Resident Evil, formerly known as Biohazard in Japan, is a Capcom horror video game franchise and media property. The series is based on true stories concerning biological weapons and virus outbreaks. There are survival horror, third-person shooter, and first-person shooter titles in the series. The series has spawned live-action films, animated films, television shows, comic books, novels, audio plays, and other forms of media and goods.

Shinji Mikami and Tokuro Fujiwara designed the first game, which was published in 1996 for the PlayStation. It is recognized with reintroducing zombies to mainstream culture and creating the survival horror genre. The series transitioned to more dynamic shooting action in Resident Evil 4 (2005), and it affected the growth of the survival horror and third-person genres by popularizing the “over-the-shoulder” third-person view. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (2017) is the first game in the series to take place in first-person, while Resident Evil Village (2021) is the first to include Lycans.

With 117 million units sold globally as of June 2021, Resident Evil is Capcom’s best-selling video game franchise. It is the best-selling horror game series, and the film adaptations are the highest-grossing live-action video game film series, making Resident Evil the most successful horror and zombie franchise ever. The series has had a significant impact on popular culture, spawning popular media in the fields of video games, cinema, and television.

The first Resident Evil, known in Japan as Biohazard, was started in 1993 when Capcom’s Tokuro Fujiwara encouraged Shinji Mikami and his coworkers to make a game based on Fujiwara’s 1989 title Sweet Home. When marketing executives were preparing to distribute Biohazard in the United States in late 1994, it was pointed out that obtaining the rights to the name Biohazard would be problematic because to the existence of a DOS game and a New York hardcore punk band named Biohazard.

A contest was launched among business employees to come up with a new name, and the winner was Resident Evil, which was the name under which the game was published in the west. In 1996, Resident Evil made its PlayStation debut, and it was eventually ported to the Sega Saturn.


The original game in the series was the first to be termed a “survival horror,” a word established for the new genre it pioneered, and its critical and financial success led to the creation of two sequels for the PlayStation, Resident Evil 2 in 1998 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis in 1999. For the Nintendo 64, a port of Resident Evil 2 was published. In addition, Microsoft Windows versions of all three were produced.

Resident Evil ” Code: Veronica, the fourth game in the series, was developed for the Dreamcast and published in 2000, followed by Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis ports. Resident Evil ” Code: Veronica was then re-released in Japan for the Dreamcast as Code: Veronica Complete, with a few tweaks, most of which were on the plot sequences. Later, under the title Code: Veronica X, this upgraded version was transferred to the PlayStation 2 and GameCube.

Despite previous announcements that the next game in the series would be published for the PlayStation 2, leading to the development of an unrelated game titled Devil May Cry, series creator and producer Shinji Mikami opted to make the series entirely for the GameCube. The series’ following three games”a remake of the original Resident Evil and the prequel Resident Evil Zero, both published in 2002, as well as Resident Evil 4 (2005)”were all released as GameCube exclusives at the time. Later versions of Resident Evil 4 were published for Windows, PlayStation 2, and Wii.

The Gun Survivor series, a trio of GunCon-compatible light gun games, featured first-person gameplay. Resident Evil Survivor, the first game, was published in 2000 for the PlayStation and PC to mixed reviews. Resident Evil Survivor 2 ” Code: Veronica and Resident Evil: Dead Aim fared a little better in the sequels. Gun Survivor 3 is the Dino Crisis spin-off Dino Stalker, while Dead Aim is the fourth Gun Survivor game in Japan. The Chronicles series, in a similar vein, incorporates first-person gameplay, but on a rails route.

The Wii game Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles was published in 2007, followed by Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles in 2009. (both were later ported to the PlayStation 3 in 2012). Resident Evil 5 was published for PlayStation 3, Windows, and Xbox 360 in 2009, and despite mixed reviews, it became the franchise’s best-selling game.
