resident Evil 4 has long been rumoured, maybe we'll see that before a Resident Evil 9.

The upgraded versions of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 will likely be the only Resident Evil releases of 2022, however.
