Capcom has confirmed that players can carry over their Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 save data from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Additionally, all downloadable content included in Resident Evil 7’s Gold Edition will transfer to current-gen consoles. Further details will be announced in due course.
Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 PS4 owners can upgrade for free
Those who already own Resident Evil 2, 3, or 7 on PS4 will be able to snag the PS5 upgrades for free. Add the save data transfer on top and this deal isn’t one you wanna miss. The games’ next-gen versions will offer “cutting-edge features” such as ray-tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio. On the PS5 specifically, you’ll get DualSense support for haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
We’re happy to confirm that save data from the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of these games will carry over to their respective upgraded versions. DLC that comes with Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will transfer over, as well! https://t.co/FVVTPuHBQs

Opinion: Here’s hoping PS4 to PS5 transfers aren’t broken
Zarmena writes… PlayStation’s infrastructure has been notoriously finicky when it comes to PS4 to PS5 upgrades and data transfers so here’s hoping Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 transfers aren’t yet another embarrassment for the company and a headache for players. I can’t stress enough that Sony needs a solution similar to Microsoft’s Smart Delivery especially now that we’re more than a year into the current gen.
