The 'Resident Evil' Franchise

The "Resident Evil" video game series was created by Capcom and made its debut in 1996 with the first "Resident Evil" game. Countless games that are part of the series have been released since, but not all are considered as main entries.

The latest main entry in the series is "Resident Evil Village," which is considered by many fans as "Resident Evil 8." There is no word yet if a ninth main installment in the video game series is in the works.

Some of the games in the video game series were remade through the years. The latest remake released by Capcom is "Resident Evil 3," which was released last year.

Aside from the video game series and the live-action film series, the "Resident Evil" franchise includes animated films, television series, novels, and comics.
