Microsoft's Phil Spencer confirmed on Twitter that Resident Evil 7 supports the company's Xbox Play Anywhere title: consumers can buy the game digitally on either Xbox One or PC and carry over their progress and Achievements between both platforms.

Only the Windows 10 Store version of Resident Evil 7 supports Play Anywhere. Consumers can buy the game on Steam, but will not be able to take advantage of cross-play features.

Capcom will throw open the creaky doors of its latest haunted house on January 24 when Resident Evil 7 shambles onto Xbox One, PS4, and PC. A free demo is available on all platforms, and Sony locked down timed exclusivity for the game's VR functionality, playable using PlayStation VR.
