Non-canon spinoffs:

  • Biohazard: The Beginning (novella) tells a story that serves as a prelude to the events of the original game.
  • Zero Hour, Umbrella Conspiracy, City of the Dead, Nemesis and Code: Veronica by S.D. Perry are retellings of RE0, 1, 2, 3 and CV, respectively.

  • An original novel Beast of the Northern Seas by Kyū Asakura focuses on Gadiwell-island used for B.O.W. research and takes place before the Mansion Incident.
  • A manga named Biohazard: The Umbrella Chronicles takes place just before the invasion of the Russian Umbrella facility.
  • Comic book simply titled Resident Evil by Ricardo Sanchez is set some time before Resident Evil 5 and features new BSAA members.
  • A comic titled Resident Evil: Fire & Ice depicted the ordeal of Charlie Team, a third STARS team.
  • The Official Resident Evil Comics told a series of events and sidestories set within the said universe.
  • A manga called Resident Evil: Marhawa Desire focuses on BSAA investigating a series of biohazard incidents occurring at Marhawa School in Singapore. Takes place early 2012.
  • A manga called Resident Evil: Heavenly Island is an official tie-in to Revelations 2 and Umbrella Corps. Takes place in 2014.

Other:

  • Jessica's Report is a DVD meant to provide some backstory to the events of Resident Evil Revelations.
  • Darkside Report is a booklet that provides some tidbits of info on the story of Darkside Chronicles.

  • Inserted Evil (an alternate reality game) is a non-canon tie-in with Operation Raccoon City.
  • No Hope Left was a series of blogs about weird occurrences leading up to the events of Resident Evil 6, spanning from January 17th to November 12th, 2012.
  • Diary of a Madman was an article in Cube magazine presented in a diary-like perspective depicting the story of RE3.5. It's non-canon as it's based on an unreleased game.
  • A radio drama called Chiisana Tōbōsha Sherry ("Sherry, the Little Runaway") continues Sherry's story and is set shortly after the end of Resident Evil 2. Deemed non-canon by later games.
  • A sequential drama called Ikiteita Onna Spy Ada ("Ada, the Female Spy, is Alive") is set a few days after the events of Resident Evil 2. Deemed non-canon by later games.
  • A collection of three drama albums called Unmei no Raccoon City ("Fate of Raccoon City") tell individual stories of civilians during the outbreak in Raccoon City, taking place over four nights.
  • BioHazard: Makoba Village Tragedy is a sound drama depicting the events at Makoba village located near Arklay Mountains during the original outbreak.

  • Resident Evil x L'Arc-en-Ciel: Don't Be Afraid is a non-canon VR experience featuring the band L'Arc-en-Ciel as a S.T.A.R.S. offshoot during the Raccoon City outbreak.


Further notes:

  • Raccoon City Secret Report isn't actually a report like the previous ones but a "Making Of" DVD for Operation Raccoon City.
  • The live action film series by Paul W.S. Anderson and all of its related media have no relation to the Resident Evil video game franchise. They are a franchise of their own.



If anyone happens to know anything else on the untranslated novels (The Beast of the Northern Seas, To the Liberty, Rose Blank) or the comic "BioHazard X" and where they are placed in the timeline, I'd be happy to know Very Happy

If there is, I can't seem to find it. This is meant to be more a chronological order for the games and a collection of all the original stories and where they're set rather than an actual timeline.

Besides, this has been here for a long long time as I made it way back after I had joined here. The original post date has apparently changed when I changed the header. For some reason this is the first time someone has actually posted in here.

I at least tend to think it is, as it is official promotional material produced by Capcom.

No see, I went by this and game play became utterly confusing. I googled Resident Evil timeline a few months back because I wanted to play them in order. So I started with part 3 up until Jill get infected, then 2, then the rest of 3. The dates listed must be a mistake made by the game developers. There is NO WAY that any part of 3 takes place before 2. In part 2 when Claire/Leon enter the Police station, the streets on the outside have not been rioted and the inside of the police station is clean. In part 3 when Jill enters the Police Station it looks like a war zone, it's filthy and doors are boarded up. This really janked up the storyline and I wish I hadn't done it. Again, even though these are the dates the game displays... it has to be a major goof in the game devolpement. Don't play them in that order.

For those games I would really advice just playing them in the regular order.

Besides, the RPD thing is just a visual mix up. Something like the place missing all the bathrooms. There's no way anyone could even had time to board everything up etc. like that because Marvin was the only cop alive in there at that point. Everyone else was either dead or out in the city.

If the place really was boarded up it was already so at the point of RE2 but the visuals were just lacking.

Still not as much as in RE3. What I meant was that if the games would have been supposed to be in the order of RE2 first then RE3 there would've been no time in between for all that to happen. Meaning it was just a visual mistake.

Play them in order from Zero to 5 Smile

However to understand the story right you will need to buy Code Veronica and Revelations as well as they are apart of the main series storyline.

Just thinking back it's crazy how we now have like 12 games and a bunch of other stuff all taking place back in 1998 during a six month period, while RE6 in itself is about a six month period from 2012 to 2013.
