Many Resident Evil fans haven’t bought the new Biohazard game due to lack of 21:9 ultrawide support. On the other hand, many more are patiently waiting for Capcom to add ultrawide support to the game and are prepared to hit the buy button as soon as this happens.

Unfortunately, we have a bad piece of news for you: there will be no 21:9 ultrawide support for Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. Capcom has officially confirmed they have no plans of adding ultrawide support to the game.

Capcom explained that going wider means that certain objects and textures won’t be fully rendered out for performance considerations. This would also introduce more objects into the scenery, and having too much peripheral vision would lessen the tension and atmosphere intended for the game.

No RE 7 Biohazard support for 21:9 monitors

When asked about RE 7 Biohazard ultrawide support, Capcom offered a straight-forward answer:

There are currently no plans to support wide aspect ratio monitors.

Some Resident Evil  fans even bought ultrawide monitor specifically to play Biohazard. Taking into account Capcom’s answer, they can start looking for a new game to play, one that supports 21:9 monitors.

There are also players who swear they will never buy another game from Capcom due to lack of ultrawide support for Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. However, the company’s decision not to sacrifice game quality is to be appreciated. There are already many technical issues affecting the game, and by not adding 21:9 monitor support, Capcom only tried to reduce the number of potential bugs and keep the game tension.

What do you think about Capcom’s decision? Has this affected your future game buying decisions?
