Japanese site Dengeki first reported the feature, stating, "the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version." IGN says the game's publisher, Capcom, confirmed the cross-save feature in a statement.
Cross-save functionality is traditionally reserved for titles in Xbox One's 'Play Anywhere' program--the Microsoft-led scheme where buying an Xbox One version of a game also bags you a PC copy. Neither Capcom nor Microsoft has yet confirmed Resident 7 as a Play Anywhere title. Play Anywhere has so far been limited to Xbox exclusive games.
Capcom said in its latest earnings call that it expects Resident 7 to sell 4 million copies before April 2017, with a long tail anticipated beyond that.
The horror title recently had a $180 collector's edition revealed, complete with an interactive Mansion Music Box model and severed finger USB stick. You can grab it when Resident Evil 7 launches, on January 24 2017.
