Resident Evil 7: biohazard will support cross-saves between its Xbox One and PC versions. This suggests that Resident Evil 7 could be the first third party title to feature as part of Xbox’s “Play Anywhere” scheme, alongside first party games like Gears of War 4 and Killer Instinct.
This particular bit of Resident Evil 7 news comes from the Japanese site Dengeki first reporting on the feature being included, with the outlet stating, “the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version.” Following the revelation, IGN declared that the game’s publisher and developer Capcom spoke up to confirm the cross-save aspect in a statement.
Last time we checked, Resident Evil 7 was not one of these Play Anywhere titles and the Cross Save feature would hardly make sense without it as it would require players to buy to separate copies on both the Xbox One and the PC. Hopefully Capcom will elaborate further before launch.
Resident Evil VII will be available on January 24th, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, and Xbox One.
